This even got a thumb's up from my bean-disliking husband. Leftovers freeze well.

This is pretty good - very similar taste to boston brown beans but with meat. I subbed low fat diced turkey sausage for the ham but followed the recipe otherwise. I think I would have preferred the vegetables to be even more tender. All in all, it was a hearty, healthy & easy recipe.
My family couldn't get enough of this. Simple and hearty. I served it over cheesy cornbread. Fantastic.
This was a good low fat, tasty, quick dish! Reminded us a lot of bbq. I loved the beans, and would even add more next time. Also though it would make an interesting soup so might try adding chicken broth and thinning it out a bit. Will make again. Thanks!
