After thanksgiving or Christmas we always have a nice meaty ham bone and we always throw out away. Not this year! This is my aunt's recipe with as little twist, BACON! as a side note, if the bone doesn't have much meat, buy a bone in ham steak to make it more meaty.


  1. 1. Layer the ingredients in the crock pot in the order listed.
  2. 2. Cook on high for 4-5 hours, or on low for 8-10 hours.
  3. 3. After the cook time, remove the bay leaf, bacon, and ham bone. Shred any large pieces of ham and mix well. Enjoy!
