It’s that time of the year. Harvest season is in full swing! So most of us (farm women) are feeding lots of people with little time to do it in. If you aren’t involved in Ag, fall brings back school, sports, etc. And lots of running. Behold the life saving device, ok maybe not that extreme but you get the picture, the Crock Pot. I love cooking with my Crock Pot. Throw in a few ingredients, come home from the barn and POOF dinner is done! Our past week has been a chilly one so it was time to bust out some comfort food. Ham and beans with corn bread, yum!
Crock Pot Ham and Beans
- 6 Cups Chicken Broth
- 1 Pound white beans, rinsed and sorted (no one wants to eat a rock!)
- 1 Pound of ham or ham hocks
- 1 medium white onion, diced
Put all ingredients in to crock pot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or until beans are tender. Viola! That was a toughy 😉
Homemade Corn Bread
- 2Cups Bisquick
- 2 Tablespoons Corn Meal
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 Cup Milk
Mix together the dry ingredients (Bisquick, corn meal, sugar). Melt the butter in the microwave. Add milk and eggs to the butter. Pour in to the Bisquick mixture, stir until combined. Pour in to a greased 8×8 baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. The top will be a golden brown when done baking.
If this looks to time consuming or you simply don’t feel like baking, bust out a box of Jiffy corn bread!
These recipes are comfort food to the extreme for me! Hope you enjoy this during the crazy fall!
