I call this potato soup "rummage" b/c I tend to rummage through the fridge for any leftover pork I have to add to it :) It always ends up delicious!

It's a great cold weather soup!

How to Make Rummage Potato Soup


  1. Cut and boil potatoes. Peel if you like, but I always leave the peel on.
  2. Once potatoes softened, strain from water and put in crock pot. Save 2 cups of potato water.
  3. Add flour, butter, milk, sugar, & cheese to crock pot & stir.
  4. Find meat in fridge. I usually use chopped leftover brisket or breakfast sausage or baked ham. If you don't have these then buy 1 pkg cooked chopped ham & use that. I don't use an exact measurement, it depends on how meaty you want your soup.
  5. Chop & add meat to crock pot & stir.
  6. Sprinkle crushed red pepper & black pepper to taste.
  7. Cover crock pot & cook either on low for 6-8 hrs or high for 3-4 hrs - until cheese is melted through. Check & stir occasionally until done.
  8. If soup is too thick, add saved potato water until it is to your preference.
