I was cleaning out my freezer recently and I found leftover ham. From Easter.
I promptly defrosted it, diced up the leftovers and served it baked into macaroni and cheese.
I also promised myself I wouldn’t cook ham only at Easter any more. It’s so versatile and there are always great ways to repurpose leftovers.
I was excited this week to see that Double-G Brands Ham Portions are on sale at Brookshire’s. I have just the recipe waiting for the succulent and smoky ham! I also love using my slow cooker during the summer because it doesn’t heat up my entire kitchen.

White Beans and Ham for the Slow Cooker
1 (10 oz) bag dried Great Northern Beans
1 to 2 lbs Double-G Brands Ham Portions, Bone In
1 white onion, chopped
1 cup chopped carrots
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 tsp garlic salt
1 Tbs pepper
1 Tbs dried thyme
1 Tbs rosemary
1 tsp ground cumin
Wash beans carefully and place in slow cooker.
Remove ham from bone and dice. Place in slow cooker with beans.
Add ham bone, carrots, celery, onion and spices to the slow cooker and cover with water about an inch higher than ingredients.
Cook on high heat 6 to 8 hour or low 8 to 10 hours.
Note: Monitor the water level when cooking as beans will absorb much of the liquid.
