How to Make Potato and Ham Soup


  1. Put the diced potatoes into a large soup pot and add just enough water to cover the potatoes. *Too much water will make the soup too thin*
  2. Cover and bring to a boil, then uncover and cook over med-high for about 20 min.
  3. Reduce the heat and add the ham and butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Over low heat, add the half and half and sour cream. Heat through and enjoy!
