Lazy Ham and Potato Soup

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by BogeysMom

I threw this together one morning when I needed to get rid of some leftover ham but didn't have any real cheese or potatoes. It was awesome - my husband and boys ate from it all day and into the night. They didn't even want me to cook dinner - they just kept eating this.

This is good, a simple easy recipe. Great way to use up left over ham and keep it to a simple dinner

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put water, salt,pepper and ham (just use whatever you have left over- amount doesn't really matter) in a large dutch oven and simmer for about an hour.
  2. Add milk, parsley and enough potato flakes to make a soup just less than thick enough to suit you (it will thicken a little more as it cooks).
  3. Add velveeta and simmer and stir til melted.
  4. Stir in sour cream and serve.
