Reviews for Ham, Bean and Potato Soup
"Wonderful soup. Had an extra ham shank that I threw in the pot. Used only water. Didn't need any additional seasoning, as the broth was very flavorful. Not a pea person, so skipped those. Watching calories, so skipped butter and used a EVOO spray to saute vegetables."
"This was a great recipe for a cold day. I didn't have celery so I used a can of cream of celery. Very yummy."
"This soup is delicious. I double the recipe."
"husband and I enjoyed"
"Great flavor. My husband isn't a huge fan of beans, but he really enjoyed this. I was in a hurry, so I only added the potatoes for the veggies, and had extra ham so put that in too. I also left out the butter and used chicken bullion cubes to make broth."
"It's a winner! It is easy to make and delicious tasting. Thanks."
"I double the recipe and add cubed turkey. Great soup!!!"
