This is the yummiest soup you will ever make. It's a wonderful way to warm up on a cold day and a great way to use up left over ham. If I don't have leftovers, I get a couple of 1/4 inch slices from the deli and cube it. You won't be able to have just one bowl. Cooking time will vary depending if you use fresh or frozen broccoli. Enjoy!

Sorrie Lue, just finished making your wonderful soup. It's so tasty and easy to make. Only thing I did differently was to zap the fresh broccoli for a few minutes before putting it in the soup. I assumed that it was whipping cream that you were referring to. Yum!

I loved it! Used it really to feed some friends make use of what was in fridge... Doubled nicely - used a fresh onion which I sauteed in the butter before the flour. Proceeed otherwise as written - you did mean whipping cream? That's how I interpreted. We really enjoyed this! Thank you Sorrie L. for a great soup recipe!

Wonderful! Wonderful! I doubled this recipe using freshly chopped broccoli, about 1 3/4 cup of freshly chopped sweet onions, deli black forest ham, and heavy cream. This soup is really awesome and I know I will be requested to make it again soon! I am so glad I discovered it before the cold weather hits because I know I will be making it a lot. Thank you, Sorrie Lue!
