Are you craving a savory and soothing meal with a slightly smoky flavor? The Large Family Easy Slow Cooker Ham and Bone Soup is just what you need! Eat it for lunch, dinner, or even a snack when you want something light and good for you.




  • 1 meaty ham bone
  • 3 potatoes, diced
  • 2 cups carrots, sliced
  • 2 small onions, diced
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 8 cups chicken broth or water
  • 2 bay leaves
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon thyme leaves
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper



  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a large slow cooker. Stir everything around the hambone to combine.

  2. Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for 9 to 10 hours or cook on the high setting for 4 to 6 hours.

  3. Before serving, remove the hambone and bay leaves. Remove the meat from the bone, cut the meat into bite size pieces, and return to the soup.  




Freezer Tip:   Cool the cooked soup and place in freezer safe bags or airtight containers for up to 3 months.  To prepare: For best results, thaw the soup in the refrigerator overnight. Warm in a stockpot over medium heat on the stovetop or in the microwave.
