Crockpot Ham and Bean Soup

READY IN: 8hrs 15mins
Recipe by Margie99

This is a soup my mom made all the time and I couldn't stand it but right now it sounds so good to me. It is so easy that I like to make it on those busy winter days.

I made this soup and quite frankly the broth was watery in consistancy. The 2nd time I made I DID NOT soak the beans..I remembered my Mom never did. Not soaking was a time saver and the soup came out nice and thick not watery.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak the beans overnight.
  2. The next morning, after I rinse the beans, I just throw everything in the crockpot, put in enough water to come within an inch of the top of the crock and put it on low for 8 hours or as long as 12 hours. This usually works great in my 3.5 qt crockpot. Rethinking this, I realized that everyone doesn't have the same size crockpot that i did, I would suggest adding water to no higher than an inch above the beans.
  3. Remove the bay leaf and serve.
