I have been trying to put more budget friendly meals into my monthly meal plan. This seems perfect to add! I think I might add some garlic when I brown the onions. I might fry up some potatoes and add cornbread. I bet my husband will fall in love with this recipe. He loves beans, and is always willing to try a new recipe that has them in it.

This sounds so delicious, but I have to agree with sunshine that it would be so much better with some pork to add a bit of flavor. We always make our bean soup with pork and put it over cornbread with some friend potatoes on the side. Thanks for posting, I have never put milk in my beans before, but now I want to try it.

I was "heeby-jeeby" about the milk and beans idea but tried it anyway. I was totally surprised. It was good. I did add some additional seasonings as I like garlic and bacon. Give it a try. You'll be surprised too I'll bet!

A simple, filling soup. Doesn't have a ton of flavor, so if you're expecting something with a punch, this may not be your favorite. A good option for a winter weeknight meal!

I added some red pepper flakes to spice it up-just a little heat! I don't want it too spicy or my grandkids won't eat it. I used up some bakery bread that was a little dry and made my own croutons. I toasted them in a little butter in a cast iron skillet so they were crispy on the outside but chewy on the inside. Then I threw on some grated cheddar cheese on top with the croutons and it was beautiful! I should've taken a pic of it! Tasted good too. Even my son-in-law ate it, and he's not a big soup fan!

I was a little nervous to try this because the ingredients were so simple I wasn't sure how it would taste, but it wasn't bad! I'm not sure I'd make this unless I was short on ingredients in my pantry, but the recipe turned out well.

This is a very good recipe. Old one designed to stretch the food dollar. The milk is way too high at 4Q...more like 4 c. I have always enjoyed the taste. I also serve it with garlic crusty bread for dipping. You need to give this a try. Creamy and comforting. Thanks for the post.

How does it get a five star rating, when no one made it to let others know their opinion regarding taste, etc. Anyone out there ever tasted it? I'm having trouble with the idea of milk and beans, but it does sound like a possibly tasty meal.

HOW MUCH BREAD, AND WHAT KIND?
Sep 13, 2013
Hello! Since the recipe itself doesn't specify, I believe you can use any type of bread that you'd like. Also, in the second step, it says to add the ingredients to taste, so I you can add as much or as little bread as you'd like. Enjoy!

WHAT KIND OF BREAD, AND HOW MUCH? THANKS
Jan 07, 2013
sounds very good as long as it can be cut in half

I think this will be too large of a pot for 2 people?
Apr 22, 2012
you can always cut the recipe in half- which is what I will probably do- 1/2 and onion chopped- 1/4 stick of butter- 1 1/2 cups cooked navy beans- 2 quarts milk- bread cut into pieces and salt and pepper to taste!!!
