Creamy Ham and Potato Soup

"This is a great comfort food in winter. I use Yukon Gold potatoes, but red ones work fine too. It does not take long to make. My two stepsons even ask me to make this in the summer. My three year old even loves it! Great served with cornbread or biscuits. Great for holiday left over ham."

    This was so good and easy to make. This is a new favorite in our house.

    I have made this twice now- the first time I followed word for word- and it was fabulous! My husband wanted me to make it again, and this time I didn't have c ram, so I subbed 1.5 cup milk and .5 cup butter as suggested in the forums. I also added a head of broccoli, finely chopped, and I mashed it more than I did the first time... Oh my goodness did it turn out amazing! We put shredded cheese on top, and it was like loaded mashed potatoes, but more flavorful! This will be a regular!

    My family and I LOVE this soup! I had leftover ham that was smoked on the green egg and it was excellent. I didn't have the Greek seasoning so I used an all-purpose seasoning salt instead. Thanks for sharing!

    This was wonderful! I used my leftover (spiral sliced, honey baked)ham from Christmas dinner and it was perfect for a cold winter night's dinner. I also did not have any Greek seasoning so I substituted Cajun seasoning and lots of pepper (we like our food a little spicy). I also mashed the potatoes a little with a masher before adding the cream although I left it with a "lumpy" texture. I also added a cup of canned corn (drained). I think next time I might add some leeks or celery as well. Thanks so much for the recipe.

    This was excellent. My husband said it was the best potato soup he'd ever eaten (even better than his own mother's!). Thank you for the delicious recipe.
