Crockpot Ham, Green Beans and Potatoes

grew up with green beans, potatoes and ham.  So I decided to put a fun twist on this family favorite. I have always wanted to try bacon as the ham element and what better way to cook this recipe than in a crockpot!

I am happy to report that this recipe was loved by the entire family. I was able to use vegetarian bacon to make this vegetarian friendly for Darryl, and it also turned out great.  This quick and easy side is perfect for any family occasion.

“I make this dish often; I have never really measured the ingredients, but can give you a reasonable approximation. Note: Freeze leftover cooking liquid, and then add to bean soup, ham or cabbage dishes, or use to cook dumplings in. It’s delicious!”

To Make this Recipe You’Il Need the following ingredients:


2 lbs of fresh green beans

2 lbs of ham

4 baking potatoes

1 small onion


Dice the ham, onion and potatoes.

Put everything in the crockpot along with 3 cups of water and season to taste with pepper.

Put on low for about six hours.
