ham and potato soup

Ham and Potato Soup from the Farmhouse Table

We love to use leftover ham and make this cheap and easy ham and potato soup!  A whole or half of a ham is a GREAT value when you plan to get several meals from it.  We love ham and all of the CHEAP and EASY meals that can be made with the extra ham!


  • 4 cups ham chopped in small pieces
  • 6 large potatoes peeled & cubed
  • 10.75 ounces cheddar cheese soup
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 bag frozen corn can of corn will also work
  • 1/2 cup sour cream garnish
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese garnish
  • 3 Tbsp green onion chopped for garnish


  1. Boil potatoes until they start to become soft.  Drain most water, but retain enough water that potatoes are about halfway covered (about 2 cups water).

  2. Add remaining ingredients to the soup pan.  Bring to boil and reduce to a simmer for 30-40 minutes.  

  3. Serve warm and garnish with sour cream, cheese and chopped green onions
