Bean, Bacon & Ham Soup

One of the best things about winter eating is soup, and one of the best things about winter eating in my kitchen is Bean, Bacon and Ham soup. I don’t know about you, but I always want Ham when it comes to holidays. But even when I buy the smallest spiral ham I can find, James and I are left with days and days of leftovers.

There’s only so many ham sandwiches a girl can eat. Even when they’ve got stone ground mustard and crisp lettuce, and super wonderful KerryGold Dubliner cheese on them. So the perfect use for all those leftovers, including the ham bone is a no-brainer. It’s soup every time.

When I was a kid, my dad used to come home to eat lunch every day. During the summers, we’d always eat Campbell’s Bean with Bacon soup and a sandwich. The sandwich always varied, but the soup never did. We both adored it.

I’ve come as close here to that commercial version as I think I can. But I promise, there’s not nearly as much salt, nor are there any chemical preservatives. Just good, honest soup that is easily frozen in zip loc bags for future meals. It’s comfort in a bowl, and if I do say so myself, mmm mmm good.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

This sounds so good. My son loves beans so we're always looking for new bean recipes!

I'd like to invite you to participate in Foodie Friday, to become a Monday event after tomorrow. Thanks again for the soup recipe, and I love your blog name... super cute. :)

You couldn't describe better your soup "..Just good, honest soup ..". The list of ingredients is very rich. It's pretty similar to my grandmother traditional soup even if thyme in her version was missing. I take note your recipe to do it asap.

Hello Amber! I've been enjoying your blog for a while and have linked to your recipes in the past. I was curious, have you ever participated in a blog hop? We'd love it if you came and checked ours out on Friday, the theme is Favorite Soups, this one above is great! Anyway, it's a great way to get some link love.

Hope to see you there, take care,
