  • 1 pound 2 cups diced potatoes, about 4 large potatoes
  • 8 ounces diced ham
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • ½ onion diced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 stalk celery diced
  • 1 carrot diced
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 ½ cups half and half or milk
  • Cheddar Cheese for Topping Optional


  1. In a slow cooker combine potatoes, ham, corn, onion, celery, carrots garlic, thyme, salt and pepper. Stir well.
  2. Cook over low heat for 8 hours or high heat for 6 hours.
  3. With one hour left to go in the cooking process, take a potato masher and mash the potatoes until most of them are broken up giving the soup a nice thick consistency. You can take a couple of spoonfuls of potatoes out of the slow cooker before you do this with a slotted spoon so that there are some nice big chunks left. Then stir in your milk or half and half and allow to finish cooking.
  4. Top with cheddar cheese and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

This is a great recipe if you have some extra ham laying around, like I always seem to do after the holidays. I love to have a big loaf of crusty bread to dip into it to sop up all the yumminess! We top ours with some cheddar cheese, but you don't need to stop there. Add a little extra flair by topping with some crumbled bacon bits, green onions or a drizzle of sour cream.
