Ham and Potato Soup 

Straight from Allrecipes, with very few modifications, this soup was DELICIOUS and really hearty. 


  • 3 1/2 cups peeled and diced potatoes
  • 1/3 cup diced celery
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1.5 cups diced cooked ham
  • 3 1/4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk


  1. Combine the potatoes, celery, onion, ham and water in a stockpot. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. 
  2. Stir in the chicken bouillon, salt and pepper.
  3. In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. 
  4. Whisk in flour with a fork, and cook, stirring constantly until thick, about 1 minute. 
  5. Slowly stir in milk as not to allow lumps to form until all of the milk has been added. 
  6. Continue stirring over medium-low heat until thick, 4 to 5 minutes.
  7. Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, and cook soup until heated through. 
  8. Serve immediately.
