Restaurant quality soup that is good year round! I love to make this if I have left over ham, although a ham slice works just as well.

How to Make Cheddar Ham & Potato Soup

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place potatoes, celery, onion, garlic, ham and water in a large soup pot and bring to a boil. Continue to cook until potatoes are soft.
  • 2Stir in chicken bouillon, salt and pepper.
  • 3In separate sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour and continue to cook and stir for 1-2 minutes.
  • 4Slowly, whisk in milk and continue to cook and stir until it starts to thicken, usually 4-5 minutes.
  • 5Add cheese and blend well. Stir the cheese mixture into the stock pot until heated through. I use a potato masher to break up some of the potatoes to make it a little thicker.
  • 6Add parsley flakes or fresh, chopped parsley before serving.
