Ingredients

    1/2 pound(s) smoked sausage
    4 slices bacon
    1.5 cup(s) (1 large bulb) fennel, sliced 2 inches long and 1/4-inch thick
    1/2 cup(s) celery, sliced 1/2-inch thick
    1/2 cup(s) onion, diced
    1 tablespoon(s) (about 2 cloves) garlic, coarsely chopped
    1/2 pound(s) dried butter beans
    3/4 teaspoon(s) fresh rosemary, chopped
    1/4 teaspoon(s) ground pepper
    1 bay leaf
    1 can(s) (14 1/2 ounces each) chicken stock
    2.5 cup(s) water

Directions

1. Brown the sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove and slice into 1/2-inch rounds. Set aside.
2. Cook the bacon in the same skillet until crisp and golden brown; remove from skillet and set aside, reserving the bacon fat. Reduce heat to medium, add the fennel and celery to the bacon fat, and cook for 4 to 5 minutes. Add the onions and garlic and continue to cook until onions become translucent. Remove from heat.
3. Place the browned sausage, cooked bacon, sauteed vegetables, and remaining ingredients in a slow cooker and cover. Cook on the low setting until beans are tender -- 6 to 8 hours. Serve hot.
