Creamy Ham & Potato Soup – Crock Pot / Slow Cooker

Creamy Ham & Potato Soup in Crock Pot

I am on a soup kick lately. I also want to use up items in my fridge. We had recently baked a spiral ham earlier in the week and wanted to use up some of the ham. You can easily buy ham steak and cut up for this recipe with no issues. Would work just as well. This soup was DELISH!! Kids were fighting to have seconds. The broth was so creamy and yummy. Another winner recipe in this house.

I started with 6 large red potatoes skinned and cut up into approx 1 x 1 pieces

Sliced up one large red onion. You could use smaller we just love onions in this family. If you want to dice them up smaller you could. I may do that next time so I don’t have larger pieces in the soup. Your choice.

2 cups of diced ham and pour in 1 cup of chicken broth. You do not need alot. Just enough liquid to help cook all the yummy ingredients. Onions and potatoes give off quite a bit of liquid when cooking.

Cook on low for 4-6 hours and this is what your soup will look like. Potatoes are all tender (but not falling apart) Onions and celery are tender as well and the smell is heavenly!!

My family really enjoyed this soup. Very satisfying and plenty of meat and potatoes for the man in your house that loves meat and potato dinners.

Some in my family added more cheese to the top of their soup. That is perfectly legal too. :)

It makes quite a bit of soup. Enough for a family of 4 to have for 2 dinners and still left overs for lunch for 2 more folks.  Approx 10 -12 servings.

ENJOY!

    I’ve made this twice now and both x’s fantastic. I tweaked it a bit both x’s to save myself some time as I love to eat, but hate prepping. 1st time I used tiny new red potatoes so I would not have to peel, just cube or slice.The 2nd time I used canned potatoes, adding them at the end with the milk and cheese just to warm them up. I only had shredded cheese and added WAY more cheese, letting each 8oz melt before adding enuff to get it a tad more cheesy and thick. I changed nothing else. Ate with fresh baked Pillsbury french bread loaf. Killer soup!
