Cheesy Ham and Potato Soup, a creamy, comforting, and utterly delicious soup that can be enjoyed all year round. If you have leftover ham, this is the best recipe you can come up with, and it's ready in about 20 minutes or so.  The ham and potato soup does not need any milk, it's creamy enough by blending the potatoes to a puree, then adding some chunky veggies to the plate. Particularly good in the cold season.
