This is a great way to use leftover ham. My son suggested I try to make a creamed ham soup and this is what I got. It's very rich and comforting. Works great in bread soup bowls.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
about 3 cups leftover boneless ham rind removed and diced 1/2 inch
about 2 cups diced carrots
2 large potatoes cooked in microwave cooled peeled and diced 1/2 inch
2 ribs celery diced
3 bay leaves
1/2 cup flour
2 15 oz cans chicken broth
6 tbs butter divided into threes
2 tbs olive oil for veggies
3 tbs olive for ham
half pint heavy cream
end piece of ham and any rinds
salt
pepper

Add half a can of chicken broth cover and simmer till soft. In large soup pot or dutch oven melt third butter and 3 tbs olive oil. Add ham cover and simmer 10 minutes until liquid is released.
