I don't know where I got this recipe, but I love recipes that have ingredients generally on hand. A good use for leftover ham.

Fabulous! I happened to have all the ingredients on hand! What a great recipe to use up all the Easter ham! The flavor in this was really good! My only difference is that I did not use the cheese. The soup was very good! Thanks for posting!
