Slow Cooker Ham and Potato Soup

I like potatoes. Do you?

Their versatile, filling and pretty easy to shop for.

My grandma's potato soup was killer.

Now I don't know about where you live but Mother Nature is on crack so we keep having these insane weather patterns.

Hot, cold, hot cold.

So it's hard to know what to cook and when.

Potato Soup seems to keep everyone pleased,especially on a chilly day, even in Spring.

Don't have time to make it when you get home?

No problem.....I've been experimenting and figured out a great way to get it done in your crock pot.

It's super easy and full of flavor.

All you have to do is throw a few things together and boom. 

Dinner is on the table when you get home and you can get your other things done.

I have Iris to divide, Lillies to plant, roses to prune and 2 fields of veggies and cut flowers to plant. I needed something simple and filling that would work for my family.

This is it.


t 15 Baby Red Potatoes - washed and quartered

1 Can Carrots

1 Yellow Onion

1 14 oz. Can Chicken Broth

40 oz. Milk (Vitamin D)




1 tsp. Parsley

2 cups ham diced and cubed into bite-sized pieces

1 Stick Butter

2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese

1 Cup Sour Cream

Wash and quarter the baby potatoes and throw them in the crock pot. Add 1 can of chicken broth and drain 1 can of carrots. Slice and dice 1 ( peeled) yellow onion into bite sized pieces.

Add 1 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. white pepper and 1 tsp. garlic flakes.

Turn on high and cook for 4-5 hours. If you are going to be gone all day cook on low for 8-9 hours.

Check your potatoes and see that they are tender. If they aren't cook a little longer if they are you are ready for the next step.

Add 1 stick of butter and 1 cup of sour cream along with 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese. Add 1 tsp. parsley.

Slice 2 cups of cooked ham and cube them into bite size pieces. Throw that in as well and cook another 20 minutes on high. 

Stir it well. 

Soup will be a little clumpy. That's OK. It's the sour cream.

If you want it thicker add a couple Tablespoons of flour. We don't like ours super thick so this works just great.

Salt and pepper to taste and enjoy. 

Serve along with crackers, rolls , 1/2 a sandwich or side salad.
