Delicious Ham and Potato Soup


This ham and potato soup is so tasty and is one of my favorite comfort food on a cold rainy day like today. A friend of mine came over for lunch today and I served this soup with my favorite tuna melt sandwich. It made a simple and delicious lunch.



PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOKING TIME: 45 minutes

4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
1/3 cup celery
1/3 cup finely chopped onions
3/4 cup diced cooked ham
3 1/4 cup water
2 tbsp chicken bouillon granules
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
5 tbsp butter
5 tbsp flour
2 cups milk

DIRECTIONS:
1. Combine potatoes, celery, onion, ham, and water in a stock pot
2. Bring to boil, and cook at medium heat until potatoes are tender (10-15 mins)
3. Add salt, chicken bouillon, and pepper
4. In a separate sauce pan, melt butter over medium low heat. Whisk in flour. Cook and stir constantly for about 1 minute. Slowly stir in the milk to prevent lumps. Continue stirring until it thickens (about 10 minutes).
5. Stir in the milk mixture into the stockpot and cook the soup until heated through (about 20 minutes).
6. Serve hot.
