The slow cooker is the perfect way to cook ham and potatoes! So tender and delicious. I always add carrots and green beans. Serve with fresh sliced tomatoes and cornbread and your meal is complete!
If you don't have fresh green beans you can use frozen. I usually use about half the bag of baby carrots and save the rest for snacking on during the week.

4 or 5 potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces (you can use small red potatoes and just cut in half in you prefer)
