  • 2 cups diced ham Or a meaty leftover ham bone.
  • 1/3 cup diced carrots
  • 1/3 cup diced celery
  • 1/3 cup diced onions
  • 2 pounds diced potatoes
  • 4-5 cups broth I used chicken. Add enough broth to cover the potatoes and vegetables.
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground oregano


  • Add all of the ingredients to the slow cooker.
  • Cook on High for 3-4 hours or on Low for 7-8 hours.
  • Cool before serving.


  • You can use any potatoes you like. I always have russet potatoes on hand at home. That’s what I used. You can also use red potatoes, Yukon gold, etc. The cook time will stay within the range noted in the recipe. Keep a close eye and cook the potatoes until soft.
  • I don’t find it necessary to thicken the soup, since it’s made with thick potatoes. If you wish, you can create a cornstarch slurry Use 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and combine it with two tablespoons of the cooked soup. Mix the two together separately, and add it back to the soup. Stir. The soup will thicken the longer it stands.
