What To Serve With Ham And Beans

You are welcome to eat your ham and beans plain or serve up your favorite sides. I will share a few ways we pair things with our beans.

What Beans To Use In Recipe

I might be a bit different but I use two different kinds of beans. Cannellini and Pinto beans.

We purchase canned beans, then drain off the liquid and give them a rinse, and then you are ready to toss in.

If you use dry beans the cook time will need to be a bit longer, as it takes time for it to soften. And a note to cooking with dry beans, never open the lid as it will make it to where your beans might not soften properly.
