Baked Potato and Ham Soup


I know that you won’t have ham leftovers until next week but I just had to share this recipe so you can be prepared when the leftovers are piling up. Another great option is if you are baking potatoes, cook a few extra and make this soup the next night.

Baked Potato and Ham Soup

¼ c. butter
¼ c. flour
14 oz can chicken broth
1 can evaporated milk
3 large or 4 med. Baked potatoes cut into cubes
1 Tbsp Garlic Powder or to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
1-2 cups ham chunks
Grated cheese (optional)

  1. Melt the butter in medium saucepan. Whisk in flour and you should get a thick paste.
  2. Add chicken broth,  milk, and garlic powder.  (We are big garlic lovers so I like to add a LOT)
  3. Mash the pulp from one of the potatoes and whisk into the soup.
  4. Bring to a boil and gently add the cubed potatoes and cubed ham.
  5. Sprinkle cheese on the top of the soup when serving. 

We love this soup. Whenever we have a ham, we make sure to freezer the leftovers for this soup. Sometimes I will even buy a ham steak if we don’t have any leftovers in the freezer. Try it, I don’t think you will be sorry.

 Bon Appetit!
