My first blog entry. Slow Cooker Cheesey Ham and Potato Soup
I have a love affair with my crockpot. I use at least once a week if not more. This soup is a definite comfort food. I served it along crescent rolls and a garden salad.
3 large russet potatoes cut into cubes
3 celery stalks chopped finely
1 medium onion finely chopped
1 teasppon pepper
3 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon salt
6 cups chicken stock
2 cups milk (I used 2 percent)
1 cup shredded cheddar
2 cups cooked cubed ham
Put potatoes, celery, and onion into the crockpot. Toss together with the melted butter, salt and pepper. Cook on high for 90 minutes and then turn to low. Add chicken stock and continue cooking on low for 3-4 hours. Add cubed ham, milk and cheese and cook for an additonal hour. Stir and serve.
The picture does not do this soup justice. It is delicious!
