SATURDAY:

And here’s one of our family’s favorite recipes. This is super easy and DELICIOUS!! There is no need to soak the beans, just toss them in the crockpot.

CROCKPOT GREAT NORTHERN BEANS

1 LB. GREAT NORTHERN BEANS

HAM BONE

2 QUARTS WATER

1 1/2 TO 2 TSPS. HOT PEPPER FLAKES (1 1/2 IS PLENTY FOR ME BUT DH ALWAYS ADDS MORE WHEN HE MAKES THIS)

1 TBS BUTTER

SALT & PEPPER TO TASTE

Rinse and sort beans and put in crockpot. (I use a 6 quart crockpot) Add water to approx. 1” over beans. Add remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours. Then turn crockpot to low and cook the rest of the day (approx 6-7 hours). When done, remove meat from ham bone and toss bone. To thicken the liquid, tilt the lid so that one side is open to let the steam escape. If it’s too thick, just add a little water.

I have added this recipe to Crock Pot Wednesday at Dining With Debbie.  Head on over there to check out some more great crockpot recipes.

SUNNY SIDE UP BREAKFAST CASSEROLE

(recipe from Bob Evan’s New Family Favorite’s Cookbook)

1 LB. ROLL BOB EVANS ORIGINAL RECIPE SAUSAGE

1 CUP CHEESE FLAVORED CROUTONS

2 CUPS SHREDDED CHEDDAR CHEESE, (DIVIDED)

3/4 CUP SOUR CREAM

1 TBS. DIJON STYLE MUSTARD

8 EGGS

PAPRIKA

Preheat oven to 375*. Over med. heat, brown sausage. Drain and set aside. Grease bottom of 7 X 11” baking dish. Cover bottom of dish with coarsely crumbled croutons and sprinkle with 1 cup of the shredded cheese. In a small bowl, combine sour cream and mustard. Place half of the sour cream mixture over the cheese and croutons in evenly spaced spoonfuls. Spread sausage over top. Make eight evenly spaced shallow indentations into the sausage (about 2” in diameter) Break each egg separately into a small dish and gently slide into each of the indentations. Spoon on remaining sour cream mixture between the eggs. Sprinkle casserole with the remaining cheese and paprika. Bake 20-25 minutes until eggs are lightly set. Serve with salsa if desired. Serves 8

That potato soup sounds really good. I will have to give that a try very soon. just wanted to let you know that Mister Linky is up for this week's Crock Pot Wednesday. I would love for you to come post a slow cooker favorite. Your beans would be perfect.

Sunny side up casserole sounds great! I think it would be great to make ahead of time and just add the eggs in the morning, may try that this weekend for a welcome back breakfast for hubby who is out of town this week!

Thanks everyone for stopping by.
Cara: We had a family emergency Monday so I didn't get to make the soup, We will make it on Sunday and I'll let you know how it is.

darnold: thanks for the invite. I've linked up to crockpot Wednesdays and hope to be able to participate every Wed.

heartnsoulcooking: I love just about anything made in a slow cooker. Less fuss and only one pot to clean...lol...

The Packet Queen and TriState Saver: Well, DH fixed the casserole tonight, & the fellows loved it...I thought it was missing something but it might have been where I just didn't feel like eating to begin with. I'll give it a 2nd try some other day :(

Thanks again everyone for stopping by.
