I found this recipe on-line last year. I can’t remember where. I wasn’t sure my family would like it. Turns out they love it!
I got tickled listening to Dillon “chew” the potatoes and ham. They were so tender that you didn’t need to bite down hard at all. I could hear his teeth hitting together. This “knock, knock, knock” sound coming from his mouth. My Man and I just laughed.
Let’s get to cooking!
- 3 1/2 cups diced potatoes
- 1/3 cup chopped onions
- 3/4 cup diced ham (I used the precooked ham)
- 3 1/4 cups water
- 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (more to taste if you like)
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 5 tablespoons butter
- 5 tablespoons flour
- 2 cups milk
I am going to take the moment to tell you that I thought about taking pictures after I had already started cooking. I do that from time to time. Start cooking and forget all about needing pictures.
Putting It All Together
While dicing and chopping the potatoes, onions and ham, bring the water to a boil. Boil the potatoes and onions until they are tender.
Whisk the milk/flour mixture with a fork over med/low heat until thickened, about 4-5 minutes.
Pour in milk mixture.
We had cornbread with ours. That can cook while you are making the soup. Really good on a cool, fall night.
