Slow Cooker Ham and Potato Soup
It’s getting colder and it’s slow cooker soup season! We had leftover ham from Christmas day and so we made Slow Cooker Ham and Potato Soup!
We have been sick the 10 days and haven’t felt like cooking a ton and my solution when that is the case is always to make crockpot meals. We did smoke a ham on Christmas that was fantastic but since the kids were sick and insisting on snuggles I did not get a good picture for you guys!
We’ll do it again though because we loved it! The nice thing about cooking a nice big ham on Christmas is that we had a bunch of really good leftovers! With that we made this Ham and Potato soup. I did not add cheese because I didn’t want it to be too rich for the boys and for some reason they really don’t want cheese lately. I topped mine with cheese and it was great! Enjoy!

- 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
