Number of Servings: 8


    * 3 1/2 cups peeled and diced potatoes
    * 1/3 cup diced celery
    * 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
    * 3/4 cup diced cooked ham
    * 3 1/4 cups water
    * 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
    * 1 teaspoon ground white or black pepper, or to taste
    * 5 tablespoons butter
    * 5 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. Stir in the chicken bouillon, salt and pepper.
2. In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour with a fork, and cook, stirring constantly until thick, about 1 minute. Slowly stir in milk as not to allow lumps to form until all of the milk has been added. Continue stirring over medium-low heat until thick, 4 to 5 minutes.
3. Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, and cook soup until heated through. Serve immediately.

  • I added three chopped carrots, 32 oz chicken stock and put in crockpot on low 6-7 hours. Then added flour butter and milk and heated for about 30 more min sprinkled cheddar cheese on top - 11/2/12

  • My husband and I enjoyed it (and even my picky kids ate some of it). I cut the butter, flour and milk in half and it was still creamy enough. We sprinkled a little shredded cheese over every bowl, and when it melted it was all good. - 12/31/11

  • This soup is the best and easiest I've ever made! My husband is looking forward to the leftovers. I skipped the salt because with a bouillon cube it is salty enough and I used a box of salt free, free range chicken broth instead of water. - 3/1/11

  • We loved it! I used left over ham from Easter dinner, added some carrots, left out the salt, and it was perfect. Will definitely make it again. - 3/26/08

  • I did make this, and added a few things. I doubled the recipe added carrots and spices. I also used left over mashed potatoes to thicken instead of making the gravy with flour and butter,. It tasted great! Great for a chilly night. - 12/30/07

  • This was wonderful. Don't add the 1/2 tsp of salt until you taste the soup, because the bouillon and the ham add a lot. But I will definitely make this again. Thanks for the recipe! - 12/6/07
