Paula Deen's Potato and Ham Soap

I found this recipe online and made it with some leftover ham from Christmas, it was quick, easy and the whole family loved.

2 cups of ham cut into small pieces
5 lbs of baking potatoes peeled and diced
1/2 stick of butter
salt and pepper
1 cup half-and-half
1/2 cup sour cream

Put your potatoes in a large pot and add just enough water to cover them. Cover the pot and bring to a boil, then uncover and cook on med-high 20 minutes. Reduce heat and add ham and the butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Over low heat add the sour cream and half-and-half; keep warm over low heat till serving time.

I served mine with some warm bread and a veggie.

I am known as the Soup Queen in our family. Everyone asks me to bring the soup whether it be hot or cold. This receipe was so easy I was hesitant to try it. So glad I did !
It was fabulous. Some of my family sprinkled their favorite shredded cheese on top. Yummy either way !

After making, can you freeze portions up?

Brilliant simplicity. Must be close to my great grandmother's recipe. It's now the first thing I think of when I see Ham on sale.
