  1. Place the potatoes into a large saucepan and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the potatoes are tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain off all but 2 cups of the water, then stir in the cream of onion soup, luncheon meat, milk, and Cheddar cheese. Return to a simmer over medium heat, and cook a few minutes until hot. Season to taste with red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper.

Loved it and so did the kids. Couldn't find the onion soup so I used cream of mushroom and it was wonderful.

I thought the broth was creamy, rich and tasty. Other than that it is just potatoes and ham. I think some other added veggies would have been good.

a great recipe to build on. I also didnt have onion soup, so I used mushroom and it came out very yummy. I fried up the spam first for some crunch and also added a couple tablespoons of dried, minced onion, garlic and lots of seasoning salt and fresh ground pepper for flavor. cant even tell that the spam is not ham or bacon!

I'm impressed and amazed and will make it again.

Easy and delicious-will make again. Subbed leftover ham roast for Spam so I didn't have to shop. Leftovers were even better!

I really like this recipe. I did not have any cream of onion soup so instead I used cream of mushroom. I diced a small onion, sauteed it, and added it. I liked the blend of flavors. Next time I will try it with the cream of onion soup to see which way I like the best. I kept the potato skins on. I noticed the recipe didn't specify that, but turned out very tasty!

I have followed this recipe a few times now. I really do like this potato soup dish. I use cream of chicken instead of the cream of onion (Couldn't Find). One of my friends liked it so much that he ate 4 heaping bowls full in one setting.

Delicious!! very cheesy. I used cooked ham cut into strips instead of spam and it was great. I also did not add the water back in until the very end and just a splash so it was very thick soup which is just what I was after.
