Reviews for Cheddar Ham Soup
Sort By :
"I read through reviews before making and reading that it had no flavor with just water i cooked the ham bone with a few seasoning and onion making a broth and used it in place of the water giving the soup a nice flavor. I did not use the full 2 cups of cheese. I am giving this recipe a 4 only because i substituted some ingredients so not sure how the real recipe would have tasted."
"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."
"Excellent, loved the recipe. I added more ham as I had a lot left over!"
"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."
"This was fantastic. I substituted corn for peas. I aslo boiled my ham hock for the broth to replace the water."
