We had ham for Christmas and you can only have so many leftover ham sandwiches before you get sick of it. I asked my mom what we could do with the ham and she suggested soup, and boy do I love soup!!!
We looked through another one of our Light & Tasty Taste of Home cookbooks and found a lightened up version of Cheesy Ham 'n Potato Soup. And the best part, we had almost all the ingredients in the house.
Mom chopped up the ham while I boiled the potatoes. I got to use my immersion blender again to mash up some of the potatoes to add to the base.
Ham and onions were sauteed together while I worked more on the base.
I'm pretty sure I ate 3/4s of the pot on my own for lunch in the last few days it was so good. It was such a filling lunch and not horrible for my waistline. This definitely gets starred to make again!
