Navy Bean and Ham Pot Pie
- 1 small
- pkg. dry navy beans (or great northern white beans) i like the navy beans because they are smaller
- ham steak (cubed)
- 1 small
- onion (chopped)
- stalks of celery (cubed)
- 2 large
- carrots (cubed)
- 4 qt
- water (need lot of broth for noodles to cook properly)
- 1 1/2 c
- 3/4 c
- whole egg
- 1/2 tsp
POT PIE DOUGH (LIKE NOODLES / DUMPLINGS)
Fill a 6 qt pot with the beans and 4 quarts of fresh water.
1.Combine flour, milk, egg, and salt. Mix well. If dough is too sticky just add a little more flour.
2.Roll dough out on flour covered area to about 1/4" inch thick. (Thickness should be about twice what you would use for actual pie crust.) Cut dough into 1 1/2" squares to make noodles.
Note 1: if you cook the dough too long they will slowly disintegrate into the soup. This is not bad, it won't ruin the soup, but you won't have any of the delicious pot pie to eat -- which is part of the pleasure.
