This Cheesy Ham and Potato Soup is simple and DELICIOUS!! It's one of our new favorite soup recipes. { lilluna.com } Super easy to make and full of flavor - potatoes, ham, cheese, scallions, and yummy spices!

It’s no surprise that my family LOVES soup. It’s just something us Lunas have always enjoyed which means, we LOVE trying out and find new soup recipes that we love. For the longest time, we’ve been making this Crock pot Cheesy Potato Soup, because it’s easy and ALWAYS a hit!! I wanted to try another Potato Soup recipe but thought I’d try one for Ham and Potato Soup which I knew would be just as good. I’m happy to report that this soup really is delicious! It takes a little more time than our other Potato soup, but it tastes PHENOMENAL. I asked the hubby which one he liked better and he couldn’t decide since they are both so good! I feel like this one was a little more cheesy and hearty with the ham chunks, so if you love hearty, warm soups, I suggest trying this one.

    Made this with the leftover Christmas ham and it was a HUGE HIT!! Made a huge batch and froze what was left, added corn to half of it for a little added treat 🙂 So simple and so yummy. Thank you!

    Fern Bauman

    Good, hearty soup. I used ham broth instead of chicken bouillon, dried onion flakes, threw in some tasty corn, garnished with fresh parsley. Good way to use leftover Christmas ham and broth! Made a big pot and will freeze leftovers.

    So you do not drain off the water used to boil potato and ham, right?

    Amber

    Thanks for the recipe! I added to it by sautéing onions and garlic with the cubed ham before adding potatoes and water. I also used about a cup of stock instead of bullion just because I didn’t have any on hand. Cooked a little longer than recommended for the consistency I wanted, but followed everything else you have here.
    Yum!

    I ate it at the restaurant and enjoyed it. I tried many times but failed. Today saw your guide I learned a lot and drawn many useful things. I believe this time I will succeed. Thanks a lot!
