And that's when I discovered a gorgeous meaty ham bone leftover that was perfect for Split Pea and Ham Soup. This is the perfect soup to put in the slow cooker and let it the peas soften with the ham and all the ingredients.
I found this Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup recipe from the Whole Foods Market website. My notes are in brackets. I've made this twice from the ham dinner leftovers and it is 100% better with a ham bone (rather than diced ham). So much more flavour:
