Leftover Ham Bone Soup


Wonderful soup for warming the body and soul... and to use up that left over ham bone from your holiday meals.  


yield: 6 SERVINGS


prep time: 15 MINUTES


cook time: 1 HOUR


total time: 1 HOUR, 15 MINUTES

Use up your leftover hambone to make this cozy, hearty soup loaded with tons of veggies and chunks of sweet ham!


  • 1 leftover hambone

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced

  • 2-3 russet potato, peeled and diced

  • 1 cup canned white kidney beans, drained and rinsed

  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels

  • 3/4 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves

  • 2 bay leaves

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 2-3 cups leftover diced ham

  1. Place leftover ham bone in a large stockpot or Dutch oven and add enough water to cover the bone halfway, about 6-7 cups. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until very fragrant, about 30 minutes to 1 hour; remove and discard hambone.

  2. Heat olive oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add garlic, onion, carrots and potato. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions have become translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in ham stock, beans, corn, thyme and bay leaves; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

  3. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10-12 minutes. Stir in ham until heated through, about 1-2 minutes.

  4. Serve immediately.





Lara's Notes


1.  I add more vegetables for a heartier more filling soup.  Substitute or add any veggies you prefer.  

2.  If you like ham you will like this soup.  :)
