  • This Randall Beans and Ham recipe calls for 1 - 2 cups leftover diced ham.  Use as little or as much as you desire.
  • This is a great basic ham and bean soup recipe.  Add whatever seasonings and add ins you like.
  • Do not drain the beans.  The bean juice is needed to make a soupy consistency.  If you prefer a lower sodium option, drain the beans and add low sodium chicken broth instead.
