      Crockpot Ham, Green Beans and Potatoes is my go-to recipe for using leftover ham. We usually cook a big ham on all the Major holidays (along with Turkey or Beef) and this is by far the most delicious “Leftover” recipe ever!


      Ingredients
      2 lbs of fresh green beans, cut into pieces
      2 lbs of ham, diced
      4 baking potatoes, washed & diced
      1 medium Vidalia or red onion, diced

      Put everything in the crockpot, add 3 cups of water and season to taste with pepper.

      Do not add salt until you are ready to serve as potatoes absorb salt and you’ll end up adding way too much!

      put on low for about six hours

      other ideas:

      if your ham didn’t have much flavor the first time around you can use chicken broth in place of the water, add a bay leaf (but remove it before serving).

      if you prefer “crispy” green beans- add them during the last hour of cooking instead of when you start the crockpot.

      This is one of my favorite go-to leftovers with ham. I just add my beans during the last hour of cooking as I prefer them a bit crisper;-D Excellent recipe!

      It’s so hot out today, we’re making this one to avoid heating up the kitchen.

      Instead of potatoes, I’m using radishes instead (about 2 pounds), that way the recipe is Keto friendly. I also use chicken stock instead of water and add the Bay leaf (remove before serving!)

      2 lbs of fresh green beans, cut into pieces
      2 lbs of ham, diced
      2 pounds Radishes, washed, ends removed and halved
      1 medium Vidalia or red onion, diced
      1 bay leaf (optional)
      Put everything in the crockpot, add 2 cups of chicken stock and season to taste with pepper about 2-3 teaspoons for us!
      Salt as well.

      put on low for about 4 hours, Add salt and pepper to your taste preference just prior to serving. Also, if you used the bay leaf, remove it.
