We had milk and ham to use, so I came up with this. Richard and I agree this is something that is not the best as a leftover so have people over to eat it. This tastes very rich but is tasty. I hope you like it.

This is, by far, the BEST soup I've ever made! I didn't have leeks on hand, but half a medium white onion chopped worked quite well. The whole family loved it!

This is by far the best leftover ham soup I've made, and I have made quite a few. The taste was wonderful and the thicker broth was a nice change. I made Easy Bread Bowls to serve this soup in and it was a very hearty and filling meal. Thanks for keeper! Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Tag Spring 2013.
