Directions
1.
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.
2.
Reduce the heat and add the ham and butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
3.
Over low heat, add the half-and-half and sour cream; keep warm over low heat until serving time.
