Cheddar Ham Chowder

Cheddar Ham Chowder

David N Angela Ferber

"Delicious, very modifiable chowder. Serve this with a salad and rolls or beer bread. Yum! Consider this a basic recipe that can be modified according to specific tastes and needs. Carrots and celery can be added when cooking the potatoes if desired. Bacon would be delicious in this as well."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Bring water, potatoes, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper to a boil in a large saucepan. Reduce heat, cover with a lid, and simmer until vegetables are just tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat.
  2. Melt butter in a separate large saucepan over medium heat. Stir flour into melted butter until smooth. Gradually stir milk into butter-flour mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  3. Stir cream cheese and Cheddar cheese into milk mixture until melted. Pour potato mixture, including liquid, into milk-cheese mixture; add corn and ham. Cook, stirring occasionally, until soup is heated through, 10 to 15 more minutes.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

This received a rare all family (of 5) approval! Even my pickiest went back for more. I doubled the recipe and based on what I had on hand used both shredded cheese and Campbell's cheesy soup. I...

I'm sorry for the low rating but this was a flop here. It didn't have a ton of flavor & the corn did NOT belong in this. Def would've preferred this as a ham & potato soup without crunchy/chewy ...

Delicious! I followed the recipe, though I did use frozen white/yellow sweet corn, as opposed to canned, and I also prepped both pans (the white sauce and the veg) at the same time on differen...

We loved it! Although, to start off, I always saute my vegetables (potatoes, onions, garlic) in butter. I think it makes the soups taste better. Then I followed the recipe and absolutely loved...

Seriously great!

Made this recipe tonight. It was the easiest and fastest chowder I have made. Substituted laughing cow Swiss cheese for the cream cheese (I didn't have any) turned out great! I will definitel...

My family loved this chowder! I have 5 children 6 years and under, and we ALL liked it. I did leave out the corn though, only because I was not sure if the kids or my husband would like the corn...

We all really enjoyed this chowder! It was a tad thick, so I just added water to thin it out a bit. Other than that, it was a great way to use our leftover ingredients!!

I made this, kids loved it, instead of the flour to thicken, I puréed about a cup of ham with water to thicken the stock.

Everyone in my house love this and that is a rare thing as we have 5 teenagers. my only complaint is it takes a lot longer to prepare due to everything being put in it
