"I made the recipe up with leftovers I had one day. It's a ham and potato based soup with leeks, onions, rosemary, cream, bacon, and carrots. The ham and bacon give this soup a smoky taste while the cream gives it a rich texture. Chowder is better served the next day."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This was great! I was browsing for a recipe for my leftover Christmas ham, and I just happened to have all the other ingredients on hand (even a leek!) The only thing I modified (besides using a little less of most of the veggies and bacon than the recipe called for, but only because I didn't have on hand as much as the recipe called for) was to follow the other's advice for cutting down on the rosemary. I use crushed rosemary, and two teaspoons was plenty...still had the flavor, but it wasn't overpowering at all. I had enough to feed five of us tonight, and froze the other half for another cold night when I don't have time to cook. This is a keeper!
This recipe called for way too much rosemary. When I made it, I halfed it and it still tasted too strong. The rest of the ingredients went fine together. Maybe using a 1/4 of the amount of rosemary would make it more desireable.
This is one tasty chowder! I used 1% milk and thickened to my liking with potato flakes after being refrigerated for 1 day so that I could skim the excess hardened fat. I added some dried parsley just to add a touch of green to the dish. This tastes so good after the flavors fully meld after a day or so that it will be a great meal to make on the weekend and enjoy on a busy work night!
This recipe is awesome! Easy to make, aromatic, flavorful, and better the second day than the first! I shredded the carrots instead of dicing them, and they really added color all through the dish. Only thing missing was some fresh ground pepper, which was easy to fix. I will certainly be making this again, it was a hit with my whole family. Sprinkle a little bacon and chredded cheddar on top, and YUM!
This was a fabulous recipe, and I was able to use my beautiful new red Le Creuset dutch oven too that I received for Christmas! Leftover Christmas ham was perfect, I used a honey baked ham instead of the country ham, and added leftover mashed potatoes with the heavy cream for more of a creamy kick. My boyfriend and I will be freezing the bulk of it to enjoy in the coming months. Wonderful recipe, and a fabulous way to use those Christmas leftovers.
Delicious, delicious, delicious.
Ok, so I'm giving it 5 stars even with a change. However, the only change I made was to the rosemary. I used fresh, about 2 tsp, and it was great. I enjoy the taste and smell of rosemary. Some don't like it too strong. Use some of your sense and use to the strength you prefer. I might even use more next time.
This recipe makes enough to freeze some or to serve to a large party.
This chowder was so very delicious and rich, not a light soup. I will use this recipe over and over. I thought it had a nice velvety thickness, though it was a little thinner than chowder. If I wanted to thicken I'd try mashed potatoes or a little flour.
It's great the next day, the leeks/onions seem like a lot but they work beautifully.
I also used my homemade turkey stock as a base. I'm passing this one along.
Best soup I have ever made! I wouldn't change a thing. If you like full flavor, then this soup is for you... I did freeze some of it because it does make a lot. It turned out just as good after it was frozen.
This is a very tasty and hardy soup! The smokiness of the bacon and ham was complemented well by the rosemary. I was concerned that the amount of leek and onions may be overpowering, but they balanced the soup nicely with their sweetness. Excellent use of leftover ham. Thanks for sharing!
