The weather has turned really chilly, so much so we had to get out the blanket for the bed and have even had the fire on for a couple of evenings. This is the type of weather that makes us turn to comfort food. So for this ‘soup’er Sunday I’m sharing a recipe for ham and potato soup.
This is a good recipe for using up left over ham and along with potatoes, onions, mushrooms, celery and a cream soup it makes a delicious soup made in the crock pot. As usual I tend to tweak recipes that I find to suit myself, so this is one that I put together myself.
Ingedients: can cream of mushroom soup (or your choice), 4 cups thinly sliced potatoes, 1 cup diced onion, 1/2 cup chopped celery, a few sliced mushrooms, 1 cup chopped carrots, 1 cup cooked ham, water, seasonings to taste
You could add other veggies like peas or beans and change the soup to cream of celery. The choice is entirely up to your taste buds.
Prepare the ingredients and mix in a crock pot. Combine the soup with a can of water and pour over the ingredients Cover and cook on high for 4 hours until soup is bubbly and the potatoes are soft.
It’s thick and chunky and you could even use a fork to eat some of it. Serve with some nice crusty bread or rolls. Comfort food for a chilly day.
