Slow Cooker Ham & White Beans

Slow Cooker Ham and White Beans - only 4 ingredients! This is a family favorite. Dry white beans, leftover ham, onions and water. We serve it with homemade cornbread for a hearty meal. Our favorite way to use up leftover holiday ham.

This is the last recipe from our Christmas ham.  I always look forward to finishing off the ham with a nice big bowl of white beans and slice of cornbread.  This recipe is super simple.  It uses a pound of dried beans and simmers all day in the crockpot with a big ham bone.  The Honey Baked Ham store sells ham bones year round (found that out on twitter).  If you don’t have ham bone, use some ham shanks, ham hocks or just some chopped up ham.  I love the creaminess of white beans combined with the saltiness of the ham.  This is comfort food at its best!

  1. I grew up eating this! Reminds me of Sunday afternoons in the winter at my grandparents' house. I've been craving it forever, and lo and behold – found the recipe here!

  2. I just made Ham and Beans and am getting ready to blog about it. Tis the season. 🙂 I'm so glad to find out that Honey Baked sells bones year round. Great information.

  3. Ahh I think I found my soul mate here. My husbands name is Tad, I love to cook and bake, and I love that your blog is "Plain Chicken." The question is you you like "Naked Noodles" I too have expanded my eating selection as I get older, but still just love things simple. I will defiantly enjoy your blog:) Thanks

  4. Just made the same thing for the hubs using a leftover bone. He loves this. But never thought to use the crock pot. SO much easier.

  5. This is on our menu for Monday. My Grandma used to make ham and beans for me when I was a little girl, so this is comfort food for me, too! Thanks for the recipe!
