Leftover Easter Ham with Potatoes Soup Recipe

The Leftover Easter Ham with Potatoes Soup Recipe offers a delicious solution for utilizing Easter ham leftovers. The main ingredients include diced potatoes, celery, onion, and, of course, leftover ham, creating a hearty and comforting soup perfect for repurposing holiday feasts.

The soup-making process begins with creating a flavorful ham broth using the leftover Easter ham bone. Boiling the bone in water for about 25 minutes and straining the resulting broth provides the base for the soup. Diced potatoes, celery, onion, and leftover ham meat are added to the broth, enhancing the richness and texture of the dish. The inclusion of chicken bouillon granules, salt, and pepper contributes to the savory profile of the soup.

To create a creamy and thick consistency, a roux is prepared by combining butter and flour before adding milk to the mix. This creamy blend is then incorporated into the soup, providing a luscious texture and a delightful contrast to the heartiness of the potatoes and ham. The final touch includes a garnish of green onion or chive, adding a burst of freshness to each spoonful.

This Leftover Easter Ham with Potatoes Soup Recipe is not only a practical solution for using holiday leftovers but also a flavorful and satisfying meal in itself. The blend of textures, from the tender ham to the creamy broth and the hearty potatoes, ensures a delightful culinary experience.
