prep: 20 mins cook: 25 mins total: 45 mins Servings: 8 Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 ½ cups peeled and diced potatoes
  • ⅓ cup diced celery
  • ⅓ cup finely chopped onion
  • ¾ cup diced cooked ham
  • 3 ¼ cups water
  • 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
  • ½ 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

Directions

    Step 1

    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.

    Step 2

    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.

    Step 3

    Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, and cook soup until heated through. Serve immediately.
