Ham & Potato Soup {recipe}


I needed some soup to warm me up the other day.. plus I just feel like the weekend is a good time for crock pot cookin'.. less time in the kitchen, and more time spent with family.  This is definitely a keeper.  My husband is not much a soup eater, but ate it anyway.. what a trooper.  ;)  I told him he better get used to it because the winter is my favorite time to eat soup.. and I love me some soup.  I changed it from the original recipe just a little.. I added one more chicken bouillon cube, to give it more flavor.  After I served myself some, I also added just a little bit of shredded cheddar cheese on top.  Because I like cheese.  :)

We'll be eating this again!

Ham & Potato Soup
adapted from WW Recipes
  • 7 c. diced potatoes (about 4 medium)
  • 1 c. diced onion (about 1 medium)
  • 3 large carrots, chopped
  • 2 c. ham, diced
  • 5. c. hot water
  • 5 small chicken bouillon cubes
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1/2 c. sour cream
  • Garlic powder, salt, & pepper, to taste
  • Shredded cheddar cheese, optional

Add diced potatoes, onion, carrot, and ham to a crock pot. Dissolve chicken bullion in 5 cups hot water, then add to crock. Cook on low 7 hours, or high 3 hours. Then add milk and sour cream. Stir and cook an additional 15 minutes. Add seasonings to taste.  Sprinkle a little cheese on top if you want.

If you'd like a thicker soup (which I did), just before adding milk and sour cream, slightly mash the potato mixture.

Makes approximately 12 1-cup servings.
