Cheddar Ham Soup

A while ago I was hunting for a recipe to use up some leftover ham. I found this recipe for Cheddar Ham Soup on the Taste of Home website. It was in a issue of their Simple and Delicious magazine.
Since I get that magazine, I’m not sure how I missed this recipe. It is a simple soup to make, and doesn’t require a lot of time. It’s ready in 30 minutes. You’ll love this creamy, cheesy soup.

Cheddar Ham Soup
  • 2 cups diced peeled potatoes
  • 2 cups water
  • ½ cup sliced carrot
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • ¼ cup butter, cubed
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 2 cups milk (I use fat free milk)
  • ¼ to ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 2 cups (8 oz) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed ( I leave these out)
  1. In a large saucepan, combine the potatoes, water, carrot and onion. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in another saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour until smooth. Gradually add the milk, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in cheese until melted. Stir into undrained potato mixture. Add ham and peas; heat through. Yield: 5 servings.
