Here’s my recipe for Slow Cooker Thursday for this week. This is sponsored each week by Sandra over at Diary of a SAHM

Today’s recipe is from Mable Hoffman’s Crockery Cookery. I love her recipes! This one is an old favorite of our families…..and I realized this morning I haven’t made it in AGES! It will be in next week’s menu rotation, I think šŸ™‚

Pizza Beans

from Mable Hoffman’s Crockery Cookery

Makes 6-8 servings

If possible, stir beans once or twice while they are cooking to ensure that they are all coated with the sauce.

1 lb. dried great northern beans, sorted, rinsed and soaked overnight (drain before assembling this recipe)
3 1/2 cups water

4 tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped

1 onion, chopped

1/4 cup chopped red or green bell pepper

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 teaspoon salt (I use more)

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed

1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed

1 cup (4 oz.) shredded mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup grated romano or parmesan cheese.

In a slow cooker, combine beans, water, tomatoes, onion, bell pepper, garlic, salt, oregano and rosemary. Cover and cook on high 6-7 hours or until beans are tender. Top with mozzarella, then romano cheese. Cover and cook another 10 minutes or until cheese melts.

I like to serve this over a nice crusty loaf of whole grain bread, OR you could serve it with a nice bread to “sop up” the sauce…..a fresh mixed greens or spinach salad will round this meal out beautifully!

    These sound delicious!!! I’m saving this recipe and I can’t wait to try it! I love your idea of serving it with a nice crustly loaf of bread. Sounds like the perfect fall meal!

    Sounds good Lori, and really pretty healthy too I’d say. I love things that have tomato cooked in them…I hope to try it soon!

  3. Emily says:

    I wonder if my kids will eat more beans if they hear it’s “Pizza Beans”?! I’ll have to try this on them!

    These sound SO good Lori, another great Fall meal šŸ™‚

    Thanks so much for sharing and for playing along šŸ™‚

    Gonna have to try this one….Anything that sounds like pizza sound good enough for me šŸ™‚

  6. I love this! I’m always looking for meatless meals for our family on Fridays that don’t include cheese and pasta.
