"This is a delicious recipe for ham and potato soup that a friend gave to me. It is very easy and the great thing about it is that you can add additional ingredients, more ham, potatoes, etc., and it still turns out great."

3 1/2 cups
peeled and diced potatoes
diced cooked ham
finely chopped onion

salt, or to taste
ground white pepper
Very nice recipe. I cooked a meaty ham bone from the freezer in the crockpot overnight and used the broth from that in place of the water and chicken bouillon. I kind of reserved the method. I cooked the potatoes in the ham broth in a large sauce pan. I cooked the onion, celery, garlic and carrot (not called for in the recipe) in the butter. Added the flour and made a roux using 2 cups low fat milk. I added the seasonings to the roux / milk mixture. Once the potatoes were done I dumped them and the broth into the large pot and added the ham from the ham bone and the corn. If you like larger pieces of potato in your soup leave it as it. If you like a smoother more creamy soup, use a potato masher to smash up the potatoes and broth before adding the the creamy vegetable mixture. The white pepper gives the a very tasty finish. If you are sensitive to pepper cut the white pepper back to 1/2 tsp. I garnished the soup with a little grated cheese and diced chives. Served with a crusty bread it made for a wonderful dinner. Thanks for a good recipe, Cara.
This was my third time making this addictive soup. The only thing differentwas I added kraft shredded cheese with cream cheese.Awesome s
I am planning on making this for dinner tomorrow but have a dumb question! Can I use red potatoes ?
My boyfriend and I really enjoy cooking and this was such a fun, easy meal to prepare together. Since the holiday season was recently upon us, there has been an over abundance of HAM in both our families dinners. I hate to be wasteful, so I started off my day with a traditional English brekkie of Bubble and Squeak (which I highly recommend to anyone that has leftover veggies from a roast) and then this delicious meal for dinner. I actually added a bit more flour to the milk mixture because I enjoy thick, hearty soups. We topped off our bowls with shredded sharp cheddar cheese and green onions. This was a fantastic recipe we will definitely use again. Thank you!
Love it!. I ad cheese to mine too.Yummy!
Huge hit with the family ... and my kids friends.
This was great and went over well during a football game party. Minor changes..I doubled the recipe and sauteed all of the vegys (except corn and potatoes) until tender and then used an immersion blender to puree half of the vegys once it cooked in the liquid for a while (potatoes cooked through) and only used half the butter. Super good and easy!
