Slow Cooker Ham Soup

Slow Cooker Ham Soup


  • 1 ham bone with some meat left on it
  • 36 potatoes, cubed (we love potatoes so we added more)
  • 1 can of italian style diced tomatoes
  • 1 can of regular diced tomatoes
  • 1 can of black or kidney beans
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp dried chives
  • 1 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp dried sage
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 cubes of chicken bouillon (we don’t like too much salt, so we might change to 2 cans of reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper (if you like a little more spice)
  • Chopped carrots, add these to taste (we left these out)
  • Chopped celery, add these to taste (we also left this out)


  1. Put the ham bone into the slow cooker first and then pour all the ingredients on top of it (except the bouillon cubes).
  2. Dissolve the bouillon cubes into water then pour into the slow cooker.
  3. Cook on low 6-8 hours.
  4. Remove the ham bone out of the slow cooker (your ham will probably be falling off the bone)
  5. Discard the actual bones, gristle, and skin.
  6. Cut or shred the meat and place back in slow cooker.
