This is a naturally gluten free recipe for Ham and Potato Soup. It was my Granny's recipe that I added ham too. We always serve ham at Christmas so this is a great way to use the ham after the holiday. It is pure comfort food for me. Every year I make this and it reminds me of my Granny. It is like having her with me every time I make it. I hope you enjoy.
You can make with or without the ham. You can also make with a 2% or less milk but the soup will not be as rich or creamy, however it will be lower in calories. For me I like to enjoy it as below. It is comfort in a bowl.
