Crock Pot Ham and Potato Soup

I woke up today just not feeling the best.  I did not make it out of the house not to my brothers party nor to church.  So it was nice to be able to through together this hearty soup from ingredients you most likely have in the pantry.

  • 3-1/2 cups peeled, diced potatoes
  • 2 sticks of celery sliced
  • 1 or 2 carrots sliced
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 cup diced ham
  • 3-1/4 chicken broth
  • ½ t. salt
  • 1 t. pepper
  • 5 T. flour
  • 5 T. butter
  • 2 cups milk


Combine all ingredients except for the last three into the crock pot.


You can change or add to it what you like.  I love celery so I always include it.  I added carrots because there were some sitting in the fridge.  It depends on your family what they will like best.

Set your crock pot on  high for 1 hour.  The switch to low low the next 5.  Continue cooking checking the tenderness of the potatoes.

When the potatoes are nice and soft melt butter in a sauce pan adding milk and flour rotating while continually stirring until thickened.  Just a few minutes.

Gently add the flour mixture to the crock  pot and let marry 15 minutes.

Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Add your favorite topping sour cream, red pepper flakes, I chose cheese and green onions.


It was delicious!

I wasn't kidding about making this asap (I really am!), but dumb question time: is that 3 1/4 *cups* chicken broth?! I'm assuming so, but I really suck in the kitchen, so it's probably 3 1/4 teaspoons or something. ;)
