Ham and Potato Soup


This Ham and Potato Soup is wholesome goodness in a bowl. I adore this comfort food as it combines two of my favorite things – soft, fluffy potatoes and salty ham. I love to make a big batch of this soup when I have leftover cooked ham. It’s a great way to use up leftovers and tastes delicious too.

Sauté onion, carrots and celery in melted butter. Add potatoes and ham followed by garlic and flour to thicken the soup. Pour in stock and bouillon and bring the soup to a boil. Pour in milk and stir until the soup thickens. Season and serve.

Great and easy recipe to follow. Very tasty, thx.

Ellianna Turnbow

Ham was really slimy and kinda gross, decided to leave the meat out the second time making this and it was still really good without it!

Dalia Dailey

Very easy and fast to make, actually one of the fastest homemade not from the box soups I've ever cooked.

Melinda Heeg

Ate it cold and it was super yummy nonetheless, going to say that you should probably add cheese though and a little sourcream, really good.

Briar Dibitetto

Added some adobe spice in this to flavor it up a bit and a drop of hot sauce, was reallly good, if you like a kick I recommend doing the same.

Maren Lepre

Love this soup just as much as the creamy mushroom soup, had it with some black bread, wasn't hungry after so it's good as a meal on it's own.

Azalea Labhart

Easy, filling and great for the kids. Perfect soup for a lazy single-mom like myself, lol!

Kataleya Kuhlers

Stuck like glue to this website, it's become my life-line for recipes, love everything on here, including this soup and the Garlic roasted potatos.

Wren Soscia

Hubby really like this soup so going to be making it again for sure, thanks so much.

Audree Savich

Goodbye pre-made soup! Hello healthy lifestyle! Love this site so much and had to bookmark instantly because of how simple all the recipes are, going to be coming back a LOT.

Monroe Pierini

Didn't bother with the milk since I am lactose and I don't like lactose free milks taste. But this was still creamy and delicous in the end.


Well done! Verified!
