Soups are a big part of the Fall season for us, with their instant “warm you up” abilities and ability to freeze portions or take portions for quickly heated lunches. We are constantly keeping out slow cookers going in the winter for soups, especially this Slow Cooker Ham and Potato Soup.

This recipe was made in partnership with Smithfield who also sponsored this post for amazing Black Pepper Bacon Biscuits that incidentally would go fabulously with this soup!

The Slow Cooker Ham and Potato Soup simmers away on its own, melting the vegetables into this delicious creamy base. A quick mash, a bit of heavy cream and sour cream and dinner is served!

The best part of slow cooker meals like this Slow Cooker Ham and Potato Soup is that they’re perfect for weeknights now that everyone is back to school or for those hearty meals you’re going to need after a day spent out at the soccer fields watching the little ones run around in a pattern that almost resembles soccer (we just started toddler soccer here… and oh boy).

The Smithfield Anytime Favorites Hickory Smoked Cubed Ham used in this recipe was inspired by the flavors of Smithfield Ham which I grew up enjoy for holiday meals, but in really convenient packaging and in almost any cuts you could hope for which helps cut prep time drastically.

Tools Used in the making of this Slow Cooker Ham and Potato Soup:
Slow Cooker: Love this slow cooker and how programmable it is, it has been a workhorse for me… until…
My New Slow Cooker: This recipe was made in this slow cooker. For larger roasts I also brown the meat in the insert and not lose a bunch of the flavor by transferring the meat and leaving the browned bits behind. If you’re thinking of a new slow cooker, consider it if your budget is open.
Better Than Bouillon: I almost never buy boxes of broth because I keep the beef, chicken and vegetable version of this Better Than Bouillon.
Spice Rack – I buy spices in bulk from local grocers and from Penzey’s. It’s less expensive and significantly higher quality than buying the jars individually but I ended up being left with tons of little bags of spices. Enter the spice rack.

  1. Hello again Sabrina oh my oh my this was the best ham and potato soup recipe that I made for me and my husband he can’t stop talking about how good it turned out because of you, thank you. Sabrina I made a potato recipe before that I found but yours was the best. So easy put everything in my crockpot and it was easy creamy tasty. My husband said to me, made sure to keep this recipe in a place where you won’t misplace when we make again.

    Thank you,

  2. That would be an OMG Yes!!!! This was so easy to make and delicious even my children loved it… My husband had seconds… ?????

  3. This is my second time making this… it’s definitely a family favorite. My husband who isn’t a “soup kinda of guy” even said he LOVED it and to keep the recipe for sure.

    Both times I’ve made it I had cooked a 7lb ham and used the left overs for the soup. It’s amazing. I’m so happy I found this delicious recipe! “soup”Er delicious!!!

  4. This was my first soup I have ever made and It may be my last if i can get the courage to make a new kind I don’t really take chances but me and my family are super happy I took one on this recipe. Super easy and so delicious it’s the best!!!!!!

  5. Made this last night and it was super good! I read other comments and did the heavy cream/sour cream/flour on the stove in a sauce pan on medium heat. It worked perfect and was easier to mix around in the crockpot. It made everything so creamy and delicious! I used leftover ham from Easter, and cut into cubes. So easy! The flavoring was great, but next time I think I will add a few more ingredients to make it a bit more flavorful (maybe a bit of garlic powder or something.) I will definitely add some cheese in my bowl as well! I love how easy and simple this recipe is, and it turned out so yummy!

    1. My son (who usually hates soups and is a picky eater generally) requested that i make this again this morning!! It’s super simple and hearty. I like my soups a little on the chunky side, so i quartered my potatoes and cut the rest of the veggies chunky as well. This gave me a little bit more potato chicks after mashing this time around. I also used whole milk this time instead of heavy cream to thin it out a little and added about a tablespoon of garlic powder and 1/4 cup medium cheddar when i added the milk, flour and sour cream. These changes made it super flavorful. If my picky eater will eat it, then it’s definitely one to save!!
