Bullseye Ham & Bean Soup

Megan Todd


Sometimes you just want a comfort food, and ya got all that leftover ham from the holidays! This is a great way to use some of it up. Makes a nice pot o'soup, freeze the leftovers for another time.
My father in law loves this soup! He even heats it up and serves it over rice for a different twist. I had no leftovers the last time I made this because he couldn't get enough!

I will be making this soup again In a couple weeks, I will post pics then!
