Let’s start our soup by coating the bottom of a pot with a few tablespoons of olive oil and over medium heat sautéing 1 chopped white onion, 1 diced carrot, and 1 stalk of diced celery.

Next diced up a ham steak and add that to your pot.

Now grab a small bag of honey gold potatoes, dice those babies up, and add them to your pot!

Can’t find these mini golden potatoes? 4 regular sized yukon gold potatoes will work as well!

Let’s season up our soup with 1 teaspoon of garlic powder…

A palmful of dried rosemary and fresh pepper to taste. Because our ham is so salty I would hold off on the salt!

Stir in 1/4 cup of flour…

This will help thicken up your soup.

Then pour in 4 cups of chicken broth.

Bring this pot to a boil, then allow it simmer for 20-30 minutes…

Or until your potatoes are nice and soft!

You can finish this soup 1 of 3 ways. You could go the healthy route and stir in a few handfuls of fresh spinach. You could be decadent and stir in a 1/2 cup of heavy cream…

Or you could be like me and stir in a few handfuls of sharp cheddar cheese!

I’ll always take the cheese option!

Nothing beats of big bowl of this potato soup on a chilly fall evening!

    My brother used to get poison oak SO BAD! Once he was covered with it, and then dumped his motorcycle. People came running up, thinking he was covered in road rash. When he told them it was “just poison oak” then they were really grossed out.

    He sold the motorcycle, moved to NY and now only gets poison oak while out here on vacation. No one else in the family gets it.

    By the way, those Yukon Gold potatoes are so good, I make vegan potato soup with them and they still turn into the richest yummiest pot of goodness!

    You know what I just realized? Unless people read the whole post from your website, commenting on it in the “recipe only” section makes the comment writer look really weird. For the record, this article started off with a discussion about poison oak! :O)

  3. Jessica, your poor brother! Poison oak is the worst!!

  4. This looks so delicious and fallish. I always love your recipes. They are clear and your photos are so helpful. I think I am going to make this without the ham this weekend. I have buckets of Yukon Golds waiting for the soup pot! Thank you! I would love to hear more about your pageant. That is so exciting.

    Great soup recipe. It’s fantastic and with the sharp cheddar it’s almost like eating a baked potato soup…..thanks for another great and easy addition to soups for the start of November.
