Just like any good soup, garnishes are key. Be sure you top this Ham and Bean Soup with some delicious crusty bread and some hot sauce. A little spice goes a long way, but really tops off this delicious soup.

(Some people have expressed frustration over me linking to my Mom’s site rather than posting the full recipe here. I usually put the full recipe up (there are over 850 full recipes on the site), but this recipe was special and is 100% hers, so I wanted to link to her instead so you all could be aware of her awesome blog. Hope you understand! Click the link in the paragraph above for the full recipe)

Why is it so very difficult to find the recipe. I like the pictures, but finding how to make it----almost impossible. So how do I find the recipes?
    Becky Hardin
    Hi Barb, almost all of my over 800 recipes on the site have recipe cards at the bottom of each post. There is a print button on each on for a print friendly version. This recipe is special because I was trying to highlight my mom’s blog, so I linked to her rather than putting the full recipe here (which would mean no one would click over to see her recipe, and I wanted to give her full credit. We do this as our full time jobs and the only way to make money is people coming to our actual sites.) I’m sorry you’re frustrated, but this is a free site and is my space on the internet. Please always feel free to email [email protected] if you need help finding a recipe, I can always send a pdf of the recipe. There is a clear link in bold at the bottom of this post with where the recipe can be found: http://www.simplysated.com/classic-ham-bean-soup/ Hope you love the recipe if you try it. Thanks.

I have stopped looking for the recipes. It is too hard to find them and is so annoying . I looked for the ham and bean soup to see if it had gotten any easier, but it has gotten worse! Not worth it!

I can't find a printable version of your ham and bean soup, or for that matte the recipe at all. Just pictures.

    Hey Rose, if you follow the link to my Mom's site you can click "print" on her recipe card for a printable version. Here is a link to that printable version. Enjoy! http://www.simplysated.com/easyrecipe-print/4529-0/
