Ham and potato soup is one of those recipes I make when I have absolutely no clue what to make, since I typically always have potatoes and ham of some kind on hand. It is delicious, very easy to make, and very filling. All of which are important for our family.

With just a few simple ingredients, this is a recipe that the whole family will enjoy.

This classic soup is sure to become a family favorite recipe!

We like to serve ham and potato soup with a side salad, but some dinner rolls would go great too!

Ham & Potato Soup


Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 3 1/2 cups peeled and diced potatoes
  • 1/3 cup diced celery
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup diced cooked ham
  • 3 1/4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground white or black pepper, or to taste
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk


  • Combine the potatoes, celery, onion, ham and water in a stockpot. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the chicken bouillon, salt and pepper.
  • In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour with a fork, and cook, stirring constantly until thick, about 1 minute. Slowly stir in milk as not to allow lumps to form until all of the milk has been added. Continue stirring over medium-low heat until thick, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, and cook soup until heated through. Serve immediately.
