I experimented today with Ham and Potato soup the best thing was it cost me nothing, I only used what was in the house and it didn’t cost me anything extra. It was also easy to do and since I was sick today it was perfect.

Serves 6

I love getting Ham and Potato soup when I go out to eat and went on the search for an easy recipe. Most of the recipes I found used ingredients I don’t keep on hand. I decided to step out on my own and just use what I had so it wouldn’t cost me anything.


  • Ham bone with ham on it – leftover from dinner a few days ago
  • 12 medium sized potatoes – bought at the beginning of the month and almost out of life
  • 4 cups water
  • 3 Tbsp chicken bouillon base
  • 2 1/2 cups of milk – I used whole milk because I had some for my Father-In-Law but mixing up some powdered milk would work as well. This is normally what I do since we don’t drink milk.

In Crockpot put Ham bone, water, bouillon base, and potatoes (peeled and cut into chunks). Cook on high for 4-5 hours.

Before serving pull out ham bone and clean all meat off the bone and return to crockpot.

Pour in milk slowly and mix with hand mixer on medium till it is the texture you are looking for. (This is something you can have your kids help with, my son had fun)

To make it thinner you can add more milk or to make it thicker less milk. My family decided by tasting that this was the consistency they liked.

Serve into bowls and eat as is or top with cheese, onions, or bacon.

    I love scalloped potatoes and ham as well as a BBQ ham skillet dinner that is a nice way to use up leftover ham.

  2. Amanda Heusted says

    I make turkey and stuffing bites with leftover turkey and ham and bean soup with leftover ham. Definitely going to try this!!

  3. Sharon Schoepe says

    I use some of the leftover ham for ham and cheese omelets. I also add diced ham to scalloped potatoes for a really yummy casserole.

    Leftovers this year are from brunch, so lots of quiche and breakfast casserole. Just re-heat and eat. This recipe looks awesome. I’m definitely going to try it out!

  5. Meloni Cutberth says

    We have a family recipe for ham and homemade noodles that my whole family loves so I use whatever meat we have (ham,turkey,roast…)and make it with the noodles. Always a hit!!

  6. Stephanie Oladell says

    You can also add cream of mushroom, and sour cream to the potato soup to give it a creamier taste. I do it every time I make it… Some times I add ham, sometimes kielbasa sausage..

  7. Barbara Kesterson says

    We usually have turkey for a few day. It starts out as turkey roll ups, turkey sandwiches and or turkey stir fry. Then by the end of it it’s turkey rice or turkey noodle soup. Yours looks so good now I’m hungry.

    With ham, we just make ham biscuits. But with left over turkey, I make a turkey casserole (which is my youngest daughters favorite). It uses turkey, minute rice, cream of chicken soup, and french’s fried onions. So simple, yet very yummy!!!

    I absolutely Love using my crockpot for leftover pot lucks! Especially when we have leftover chicken, there are so many things you can do with it! My family really loves the homemade chicken soup that I make in the crockpot. So simple to make (but I’ll never let them know that!) Just keep them loving my cooking LOL
