Ham and Beans Soup

This is the kind of soup winters are made of! Delicious, hearty, and comforting. Great idea for leftover holiday ham.

My mom used to cook the dry Great Northern Beans for this Ham and Beans soup all day on the stove. I really enjoyed those beans, and appreciate the time that went into that dinner. I, however, use canned Great Northern Beans, and this dinner is ready in less than 30 minutes. Sorry mom! Slightly adapted from the recipe my mom used to make, but still incredibly delicious and quick! This is the perfect recipe for the leftover holiday ham! Here’s the recipe for this warm your heart & soul, comfort food, soup:

  • Simmer, with the lid on, for about 30-45 minutes or until the liquid starts to thicken up
