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).

This Slow Cooker Ham and Potato Soup can be ready, waiting for you to come home, peel off the grass covered uniforms and eat! Slow Cooker Ham and Potato Soup that's creamy, full of vegetables and chunks of ham, finished off with milk and sour cream for a easy and delicious hearty soup.

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. This was THE BEST potato soup I’ve ever had. I’m actually back on this page because I couldn’t stop thinking about it so I’m making it again today. Super easy, DELICIOUS, makes amazing leftovers. My boyfriend and I ate on it for three days and didn’t get tired of it. MAKE THIS SOUP AND YOUR DREAMS WILL COME TRUE

  2. I’ve been making this the last 10 months or so, and it has been a huge hit with everyone.

    I do it in the Instapot though for 18 mins or so. And it comes out perfect every time.

    Thank you!!

  3. This looks yummy! I’m trying to prep freezer meals to use postpartum when baby comes next month. Is there any way that this meal could be prepped and used as a freezer meal? Maybe freeze all the ingredients except the creams and flour? If so, how long would this stay good in the freezer?

    1. Unfortunately, the potatoes won’t freeze very well either in this state. They tend to become dry. Sorry.

  4. I made your recipe today for a friend who is recovering from a serious surgery. She had requested “soup and turkey sandwiches please.” I made it as you directed using heavy cream, and saved a little in a bowl for me. Then I delivered the full crock pot to the family….When I returned home, I sampled my bowl of soup. I must say, it is DELICIOUS! The best I’ve ever had! I’m so happy I found this recipe and I’m proud of the meal I took to my friend’s family. Thank you!

  5. Excellent and easy to make soup. I added some barley and substituted cream cheese spread because I did not have sour cream and heavy cream. I also cooked it on the stove rather than slow cooker. It turned out exceptionally well.

  6. So simple and so much flavor. I used left over ham from Easter which I had frozen and also added other veggies that I had, asparagus, corn, cabbage. Soup was so filling, served with crusty bread.

  7. This was Amazing! Hearty,rich and a great way to use leftover ham.
    We garnished our with grated sharp cheddar and chives with a dollop of sour cream.
    Thank you for sharing
    We will be making this again

  8. A wonderful, easy to make soup. Everyone loves it. I serve a bowl of shredded cheese for those who love to make it cheesy. A very satisfying and filling lunch served with fresh crusty breads

  9. Hello Sabrina, I want to say thanks for another great recipe your crock pot potato soup I’ve been making for months now make again last night delicious.
    My husband alway says delicious and tells me not to change anything do what the recipe says, and he’s right. I gave some to my neighbor next door with some biscuits she said wow soup delicious. I also want to say I’ve been making your coke slaw salad for some time now I am getting ready to make again for a side fir St. Patrick’s Day people coming over alway delicious.
    Keep on making your great recipes be well be safe, thank you again.

    1. I’m glad to know you’re enjoying the recipes so much! Thanks for coming back to let me know a few of your favorites.

  10. I love the way this printed out. Big print. Everything on one side of one paper. Congratulations. Haven’t made it yet.

    1. Im confused by this
      16 ounce Cubed Ham 2 packages of packages Smithfield Anytime Favorites™ Cubed Ham
      So do i use 16 ounces of ham or 32?

      1. Sorry to confuse you. Each package is 16 ounces and I used two for a total of 32 ounces for this recipe. You can adjust to whatever amount you’d like. This recipe is very adaptable. Enjoy!

  11. I added thyme and garlic to the initial recipe and then frozen corn for the last 15 minutes. It was very good, but it was amazing the next day! I will definitely be making this again!
