Any one else have left over ham they don't know what to do with? Well, I did, until I made this yummy soup! I was feeling like Ham and Potato Soup this afternoon. It's a balmy -2 today, (YES NEGATIVE 2,) and wanted something warm for lunch. I knew I had leftover ham in the fridge and making a soup would be a sinch!
Well, I was feeling a little lazy when it came to peeling and dicing the potatoes thinking, "Man, that will take FOREVER!" Then I thought, "Hold the phone, I totally have cubed hash browns in the freezer! SCORE! I'll use those!"
This basically has 6 ingredients in it and makes a full pot. Not to mention it only took about 20 minutes TOTAL to make! OH YES!
Lazy Leftover Ham & Potato Soup
1 Small Onion - diced
24 oz. Bag Frozen Cubed Hash browns
2 c. Leftover Ham - cut into cubes/bite sized pieces
6 c. Milk
3 T. Green Onion - chopped
2 T. Chicken Bouillon (I would have used ham base, but didn't have any. This was a great substitute!)
In a large pot place 1 T. Olive oil and Diced Onion.
Saute' for 3-4 minutes or until the onions begin to turn transparent.
Add frozen Hash brown cubes, Leftover Ham, Green Onion and Bouillon.
Simmer for 15-20 minutes.
Salt and Pepper to taste.
This is the season of giving!
Throw some of this simple soup in a quart sized jar and give it to a neighbor, widow or friend.
