This is the greatest. Start of doubling the recipe because you will want more right away.

We love this soup!! Thank you for posting. I, too, didn't use milk and just used the water that the potatoes cooked in, for the desired nutrients. It was still very creamy. I added all the other ingredients to the potato pot, throwing in some extra veggies as well (diced green bell pepper and frozen peas). Like some of the other reviewers, I also used creamed corn instead of regular, fat-free instead of regular mushroom soup, EVOO instead of butter, and some low fat shredded cheese to top it. I added a little cayenne pepper for kick too. This soup was a big hit! I'm sure I'll be making this over and over again. :)

I used skim milk and reduced fat cream of mushroom soup and it was still creamy and delicious! Thank you for sharing, I really enjoyed this.

i made a double recipe thinking i could have leftovers for lunch the next day. 4 people ate it and it never saw the fridge! easy peasy to put together and absolutely delicious. I added a bit more potato, milk and a handful of shredded carrots to use them up. Thanks for an easy recipe that tastes like it took all day!

Great recipe for leftover ham. Delicious & easy. I also added celery, but also added fresh parsley & a few shots of hot sauce at the end.

My family loved this. It was so easy to make. I followed most of the recipe, but added celery as someone else recommended. I wanted a little more soup than it made, so I added a little more of each thing and a can of cream of celery. I also used raw potatoes and browned them a little in the butter with the onions. I was so pleased with the taste. The ham was definatley a strong flavor in this. Thank you for posting this. It was easy to follow, but also easy to alter for my family.

This recipe was really easy and tasty. I was afraid with such few ingredients, it wouldn't have any taste, but it was great. I had to let it cook down a bit so that it would be thicker, but I didn't add a thing. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for sharing this great recipe! I did make some changes to use up my Easter leftovers~ I boiled the ham bone and used some of the water and I added my mashed potatoes (2 1/2 cups)instead of the cream of mushroom soup. Other than that, I followed your directions and it is great!
