Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
January 23, 2006

My dad gave me this huge ham last week and I have been looking for any recipe that has ham in it. I tried this one yesterday and converted it to a crockpot recipe. I LOVE my crockpot and use it constantly! I sauted the onions in a little vegetable oil until soft, added all the ingredients except the butter/flour and milk to the crockpot and cooked all day until the potatoes were nice and soft. I also added one diced carrot. About an hour before dinner I made the rue with the flour and butter and used a 12 oz. and 5 oz. can of evaporated milk instead of regular milk. I don't like to use regular milk in crockpot recipes because it sometimes curdles on me. I added about a 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder to the soup, it just seemed like it needed a little something when I tasted it before serving. Topped each bowl of soup with fresh ground pepper and sliced green onions. This soup is rich, thick and creamy. Very hearty and filling, perfect for a cold winter night meal! My family really enjoyed this served with a homemade cheesy garlic pizza.
