Directions for stove top or slow cooker:
Place bacon and onion in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until bacon is evenly brown and onions are soft. Drain off excess grease.
2
Transfer the bacon and onion to a dutch oven or slow cooker, and stir in ham, kielbasa/sausage, chicken broth, water, potatoes, salt, dill weed, and pepper.

If making on stove top, cover, and simmer in dutch oven until potatoes are done, about 30 mins, stir occasionally. In slow cooker, cook on Low 6 to 7 hours, stirring occasionally.

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and half-and-half. Stir into the soup along with the evaporated milk. If making on stove top, cover and simmer gently until thickened, about 15-20 mins. In slow cooker, cover, and cook another 30 minutes before serving. Add toppings to individual servings, if desired. Serves 10
