Potato Ham Soup
Yesterday was the first day of fall! So in honor of that I am posting my recipe for Potato Ham soup. This is a classic dish, very filling and always good!
It's hard to believe that summer is already over. This summer was so hot and miserable you couldn't do anything outside. But fall is here and the weather is gorgeous, hopefully the cold will stay away for a while. Okay, here are the ingredients for the soup.
2 cups diced ham (leftovers are the best)
4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
1 onion, diced
2 stalks of celery, diced
2 carrots, diced
4 cups chicken broth
4 tbsp flour
1 tsp. dried thyme
Salt and pepper
In a large soup pot heat 2 tablespoons of oil. Add the onion, celery and carrots and saute for three minutes. Salt and pepper the vegetables while they are sauteing. Add the potatoes and ham. Add the flour and mix in well. Once the flour has browned a little, pour in the chicken broth and bring to a boil stirring frequently. Add more salt and pepper to taste and the dried thyme. Let simmer on medium heat until the potatoes are soft. At this point you can add a little bit of milk or cream to give it a more creamy consistency. Serve with biscuits or cornbread. I found an awesome cornbread recipe on Pinterest that I used with this. Here it is.
And, here is the finished product. I hope you try this and I hope you enjoy it! Happy Fall Y'all!
