Ham and Potato Soup

This potato soup recipe is perfection. I added leftover ham from Christmas dinner and it changed it up and gave it a great flavor.

This is a naturally gluten free recipe for Ham and Potato Soup.  It was my Granny’s recipe that I added ham too.  We always serve ham at Christmas so this is a great way to use the ham after the holiday.  It is pure comfort food for me.  Every year I make this and it reminds me of my Granny.  It is like having her with me every time I make it.  I hope you enjoy.

You can make with or without the ham.  You can also make with a 2% or less milk but the soup will not be as rich or creamy, however it will be lower in calories.  For me I like to enjoy it as below. It is comfort in a bowl.

I hope you enjoy this delicious Ham and Potato soup!

  1. Thanks for posting. My husband was given a ham for Christmas and I was trying to think of recipes to use the ham in:) whoo hooo!!!!

  2. I’ve never added ham to potato soup. I just might try it. I think this soup would be even better with some chopped green onions on top. Thanks for the recipe.
