Ingredients

How to make it

  • Soak the beans in water overnight.
  • Drain the water from the beans and place in slow cooker. Add six cups fresh water.
  • Cook bacon pieces until done, but not too crispy. Remove from pan with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Add drained bacon to slow cooker.
  • Add remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or until beans are tender.
  • Remove three cups of beans with a slotted spoon. Mash (I used a potato masher) or puree in food processor according to the texture you like. Return mashed beans to slow cooker. Cook for 30 minutes more to rewarm mashed beans.
  • I served the soup in a bread bowl made from a small round loaf of sourdough bread.

    Frankieanne....I have Hickory Liquid Smoke but I know that there is a Mesquite Liquid Smoke available as well. Which one did you use?

    Soup's On!
    My only concern is if the beans will be done on LO after 8-10 hours. I have had poor results cooking beans in a crock pot in the past.
    Beans were done but I kicked the crock up to HI for a couple of hours in the middle.

    When I take a spoon-full of Campbell's Bean with Bacon soup it brings me back eons ago to being a kid and having that for lunch beside a Grilled cheese sandwich. Kind of hallowed ground really. But ML2C says it can be done homemade and that is intriguing. We're gonna bookmark this and give her a whirl.
