Delicious Ham & Potato Soup!

This is inspired by one of the highest ranked and reviewed recipes from allrecipes.com!  Once we tried it, we knew that this is one of the best soup recipes ever! The only modifications we made was to cut out excess salt and reduce butter by a tablespoon.  This is definitely a recipe doubler!
  • 3 1/2 cups peeled and diced potatoes
  • 1/3 cup diced celery
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup cooked ham
  • 3 1/4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon
  • fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups milk
Combine the potatoes, celery, onion, ham and water in a stockpot. Bring to a boil,
then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir
in the chicken bouillon, salt and pepper.

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 as
not to allow lumps to form until all of the milk has been added. Continue stirring
over medium-low heat until thick, 4 to 5 minutes.

Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, and cook soup until heated through. Serve
immediately.
