Creamy Ham and Potato Soup

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! We sure did. The best part was watching the girls opening their presents. They loved every minute of ripping off the paper and then moving on to the next unopened gift. 

By the way, it snowed here 3 days before Christmas and rained the rest of the days so we didn't end up with a white Christmas after all. But it is freezing cold outside and because winter is the best time for soup, I am going to share this most delicious soup recipe with you. Its so quick and easy and totally worth making.

Ham and Potato Soup
Recipe Source:

3 1/2 cups peeled and diced Potatoes
2/3 cup diced Celery
1/3 cup finely chopped Onion
1 cup Carrot, diced
1 can Corn
1 cup diced cooked Ham (buy a ham steak in the deli section)
2 - 14.5oz cans Chicken Broth
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Pepper, or to taste
5 Tablespoon Butter
5 Tablespoon Flour
2 cups Milk

1. Combine the potatoes, celery, onion, carrot, ham and chicken broth in a stockpot. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the 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 so that lumps don't form and 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.

Makes 6 servings
