Ham and Bean Stew
Total TimePrep: 5 min. Cook: 7 hours
Makes6 servings (1-1/2 quarts)
I made this for dinner last night and followed the recipe exactly. It was quite tasty but the next time I make it I'll use "enhanced" canned baked beans (ex: brown sugar and bacon flavor or brown sugar bourbon flavor, etc.) I think the extra flavor from these beans would give the finished dish more "punch". I also think adding chopped onion would be good. I also would like to try using smoked sausage instead of ham. All in all this recipe is very good and I would make it again.
How can this be made without using canned beans?
This is why I love TOH website. I can always find a recipe that has all of the ingredients in it that need to use up from my fridge and freezer. What a great recipe! I, too, added onion and garlic and used broth as suggested by others.
This was wicked easy and delicious. I did add onion and garlic and used chicken broth instead of water. Thanks for sharing!
I added one chopped onion, made broth instead of water using my old reliable "Better Than Bouillion" (no, I don't work for them!!) xoxo
Looks good, but haven't made it yet. I have a question, though...are baked beans the kind with sugar in them? That's the only kind I could find in my local supermarket and wonder if this will make the stew too sweet.
This was good, but it just wasn't what I expected from a stew. It was better with shredded cheddar on top.
I haven't tried it yet, but I will. I was wondering if you could use yams (sweet potatoes) instead of regular potatoes.
I've made this quite a few times over the years. It's a great way to use up leftover ham. My husband and I love it. It always gets eaten up in record time.
