Creamy Ham and Potato Soup

Creamy Ham and Potato Soup

Warm up with this! Nothing’s more satisfying than hot and creamy soup on a cold winter day. So, I’ve made this recipe impossibly easy with some labor shortcuts. The first is using diced frozen potatoes from the freezer section of your grocery store. The second is buying the ham already diced. Both of these time savers will make you look forward to making this wonderful soup, but, more importantly, to enjoy eating it!
