Quick and Easy Potato Soup

Who doesnt love a warm soup on a cold day?  This recipe is a potato/ham soup and it's so easy!  If you want to see more recipes from me and from other cooks, feel free to join our facebook group at:  Facebook Cook, Clean and Organize Group

I use ham lunchmeat for this recipe, but any ham will do.  I have even made it with leftover whole ham that I have cut into bite sized pieces, and bacon.  My family loves it no matter what meat I use.  

  • 4 cups cups peeled and diced potatoes
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup diced cooked ham lunch meat
  • 3 1/4 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon chicken bouillon granules

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground white or black pepper, or to taste
  • 1/3 cup  butter
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, and cook soup until heated through. Serve immediately.
