I made this last night, it was really good and even better the next day. All of my kids ate it as well. I added a little bit of oregano and basil as well :)

Leftover Hambone Soup
1 leftover ham bone
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, diced
2 carrots, peeled and diced
1 russet potato, peeled and diced
1 cup canned white kidney beans, drained and rinsed
3/4 cup frozen corn kernels
3/4 teaspoon thyme
2 bay leaves
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 1/2 cups leftover diced ham
Place leftover ham bone in a large stockpot or Dutch oven and add enough water to cover the bone halfway, about 6-7 cups. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until very fragrant, about 30 minutes to 1 hour; remove and discard ham bone.
Heat olive oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add garlic, onion, carrots and potato. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions have become translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in ham stock, beans, corn, thyme and bay leaves; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10-12 minutes. Stir in ham until heated through, about 1-2 minutes.
