Creamy Corn and Ham Soup


Today, I have a recipe for you so you will be already to use up that leftover Easter ham. It is a simple ham and corn chowder. The dill is what makes this extra yummy. If you have fresh dill, that would be excellent. If not, dried dill weed works just fine. That is what I used.

If you want even more recipes for easter leftovers, I put together a round up post last year that you can check out. It also includes recipe for those hard boiled eggs.

  • Did it as per the first time found to have an over powering onion taste. Left out onions second time and used cream corn instead, family likes it so much that I have to double the batch now

  • Thank you Laura! I made this one after Easter and the entire family loved it (a rare occasion). Then last night we had some pork so we’re going to dice up the leftovers and try it in this. I hope it turns out good :)
