Leftover Ham Soup

Leftover Ham Soup

Leftover Ham Soup

This leftover ham soup legit is SO delicious. After Christmas, we had SO much ham leftover. We used it for breakfast and lunches as it is, but I wanted to create something new! 

I know so many people that were gifted Instant Pots for Christmas, which is so awesome. They are all the hype right now for good reason!

This recipe doesn’t take long to make and get a hot soup on the table for dinner. It also warms your soul if you’re in a location that is SO cold right now. I’m in Austin, TX and for the past couple of weeks it’s been in the 40s. I’m used to 80 degree weather year around in Florida. But, I’m loving the change – it truly feels like the winter season!   This soup is perfect for this weather!
