I've been coming across this recipe for years as one of allrecipes top rated but I'm not a big ham fan. Then randomly was in the mood with the rainy cold weather yesterday. I wish I'd made it sooner!!! Quite possibly the best soup I've ever had!
I bought pre-diced fully cooked ham (in the refrigerated section near the Bob Evans sides) and used the entire 2 cups (I'm feeding a 30 yr old man and 14 yo teenage boy lol). I used petite red potatoes and just cubed with skin left on. We like thicker, heartier soup so I think I probably used about 2.5 lb potatoes, approx 1 cup diced celery, 1/2 large onion, and 2 cups sliced carrots. I add extra water as needed and used 2 packets chicken bouillon. When I made the rue I also upped those ingredients slightly to compensate for increase in veggies and keep flavor on target. No extra salt needed and I always love to add white pepper to dishes :-) This was so amazing. Ready for batch 2 already!!
