A ham bone is slow cooked with veggies like potatoes, carrots, corn, and beans. Serve it with some easy dinner rolls for the perfect meal!

Ingredients

  • 1 meaty ham bone
  • 1 lb Yukon gold potatoes diced
  • 3 carrots sliced
  • 2 stalks celery sliced
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 15 oz cannellini beans drained and rinsed (white kidney beans)
  • 7 cups chicken broth or water
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 sprigs thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients in the slow cooker.
  • Cover soup and cook on high 6 hours or low 9-10 hours.
  • Remove ham bone, bay leaves and thyme stems (if using fresh thyme).
  • Chop meat from the bone and add back into the soup. Stir and serve.

Recipe Notes

Note: I usually make this with water but it can be made with broth or a combination. The size of your ham bone or the amount of meat on the bone can add more or less flavor.
