Wow, delicious! This is a pure comfort soup. I made some changes: (1) I used 3 1/4 cups of chicken broth instead of the water/bouillon combo, (2) I added chopped baby carrots to the vegetable medley and then frozen peas about 10 minutes in to the cooking time - I'm trying to put more veggies in our diet, and (3) the ham in the freezer is starting to scare me, so I chopped 5 strips of pre-cooked bacon, put half in the broth and half in the butter while it was melting, before I whisked in the flour. Basically, I added peas, carrots, and bacon. Yummy. :) I'm thinking, too, that the original recipe could be completely VEGETARIAN if (a) one used vegetable bouillon cubes (Maggi) instead of chicken, and (b) one substituted the peas, carrots, and maybe some more veggies suggested by others for the ham: "Delicious Veggie and Potato Soup".
