Each time I make this it's a little different. You really can play with the amounts of ingredients. This is my base recipe and I tweak from there. You can cut the meat out too but I always use the beef bouillon cubes, you'll want to double or triple your veggies if you're going without the meat.Submitted by ANDICOONS
Time to Pick a Bone
You can make a good ham and bean soup using just cubes of ham alone, but to get the best flavor you should use a ham bone. You can get your ham bone from the butcher, since they will often give them away or sell them very cheaply, or you can use a leftover bone from a ham that you have served for dinner.
If you are making a ham for dinner, then any leftover ham can be used in the soup as well. In fact, the best ham and bean soup recipes use both ham bones as well as cubes of ham.
This soup is sooooooo good you won't believe the calorie counts!! I got this recipe from a co-worker, but changed the ingredients a bit (originally called for 2 cups of heavy cream-yikes!) I don't think that you will miss any of it in this version. My kids even ate it!Submitted by PURPLEGIRL1616
