What to do with leftovers … Ham and Bean Soup!

With all the leftovers, there are only so many ham or turkey sandwiches you can eat. Why not turn those leftovers into some gorgeous reborn meal such as this Ham and Bean Soup?

So here’s the deal, grab your slow cooker, throw in a few ingredients, turn that sucker on and go shop, shop … shop or sit back and enjoy a few of your favorite movies and relax (I’ll take the latter).

I’m not opposed to getting out and fighting the crowds, hoping to get that deal that you waited for in that very long line for what seems like hours with 3 young children, but I’m going to pass. For me, I’ll enjoy a few movies (love you Netflix) that I’ve already seen year after year and cuddle up with my little ones, there’s absolutely nothing better! I’m also going to take a little mini-kitchen vacay and let my slow cooker do all the work *big smiles*.

If you need to use up those leftovers, here's a great way to reinvent your ham and enjoy a satisfying meal.

Ingredients

  • 2 (15 oz) cans Great Northern Beans (or White Bean such as Cannellini beans)
  • 4 - 5 cups (about 2 - 3 lbs) leftover Ham plus the Bone, pulled or shredded with a fork (We like a glazed spiral sliced ham, but most any ham would work)
  • 2 stalks Celery, diced
  • 2 (@ 1 1/2 cups) Carrots, diced (I like to use the "snack" bags of carrots that are small and easy to dice)
  • 32 oz Low Sodium Chicken or Vegetable Broth
  • 3 Bay Leaves
  • 1 tsp dried Thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dried Parsley
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper

Instructions

  1. In a slow cooker set to low, place the shredded Ham and Ham bone in the bottom of a 5 - 6 qt slow cooker.
  2. Top it off with the remaining ingredients, cover and set the timer for about 6 hours.
  3. When done, taste and adjust accordingly, remove the Ham Bone and Bay Leaves.
  4. Serve with some crusty bread o crackers and Enjoy!

Notes

Notes: If you didn't enjoy a ham this year, you can also use a pork roast shredded as well. If you are not a fan of Ham, then try a bit of that smoked Turkey in this soup in stead and enjoy.

From my world of Little Figgy to you, I want to wish you a beautiful Happy Thanksgiving and Brilliant Holiday season!
