Yum! I've only found one restaurant in my life that serves what I consider "authentic" wisconsin cheese soup - this recipe came very, very close. I substituted a bit (3/4 cup?) of the chicken broth with beer. That made it almost indistinguishable from the restaurant one that I remember. Thank you so much for the recipe!-21 Sep 2009

Were it not for the green pepper, I would have enjoyed this soup a lot more and rated it even higher. I like green pepper, but it was too prominent in what is a mild-flavored soup. I added 1/2 cup of Guiness Draught, but I don't think that necessarily made this any better - this soup would have been good with or without it. For the record, Hubs disagreed with me on the green pepper thing, even suggesting it only added to the "Green and Gold." (okaaaay...) To ensure the cheese doesn't curdle or separate, remove the soup from the heat before stirring it in, slowly and gradually.-06 Feb 2011


This soup is so good! The only thing that I did differently was to add bacon instead of ham and I also used a little bit more cheese! (I love cheese) Our family makes soup every Sunday for a quick easy dinner. This soup will definately be one of the recipies that we will use often! Thank you!!-16 Mar 2004

Ham and Bean Soup

This recipe comes from my other grandmother, Grandma Baker. I remember having this when I was growing up. It was always so hearty and belly warming. We especially like it with a some ketchup squeezed on the top. Sounds weird but it works, trust me.


  • 16 ounces, weight Dry Great Northern Beans, Soaked Covered In Water Overnight, Then Drained
  • 1 whole Ham Shank Or Ham Hock
  • 2 cups Carrots, Chopped
  • 1 cup Celery, Chopped
  • 4 cloves Garlic Cloves, Chopped
  • 1 Onion, Chopped
  • 1 sprig Rosemary
  • 32 ounces, fluid Chicken Stock
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • Garnish: Fresh Parsley, Chopped


Drain the beans that you soaked overnight. Add all the ingredients into a slow cooker. I start it on high for about 30 minutes to get it going and then turn it down to low for 6-8 hours. Alternately you can cook it on high for 4-6.

When the ham falls off the bone, it’s done. Break up the ham in the soup, remove any bones, and remove the sprig of rosemary (the leaves should have fallen off into the soup). Taste for seasoning and add more salt and pepper if needed. I added fresh parsley before serving.

Ham and Vegetable Soup

Among the many things that my husband Jack and I have in common – we were both taught by our parents to never waste food. So, considering how much food we cook for A Family Feast, we either share leftovers with family and neighbors, or sometimes we freeze some ingredients to use in a future recipe. Such is the case with this Ham and Vegetable Soup recipe!

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been on a mission to cook as much as possible with food from our freezer and pantry. In the bottom of our freezer drawer was a bag of ham stock that Jack had made a couple of months ago from the bone of our leftover holiday ham. We also had a variety of vegetables on hand – onions, celery, carrots, leeks, potatoes, kale – and even a bag of frozen corn kernels in the bottom of the freezer drawer, as well as some Parmesan cheese rinds (which we always save and freeze because they add great flavor to soups)!

So while this creamy Ham and Vegetable Soup started out for us as a way to use up some leftovers – it was so delicious, we had to share it here today!

This soup has a wonderful depth of flavor, and it is loaded with lots of hearty and healthy ingredients. Don’t worry – even if you don’t have some leftover ham stock on hand in your own freezer, we give you the recipe below to make your own delicious ham stock from scratch.

After making this Ham and Vegetable Soup last week, we brought some to share with friends who invited us to visit them for a few days down on Cape Cod. Everyone loved it (and asked for the recipe), and we think you’ll love it too!


lace the potatoes, carrots, turnip, parsnip, celery, and cabbage in the bottom of the crock pot.

Top with the ham bone and remaining vegetables and seasonings.

Add enough water to just cover the ingredients.

Cover the crock pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until the vegetables are tender.

Remove the ham bone from the crock pot and remove the meat. Cut it into small pieces and stir back into the soup (if desired).

Remove the bay leaf, adjust the seasoning if needed (shouldn't need salt with the ham in it) and serve the soup hot.
