smoked ham n cheese potato soup

Recipe by

A simple yet tasty soup and another great way to use up leftover holiday ham. I used my potato soup recipe (that we eat often) and simply added the ham and cheese. I used a smoked ham which gave this soup a nice smokey flavor. If you don't have smoked ham, you could used a smoked cheese if you want that smokey flavor. Even though I have not added it before, I think broccoli would be a great addition to this soup. Hope you enjoy.

    celery, sliced

    cheddar cheese, shredded (i used sharp)

How To Make smoked ham n cheese potato soup

  • 1
    Add potatoes, onion and celery to a med/large pot; add just enough stock to cover potatoes.
  • 2
    Over a medium heat; cook until potatoes start to get tender. Add ham and cheese. Reduce heat and continue to simmer.
  • 3
    I like to thicken this soup so I make a paste with the flour and cream. Use about 1/4 of cup of the cream to make the paste. Once creamy and no lumps stir in remaining cream; stir this mixture into soup. Continue to cook just until it begins to thicken and potatoes are tender. Don't over cook. Serve with a nice hot buttered crusty roll if desired.
