Celebrating Home Bean Pot Recipes



Bean Pot Recipes

Although Celebrating Home Bean Pots are no longer sold through home parties or through online sales recipes can still be viewed below.  They bake food wonderfully & clean up is a snap! It creates a stone oven and makes its own juice!  It also keeps food warm longer while serving.

Since your Bean Pot is made out of clay it also retains coldness. This means you can serve potato salad (or any other dish you want to keep cold) in your chilled Bean Pot.  It will help keep your food cold while sitting at your table.

The Bean Pot also makes a wonderful ice bucket for casual dinners.

Bean Pots make wonderful gifts for weddings, birthdays, Christmas and other special occasions.

You may need to buy a smaller roast to fit in a smaller size Bean Pot. Just remember to make sure the meat is thawed first before you place it into the Bean Pot.

Pour the mixture from the bowl over the biscuits in the bean pot. If the biscuits and add-ins aren't covered to your liking, add eggs as needed. Cover with cheddar cheese- add more, if you like... Bake uncovered in a 350 pre-heated oven for 20 minutes, or until the egg mixture is firm, and cheese is melted. Let settle for 3-5 minutes, serve and enjoy!
