Skillet Bacon Cornbread & Crock-Pot White Beans & Ham {Recipes}

Skillet Bacon Cornbread. Yep, you heard read that correctly (um, hello, bacon).

Paired with White Beans and Ham, cooked in my crock-pot? Off the charts delicious.

(No really, it's that good!)

I know I've been MIA the last 2 weeks, and for that, I'm sorry. But, I got so swept up in Christmas excitement, that I simply ran out of time to share all the good stuff with you guys. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw some of my festivities. (PS. If I disappear again, check instie. I'm probably over there).

Among the Christmas festivities was our annual community group Christmas party. This was the 5th annual such event and it's been at my house for 4 of those years. It's kinda a tradition. At this particular Christmas party, we shoot for a kid-free, sit down dinner. Thanks to some childcare arranging, we pulled it off beautifully this year. Ham was served. Sweet potatoes were eaten. Veggies, enjoyed. Glasses clinked gayly. Get the idea? It was a regular good time! And, afterward, I was left with a perfect ham bone, in which to make a perfect pot of beans. In my crock-pot, for convenience sake.

These beans were paired with an easy and delicious skillet bacon cornbread from H-E-B. Growing up, we always had beans on New Years' Day. It just seems to be the perfect wintry meal, amiright?

Crock-Pot White Beans and Ham

16 oz Dried Northern White Beans
Ham Bone (mine was from a 9 lb ham)
4 C Chicken Stock
2 C Water
1 Bay Leaf
2 Cloves of Garlic, minced
1 Small White Onion, diced
1 t. Black Pepper (or more/less to taste)
1 t. Salt (or more/less to taste)

Step 1: Prepare beans by sorting and rinsing. Then soak them overnight, according to the package directions.
Step 2: Drain and rinse beans and place in the crock pot with remaining ingredients.
Step 3: Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours, until beans are tender. Remove ham bone and meat. Discard bones and shred ham. Return ham to crockpot
Step 4: If too much liquid remains, remove some of it with a small cup.
Step 5: Serve beans warm with Skillet Bacon Cornbread**

So easy and so very tasty. My hubby could eat beans for every meal. I'm not kidding. Each time I make a pot of beans, he asks why I don't make them more often. My daughter is fond of them too, actually. So, yeah, this dish is always a hit in my home :)

To get the Skillet Bacon Cornbread recipe, head on over to the H-E-B site. By using an oven-proof skillet (like my iron skillet), this dish goes from the stovetop (for the bacon cookin') to the oven (for the cornbread bakin'). Easy-peasy.

I'm not even lying, when my three-year-old bit into this bacon-flecked cornbread she said "Mmmmm...bacon. Delish".

Ha! What a...ham ;).

***I partnered with H-E-B to share these yummy recipes. But, opinions and stories are (clearly) my own.
