Easy Slow Cooker Potato & Ham Soup Recipe
Maybe it's the cold winter nights or just the busy holiday season, but I love using my slow cooker for soups and stews this time of year. You can smell the wholesome goodness all day long, and then enjoy the hot bowl of hearty soup at night.
Since I have three young kids, I try to find recipes that I know they will enjoy, too, and this Slow Cooker Potato and Ham Soup is one of our family favorites. I like that I can add whatever fresh (or frozen!) veggies I have on hand and that my kids will gobble it up.
- 4 cups diced potatoes (russet or red)
- 1 can whole kernel corn, undrained
- 1 can cream-style corn
- 1 can evaporated milk
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 1 cup diced ham
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- Any additional optional vegetables you have (green beans, peas, carrots, etc)
- Put all ingredients in a slow cooker. (I usually spray the bottom and sides with non-stick spray first)
- Cover and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours (or 6 to 8 on low).
- Season with optional salt and pepper when you serve.
This makes 6 servings, so many times I will make double because it also freezes well. (And I like having some easy meals for those busy days!)
This is a great recipe to use with left over ham from your holiday meal, but if you don’t have ham, it is also really good with bacon. We have tried it both ways and it is good either way. I usually serve this with crackers or homemade bread – which is always a hit!
