What You'll Need

  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1/4 cup diced cooked ham
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

What to Do

Can this soup be frozen? I live alone and love to make soup to put into the freezer?

Of course! Go ahead and make as much as you'd like and freeze it for later. Divide prepared soup into freezer-safe containers, let cool, and then freeze.

Excellent recipe for cool rainy days in the fall.. I also make this on below 0 days here up in the Northwoods sometimes I fry a pound of bacon and add that or a pound of sage sausage instead of using ham( Of course I always add at least a pound of ham if using ham) always served with warm fresh yeast rolls I make mine with regular milk or a can of evaporated milk and chicken broth I saut onion celery , a carrot and my meat first then add the rest . MMMMMMM GOOD!

I usually purchase the ends and pieces of bacon, could I use some of those larger end pieces (cooked of course) in place of the ham?

Yes, you can substitute the bacon for ham in this recipe. Yum, we'd love to know how it turns out!
