Potato and Ham Soup

If you've got leftovers from your Smithfield spiral ham, this simple, hearty soup will do them justice -- and can even be prepared in your slow cooker.

Recipe from Smithfield
Shop Kitchen ▾
  • 2 cups of Smithfield Ham (any ham will work except Smithfield Country Ham, which is too salty), cut into small pieces
  • 5 pounds Russet baking potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
Place the potatoes in a large pot and add enough water to just cover the potatoes (too much water will make the soup too thin). Cover and bring to a boil, then uncover and cook over medium-high heat for 20 minutes.
Reduce the heat and add the ham and butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Over low heat, add the half-and-half and sour cream; keep warm over low heat until serving time.
Serving Suggestions
Serve with warmed Italian bread and salad of mixed greens.
