Ham and Potato Soup

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! Today I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes- my Ham and Potato soup. We had this for dinner last night- it’s a great way to use up those Thanksgiving leftovers. It’s a very filling, creamy, stick-to-your-ribs kind of meal.

Ham and Potato Soup

  • 1 cup diced ham
  • 4 cups diced potatoes(I peel mine- but if you prefer not to skin on will do)
  • 3/4 cup diced celery
  • 3/4 cup finely diced onion
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups milk(I use whole milk but low-fat milk works fine)
  1. Combine your diced potatoes, celery, onions and ham in a large pot with the 3 cups of water. Bring it to a boil and boil for 15 minutes.


2. Add the bouillon powder, garlic salt, and pepper.

3. In a separate, smaller pot, melt the 5 tablespoons of butter. When melted add the flour and whisk over low heat for about a minute.



4. Add the milk slowly to flour butter mixture. Whisk frequently over medium heat for 5 minutes or until mixture thickens.



5. Pour flour/butter/milk mixture into the pot with the potatoes/ham. Stir to combine.



6. Enjoy!



This makes a pretty big pot of soup- I’d say it could feed four or five hungry adults. It’s the perfect meal on a cold evening. If you try it out, I hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by!
