left over ham

What do you do with left over ham and ham bone?

I usually make split pea soup but would like some other options.. any ideas?

... imagine a puddle waking up one morning and
thinking, 'This is an interesting world I find myself in - an
interesting hole I find myself in - fits me rather neatly, doesn't it?
In fact it fits me staggeringly well, must have been made to have me
in it!' This is such a powerful idea that as the sun rises in the sky
and the air heats up and as, gradually, the puddle gets smaller and
smaller, it's still frantically hanging on to the notion that everything's going to be alright, because this world was meant to have him in it, was built to have him in it; so the moment he disappears catches him rather by surprise.

 I got this recipe from  You can probably change it up to make it in the crock pot.  It's sooooo good.  Everyone in my family raves about it.  I usually add some carrots to mine.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup


  • 3 1/2 cups peeled and diced potatoes
  • 1/3 cup diced celery
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup diced cooked ham
  • 3 1/4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground white or black pepper, or to taste
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk


  1. Combine the potatoes, celery, onion, ham and water in a stockpot. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the chicken bouillon, salt and pepper.
  2. In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour with a fork, and cook, stirring constantly until thick, about 1 minute. Slowly stir in milk as not to allow lumps to form until all of the milk has been added. Continue stirring over medium-low heat until thick, 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, and cook soup until heated through. Serve immediately.

googled this one...

Crockpot Heavenly Ham Casserole -
6 med potatoes, sliced thin
1 med. onion chopped
1 lb. ham, cubed
1 cup cheese, shredded (cheddar)
1 can cream of mushroom soup

Put 1/2 potatoes, then 1/2 onion, then 1/2 ham and cheese, repeat with rest of potatoes/onions/ham/cheese.
Spread soup over top so air doesn't get to potatoes if possible. Sprinkle with paprika.
Cook on low for 8-10 hours.

 Ham & Bean Soup-Crockpot

1 ham bone (with sm. amt. ham still on)
2 c. Navy beans or mixed beans
8 c. water (3 c. more may be added, after bone is taken out, then cook some more)
1 clove garlic, minced (or 1/2 tsp. garlic powder)
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. honey
1 bay leaf
1 lg. onion, chopped
Salt & pepper, to taste


Wash beans. Put everything in crock pot along with ham bone (that has small amount of ham still on). Start cooking at high (I usually start it in the evening) and after it starts cooking, turn to simmer. (I cook it all night and until serving time at noon or even later.) I usually remove the bone in the early morning and add more water. Remove bay leaf before serving.
