Savory Green Beans and Ham Recipe


ham and green bean recipe


My husband and I decided we wanted ham so we just happened inside a Honey Baked Ham store. Okay so in all honesty, we drove there exactly for the store. You know, to buy an ham. I really do like ham but it’s one of those things I only have a few times a year so I savor it when I do. There’s just nothing like a sweet nice ham. Right?

I always say I like simple recipes and that’s because I really do.

My 3 and a half year old helped by breaking up all of the fresh green beans. Letting her cook and be involved in the kitchen is something she really enjoys so I try to find easy way to engage her.

We added 3 cups of organic vegetable stock to the pot and 2 cups of chopped ham. In total there were 4 or 5 cups of green beans. Let’s just say we’ll have them for leftover tomorrow.

I just let them cook on a low heat in my copper pot for a few hours. The house smells amazing and it’s another easy way to enjoy ham (or bacon) with your greens.

    This looks great. It is very similar to a recipe I make with green bean, ham and rice. I can’t wait to try this. Thanks!
