Ingredients

  • 8 ounces Cooked Bacon cut into small pieces
  • 1 pound Dried Great Northern Beans rinsed and sorted
  • 64 ounces Chicken stock or broth
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup Onions diced
  • 2 cups Celery diced
  • 2 cups Baby carrots sliced
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic powder
  • teaspoon Thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Black pepper

Instructions

  • First start by cooking your bacon fully and then place on paper towel to remove excess grease. Then dice up into small pieces.
  • In a strainer pour your dried beans and rinse under cold water. Remove any debris, stones or beans that are damaged.
  • Place the bacon, stock, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, rinsed dried beans, thyme, cumin, salt and pepper into the crockpot.
  • Stir well and place lid on the crockpot. Cook for 8-9 hours on low or 5-6 hours on high, or until the beans are tender and soft.
  • Serve the crockpot bean and bacon soup warm with a topping of shredded cheese, sour cream, bacon, green onions, or any other toppings you would like.

Notes

Bacon - Any cut or style of bacon works. Or if you want you can replace the bacon with ham or ham hocks if you prefer.
Bone Broth - Adding bone broth in replace of broth or stock will help add more nutrients and richness to the soup.
Soaking Beans - You do not soak the beans ahead of time. If you prefer you are welcome to soak your beans overnight in 6 cups of water.
