Hello and happy Friday the 13th. OoOoOoO!! I know I am happy because I'm going to be binge watching Netflix's Series of Unfortunate Events today :) Anyone else excited for that? I loved the movie and read the books and loved them, so I'm really excited for Netflix to have gotten their hands on the rights to produce a tv show. It already looks wonderfully dreadful and perfect! Anyways....

I have seriously been digging all soups with potato and corn lately. I don't know why really, but I just love the combination. It may be because of my old favorite dinner of ham steaks with mashed potatoes. Although I would usually fix peas with it, I do still love ham and potatoes together.

This soup is similar to a few others I have posted, but is just different enough for me to be absolutely positive that it needed to be posted!

What you need:
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. thyme leaves
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 1/2 cups potatoes, diced into 1-inch cubes (peeled, if you want)
  • 8 oz. diced ham
  • 1 can sweet corn, drained
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Directions:
  1. Melt butter in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Add onions, carrots, and celery. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes until tender.
  2. Add garlic, thyme, and flour. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes until lightly browned.
  3. Add broth slowly, then add milk and potatoes.
  4. Bring to a boil. Then reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are fork tender, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  5. In a small skillet, fry ham until crispy on the edges. 
  6. Add ham and corn to soup and then season to taste with salt and pepper.
  7. Heat through and serve immediately.
