    Now that fall is here all I want for dinner is soup! There’s nothing that taste better than warm soup on a cold day. Creamy potato and ham soup is by far my favorite kind. I had some leftover ham last week and decided to put it to good use. ;)

    I’ve been looking for the perfect potato soup recipe for years and it is hard to find. I’ve played around with this recipe quite a bit and the truth is… the half and half makes all the difference. It definitely takes this soup out of the “low-fat” category… but it really is what makes this creamy potato and ham soup delicious!

    • 4 potatoes (peeled and diced)
    • 1/3 cup diced onion
    • 1/3 cup diced carrots
    • 1/3 cup diced celery (or peas)
    • 3 1/2 cups water
    • 1 cup diced ham ( I used leftover honey baked ham, but a steak ham works great too)
    • 3 cubes chicken bouillon
    • 3/4 tsp kosher salt
    • 1/2 tsp pepper
    • 1 clove garlic (minced)
    • 5 tbsp butter
    • 1/3 cup flour
    • 1 cup milk
    • 1 cup half and half


    1. Combine potatoes, celery, onion, ham , carrots and water in a stockpot. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are soft. Next, stir in the chicken bouillon cubes, salt and pepper.

    2. In a separate pan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Stir in flour with a fork, stirring constantly until thick ( about 1 minute). Slowly stir in milk and half and half with the fork. Next add in minced garlic and continue stirring over medium-low heat until thick.

    3. Pour the flour mixture into the stock pot and stir until combined. Serve with shredded cheese on top. Enjoy!
