A delicious way to use leftover ham and a perfect soup for Winter nights! A delicious way to use leftover ham and a perfect soup for Winter nights!
Number of Servings: 12


    7 c. diced potatoes (about 4 medium)
    1 c. diced onion (about 1 medium)
    1 large carrot, chopped
    2 c. ham, diced
    5. c. hot water
    1 Knorr Chicken Bullion cube (extra large size that makes 1 quart broth or 4 small cubes that make 1 cup each)
    1 c. 2% milk
    1/2 c. sour cream
    Salt and Pepper to taste


Add diced potatoes, onion, carrot, and ham to a crock pot. Dissolve chicken bullion in 5 cups hot water, then add this to the crock pot also. Cook on low 7 hours, or high 3 hours. Then add milk and sour cream. Stir and cook an additional 15 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Makes twelve 1-cup servings.

If you'd like a thicker soup, just before adding milk and sour cream, remove 2-3 cups of the potatoes and mash, then return the mashed mixture to the crock pot.

You may also reduce the fat and calories by using reduced fat or fat free sour cream, but I can't get those items in this country, so I used the regular fat version to calculate.

Number of Servings: 12

    This was a great recipe. I added a cup of frozen corn at the end of the cooking process before the milk and sour cream. Instead of sour cream I used Greek Yogurt and 1% milk since I had these ingredients on hand. Great for leftover ham. Thanks for sharing this recipe. My family loved it! - 4/15/12

  • Awesome! Had some leftover ham gravy which I used to substitute 2 cups of bouillon. Topped with chopped green onions and fat free cheddar cheese it was a big hit! I also didn't add the carrot, just seemed like a strange ingredient. - 12/26/11

  • Awesome! My picky four year old who hates potatoes had TWO bowls! Only thing I will change next time is to use more potatoes or less water because we had lots more broth than filling. But YUM! - 10/23/10

  • Great on a chilly day. I added one cup of celery, used ham bouillon and a bit of seasoning salt instead of chicken bouillon, and finished with a liberal dash of cayenne. Yummy! - 1/14/10
