Ham, green beans, potatoes and corn bread

This recipe seems almost too simple to even write. Really, any one of you could have come up with this. But it is a family favorite in our home so I am sharing. I know many of you like quick and simple. This is both.

    This is one of my favorite summer recipes because I can pick fresh green beans and potatoes to use, it’s simple, and I don’t have to turn the oven on!! The ingredients are also relatively inexpensive too!!

    I grew up on this dish, although Mom cooked it on top of the stove in a Dutch oven. It’s wonderful!

    To freeze, do you cook it and then freeze it?

  5. I love this recipe. I made it first last month when posted then three times since!! Love the fact that fresh green beans are abundantly available at our local farm market. Easy and yummy. Thanks!!

    This dish did not work so well for me. The whole dish comes out with a funky after taste. I’m not sure if it is the potatoes or what, as some of them discolored a little because I guess I didn’t have enough water. I was wondering if anyone else had that experience? Oh well, I think I will just skip on trying to freeze potatoes like this.

      We had the same problem. I suspect it might be that we are using a really big oval crockpot, because we had the same problem with our pot roast. In theory both recipes should have been awesome, but weren’t so much in reality. I’m willing to give them another shot if we ever get a smaller slow cooker, where the liquid will cover all the veggies.
