Cheddar Ham Soup Recipe

“I knew this recipe was a keeper when my mother-in-law asked for it!” relates Marty Matthews in Clarksville, Tennessee. The hearty soup, chock-full of leftover ham, veggies and cheese, is creamy and comforting. And even though the recipe makes enough to feed a crowd of post-holiday guests, Mary notes, “don’t look for leftovers!”

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 14, 2015

"It doesn't taste much different than can soup. It is ok but I will probably not make it again. It was flavorless. I like the idea of using a rich broth instead of water."

MY REVIEW

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 31, 2014

"I used only half the butter and cheese and it was still delicious. I also used stock instead of water. Even my picky eaters loved it."

MY REVIEW

"This was fantastic. I substituted corn for peas. I aslo boiled my ham hock for the broth to replace the water."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 27, 2014

"Made this it was great. I omitted the flour and butter and added chicken stock and garlic for extra flavour. It wasn't thick but I was going for less gluten. I would definitely make this one again."
