“I'm in love with Ellie Krieger. I use her So Easy cookbook at least 2 times a week. All the recipes are delish and very healthy. This is a healthy take on baked beans. My husband (who is very into full fat flavor) requests this dish at least twice a month. (It's my secret that it's good for him and doesn't take much effort in the kitchen!) Sometimes I use a maple ham and I usually let it simmer for an hour instead of 15 min, but 15 min. works fine, too. Ellie Krieger suggests all the canned goods be low sodium for better health.”
