This is soooo yummy! We had quite a bit of ham left after Easter, so I made 1 1/2 times the recipe for the broth. It's so creamy and wonderfully delicious. Can't wait for the next ham dinner - just so I can make it again! The ultimate comfort food! Thanks for the incredible recipe.

I was looking for an alternative to boring ol'split pea so I gave this recipe a try. I made a few additions though. I added some chopped piemento, an extra 1/2 cup of corn, 1 package of Simply Potatoes hash browns, 1 cup shredded cheddar and several healthy splashes of Tabasco Sauce. This was really delicous and I will make again. Thanks for the idea!!

Aged Cheddar September 10, 2007

We like our chowder a little cheesy, so we made a few changes. Peeled and diced 3 small red skin potatoes, steamed for 5 minute, turned off heat and left pan on burner to cool. Rendered fat from the ham with 3 strips of chopped bacon in stock pot. When the bacon was almost cooked to crispy, added 1/2 cup chopped onion and cooked about 3 minutes, then added 3 cloves minced garlic, cooked for 1 minute longer. Empted the pan into a colander lined with paper towels. Returned the pan to medium heat and deglazed pan with 1/2 cup white wine, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Removed from heat, then added milk and flour per recipe. Returned stock pot to burner over medium heat and began slowing adding ham broth and remaining milk 1/2 cup at a time while cooking until thickened. Added remaining ingredients in the recipe with the contentsof the colander, bring to boil, turned down heat to simmer and cooked 20 minutes. Turned off heat, added steamed potatoes and 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese, cover and let stand 15 minutes. Extremely yummy!

Delicious! I will be making this soup as part of my leftovers whenever I make a ham. My husband thought it would also be good with some potatoes.

This was DELICIOUS!! I added 3 diced red potatoes to cook in the broth; then added about 2/3 cup shredded cheddar to the white sauce before adding everything else. It was 'restaurant good'!

Excellent recipe, so rich and full of flavor. The only thing I did different was to add diced potatoes to the broth as it simmered, as suggested by one reviewer. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. My family requests this all the time now. Thank you!!!
