Pork pairs well with other ingredients, especially for these ham soup recipes, including corn chowder, ham and bean soup, ham and potato soup, sausage soup, ham and lentil soup, ham and split pea soup, ham chowder and more.
Chock-full of ham and broccoli, this flavorful soup is sure to warm spirits on a cool day. Add buttermilk biscuits and a simple spinach salad topped with bottled Italian dressing. Or, bake up golden corn bread muffins and open a can of fruit cocktail to complete this memorable meal.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
This recipe is one of my family's favorites. The chowder is chock-full of potatoes, ham and carrots. I like to make this comforting soup at least once or twice a month during the fall and winter. —Jennifer Trenhaile, Emerson, Nebraska
For a different spin on traditional split pea soup, try this recipe. The flavor is peppery rather than smoky, and the corned beef is an unexpected, tasty change of pace. —Barbara Link, Alta Loma, California
"I came up with this soup after I had tried something similar at a restaurant," explains Stacy Bockelman, California, Missouri. "Using chicken bouillon and frozen hash browns makes it easy to fix. It's good with sourdough bread," she adds. It's also good for your pocketbook at only 47 cents a bowl.
Here's a real gem! After tasting a similar soup at a popular restaurant in the Twin Cities, I came up with my own version. Everyone who tastes it says it's wonderful. Adding the almonds at the end gives the soup a fun crunch.
