Great way to use leftover ham!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a great basic potato soup that's made even better with the addition of ham. A fantastic use of the leftover holiday ham. Lynne uses the perfect combination of veggies that give this soup a nice flavor without anything overpowering. Potato is the real star of the soup. Blending some of the mixture gives the soup a thicker texture without losing the chunks. It was a wonderful consistency. This soup recipe is creamy and perfect for a cold evening. The Test Kitchen
