Kind of like pea and ham soup but made with beans - not peas, and chopped ham - not ham bones. You can halve this easily.
This will work well in a slow cooker also. Just wait till the last 45 minutes and add cream and set cooker on high. I like the slow cooker in the hotest summer months. We live in NV where the mid day can be clost to 115 or 120. Have to keep the kitchen COOL. - 20 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
What a great way to use up that ham bone taking up freezer space! I didn't have any cream so I used skim milk powder instead. I don't think anyone noticed the difference because my kids and husband loved it. - 19 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I loved this recipe.......I just "tweaked" it a bit to make it my own. I added Chicken boullion, I used the pre-packaged (8 oz.) chopped ham bits (usually used in omlets) that you find in the dairy section with the cold cuts. I also added a few teaspoons of Oscar Meyer bacon bits. Instead of fresh onions I used seasoned onion flakes from my spice rack. The broth is thin but oh so good! - 06 Apr 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
