    Ham and potato soup


    3 medium to large potatoes, diced
    2 cups celery ,diced
    1 lg. onion, diced
    3 slices bacon, diced
    1-½ cups diced ham
    2 cups milk
    2 cans chicken broth
    2 cups water
    5 tablespoons margarine
    5 tablespoons flour
    ½ tsp. thyme
    3 tablespoons chives (dried)
    Salt and pepper to taste
    2 cups grated cheddar cheese (or can use velveeta)

    Place diced bacon in large soup pot and cook until crisp. Add onion, celery and diced potatoes along with chicken broth and water. Add chives, ham, thyme and salt and pepper. Bring to boil and lower to simmer, cook about 30 minutes or until potatoes are done. Mash with potato masher to break up some of the potatoes into small pieces. Meantime, put margarine in saucepan and melt, whisk in flour and milk until white sauce is thickened. Add cheese and melt, stir well and pour into soup pot with rest of mixture….bring to simmer for about 5 min. Serve with cornbread muffins with honey butter….YUM YUM
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    UMM UMM GOOD. We make ours much the same - but add a grated carrot for color, add rivels, chopped green onions to sprinkle on & leave out the cheese. Instead we serve with cheese toast. Potato soup is one of our favorite meals. Sometimes we have homemade ham salad sandwiches instead of the cheese toast.

    Ham and Potato Soup

    This is similar also and is THE VERY BEST soup that I have EVER had and I have made a ton of different ones. It says that it serves 8---well, it served 3 at my house. We all went back for more.


    Serves 8

    3.5 c. Peeled and diced potatoes
    1/3 c. Chopped celery
    1/3 c. Chopped onion
    3/4 c diced cooked ham
    3 and 1/4 c. Water
    2 Tbsp. Chicken bouillon granules
    1/2 tsp. Salt
    1 tsp. Pepper
    5 Tbsp. Butter
    5 Tbsp. Flour
    2 c. Milk

    Combine potatoes, celery, onion and ham with water in stockpot. Bring to boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender (10-15 mins). Stirs in bouillon and salt and pepper.

    In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Wisk in flour with fork and cook stirring constantly until thick. (1 min). Slowly stir in milk...continue stirring (med low heat) until thick (4 - 5 mins).

    Stir the milk mixture into stockpot and cook soup until heated through! Serve with cheese (I melt some cheese in in the last few mins)!

    Both recipes sound great--it's a favorite warm me up soup in the winter. Last time I made it I added some leftover squash--about 1 c or so. It mixed in with the soup and turned the soup a warm mellow yellow color. Did not have a 'squashy' taste but certainly added a great flavor to a good soup. Squash is full of vitamin A and you can sneak in some extra nutritional value at the same time.
