Leftover Holiday Ham & Split Pea Soup

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
SERVES: 10-12




  • Chop veggies and meat, then combine everything in a large stockpot -- going VERY EASY on the salt as your ham and bouillon might be salty enough already (you will test and add more later if needed).
  • Stir, then bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Don't walk away from the pot.as soon as it comes to a boil,stir, then lower the heat to low and drop a lid on the pot, venting just a bit for a few minutes so you don't have a boilover.
  • As soon as the temperature drops enough to avoid a boilover (a few minutes), go ahead and let the lid sit fully on top of the pan.
  • Let cook on low, covered, for about 1 1/2 hours,stirring once or twice, until all veggies are tender.
  • Give the finished soup a taste test and adjust salt and other seasonings as needed.
