Directions

  1. Bring chicken broth to a boil in a large Dutch oven. Add Yukon gold and sweet potatoes, bring back to a boil, and turn heat to medium-low. Simmer until tender, 10 to 20 minutes.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add ham; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add leeks; cook and stir until leeks are soft, about 5-10 minutes. Do not allow the leeks to brown.
  3. Stir leek and ham mixture into potatoes and broth. Add half-and-half; season to taste with salt and ground black pepper.

As written, this is bland. However, this is a great base recipe. If you season it to taste, you can easily make it a 5 star recipe.

I like to add a little more flavor than salt & pepper. So I added a mix of spices. I garnished it with sharp cheddar and tarragon.
