Slow Cooker Ham and Potato Soup
Potato soup is a comfortable and versatile dish. It can be light enough for a sandwich lunch or hearty enough for a main course with a salad and bread or biscuit.
Top this delicious soup with a tablespoon or two of grated cheese, sliced green onions or chopped parsley.
What you will need:
8 cups russet potatoes, diced
1 yellow onion, diced
2 large carrots, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup chopped celery
16 ounce Cubed Ham 2 packages of packages Smithfield Anytime Favorites™ Cubed Ham
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
1/4 cup flour
4 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 cups heavy cream (you can also use milk – I used whole milk)
½ cup sour cream
How to make it
1 ) Add the potatoes, onion, carrot, celery, ham, Kosher salt, pepper chicken broth to your slow cooker and cook on low 7-8 hours, or high 4-5 hours.
2 ) Using a potato masher, mash about 1/3 of the potatoes (don’t worry the ham won’t really mash that much)
3 ) Add the flour, heavy cream/milk and sour cream and stir everything together.
Cover and cook on high for an additional 15 minutes.
