easy ham and bean soup
Bean soup is something that brings back many good memories When I was a kid, Iwould stay at my grandmas. She would pull her ham and bean soup she’d made out of the freezer. It was always frozen in perfect portions for a meal. Or we’d make it, so I could write down her recipe (which was never measured). I make an easy ham and bean soup as her’s involves soaking the beans overnight.
Using canned beans saves you a day in making bean soup (not to mention less prep time).
You can dump all the ingredients into the slow cooker, stir, turn on the crock pot and walk away.
This is perfect to make after cooking a ham and there are leftovers. You don’t need a lot to give this soup lots of flavor.
