Crockpot Ham Bone Split Pea Soup

Leftover Ham Bone split pea soupWe enjoyed the most amazing ham this year for Easter and although most of it got eaten I had this huge ham bone with tons of meat left on it I didn’t want to go to waste. Eric had talked about wanting some split pea soup. Working full time I don’t have a lot of time leftover to do a lot of cooking so I decided to try making it in the crockpot. It turned out so delicious!

You only need a handful of ingredients and you can leave it all day.

Ingredients
  1. 1 (16 ounce bag) green split peas, rinsed and drained
  2. 2 carrots, chopped small
  3. 2 ribs celery, chopped small
  4. 1 large sweet onion, chopped small
  5. 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  6. 1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  7. 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
  8. 1 bay leaf
  9. 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  10. 2 teaspoons black pepper
  11. 1 meaty ham bone
  12. 4 cups low sodium chicken broth
Instructions
  1. 1. Layer ingredients over the ham bone, in the slow cooker adding the chicken broth and bay leaf last. Cover and cook on HIGH for 7 to 8 hours.
  2. 2. Stir occasionally so the peas don't stick to the sides. When peas are tender, remove the ham bone and bay leaf.
  3. 3. Enjoy! This soup freezes well. Thaw overnight before enjoying again!

 So, I tried really hard to take a nice photo of this soup but lets face it, split pea doesn’t look super delicious…even though it is! 🙂

How was your Easter? Have you made it through your leftovers yet?
