Cheddar Ham Chowder Recipe

Cheddar Ham Chowder Recipe

I often freeze this soup and thaw it for a fast easy meal. Since it's hearty, all I need to add are rolls or bread and a salad. —Ann Heine, Mission Hill, South Dakota

"Hearty and tasty! The only change I made was I added about a half teaspoon of cayenne pepper to give it more flavor. Will be making this one again."

"Excellent cold weather soup! I did saute the onions, carrots and celery first and, as suggested reduced the salt and increased the vegetables. Great base recipe to expand on and froze well for individual meals."

"Yummy, rich and hardy. I recommend starting with half the amount of salt, because by the time you add the ham and cheese it can be pretty salty."

"I found this recipe [ or a variation of it] years ago in Midwest Living & called Midwest Ham Chowder... I do add 4 X's the onion, & double the carrots & celery & a bit of garlic. Will also add left over veggies [ ie: green beans, broccoli, mexicali corn ] so good & filling. Added note: I cook the butter & flour for just a bit before adding the milk to rid it of the flour taste..... yummy recipe"

"This is our favorite soup. I've made it dozen's of times and served it often at large gatherings. I've used Ukrainian sausage or cooked bacon instead of ham, both work well. We also like adding califlower with the veggies."

"Awesome rainy day soup. I add a little cayenne pepper, maybe a 1/4 tsp. and it adds an additional layer to the flavors. I also puree the vegtables and liquid before adding to the cheese sauce. What a wonderful recipe. Thank you!"
