I love a soup that is creamy, tasty, and hearty and this creamy potato soup with ham is just that. It is the perfect meal for busy nights and is ready in just 30 minutes. My favorite thing about this recipe is that it uses leftover honey ham. Which makes it great to make after holidays like Christmas or Easter.

Don’t worry if you don’t have any leftover honey ham to use. It also works great with regular precooked ham as well. If you are not a ham fan you should take a look at our Crockpot Potato Soup. It is another hearty soup that your family will love.
