WOW! WOW! WOW!!! I modified this recipe for a low carb diet and it was fantastic. I can only assume that the fully loaded recipe as written would be out of this universe. The changes I made to make it low carb were: no potatoes (instead I used some cauliflower), no carrot, no flour (and therefore no need for the egg). After adding the chicken stock, I added the broccoli and cauliflower, brought to a boil and then simmered for 15 minutes. Then I added the 4 cups of milk. To thicken the soup, I used another 1/2 cup of milk with 1/4 cup of cornstarch blended together and then slowly poured in before I added the ham and cheese. I brought the pre-ham and cheese mixture to a small boil to thicken. Then added the ham and slowly the shredded cheese to melt it consistently. Also, in the very beginning, I browned the diced ham in the soup pot, removed the ham but let the crusty stuff on the bottom of the pan. Then I added the butter and sautéed the onions and celery, and went on with the recipe. I feel like this is a very decadent meal and I'm not missing out on any flavor at all! Enjoy!!!
