This is a delicious recipe for ham and potato soup that a friend gave to me. It is very easy and the great thing about it is that you can add additional ingredients, more ham, potatoes, etc., and it still turns out great.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 ½ cups peeled and diced potatoes
  • 1 cup diced cauliflower
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • ¾ cup diced cooked ham
  • ⅓ cup finely chopped onion
  • ⅓ cup diced celery
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • 4 cups water, or as needed to cover
  • 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
  • ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Combine potatoes, cauliflower, corn, cooked ham, onion, celery, and garlic in a large soup pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and cook until potatoes are tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir chicken bouillon, salt, and white pepper into mixture.
  2. 2 Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat; whisk in flour to make a paste. Cook for 1 minute and gradually whisk milk into flour mixture until smooth. Continue cooking until thick, 4 to 5 minutes, whisking often.
  3. 3 Stir milk mixture into soup and cook until heated through, 5 to 10 minutes.

Chef's Notes

Bouillon can be broth you have prepped ahead and frozen, and garlic needs to be fresh if you can.


  1. My partner liked it a bit more than I did. Both thought too much pepper - I'll cut amount in half if I make again. Substituted broccili for cauliflower and used a sweet potato as part of potato amount.
  2. I'm rating this off the original recipe but including my additions which were minor. This was really good. I did use chicken broth in place of the water as others have done. The only other thing I did differently because the ingredients seemed kind of bland is I added a 1/2 tsp of basil 1/2 - Read more ...
  3. Sautéed veggies (onion garlic celery carrots) in butter added cauliflower and potatoes with 32 oz of chicken broth and let it cook for about 30-45 minutes. Used immersion blender. Added ham and bacon bits with 2 cups of half and half and let simmer until someone yelled for supper. No need for flour to thicken. - Read more ...
  4. Very easy to make hearty delicious soup. Thank you for the recipe.
  5. Delicious--this is very similar to another recipe Delicious Ham and Potato Soup except for the addition of the cauliflower and corn. I didn't try the cauliflower as I didn't have any. I have used the other recipe on this site and it too is delicious--I loved the corn addition and will use it in the - Read more ...
  6. Great soup for a cold winter supper. Chose this recipe over others on the site because of the cauliflower and when I went to the grocery store they were sold out of cauliflower! Since the soup was short a vegetable I added diced carrots. Omitted the salt reduced the garlic to one clove added sliced - Read more ...
  7. This was great and went over well during a football game party. Minor changes..I doubled the recipe and sauteed all of the vegys (except corn and potatoes) until tender and then used an immersion blender to puree half of the vegys once it cooked in the liquid for a while (potatoes cooked through) and only - Read more ...
  8. My boyfriend and I really enjoy cooking and this was such a fun easy meal to prepare together. Since the holiday season was recently upon us there has been an over abundance of HAM in both our families dinners. I hate to be wasteful so I started off my day with a traditional English brekkie - Read more ...
  9. This was my third time making this addictive soup. The only thing differentwas I added kraft shredded cheese with cream cheese.Awesome s
  10. Very nice recipe. I cooked a meaty ham bone from the freezer in the crockpot overnight and used the broth from that in place of the water and chicken bouillon. I kind of reserved the method. I cooked the potatoes in the ham broth in a large sauce pan. I cooked the onion celery garlic - Read more ...
