    We made this tonight! It was amazing! It was creamy without being heavy. I could have eaten the soup even with out adding the cream. I added some fresh rosemary and minced garli and used brats that were left over from dinner instead of ham. Thank you!

    Delicious. Left over ham and bone from New years. Just finished the final touches as prescribed by Rachel. The rosemary gives it a nice taste that compliments the ham well.

    I made this for my family for dinner tonight. It turned out really good! I doubled it and add dried chives and garlic powder. Thanks for the recipe!!!

    This turned out deliciously. I used a large ham bone and added additional ham, and a bit of good cheddar at the end, in addition to the roux and milk. I think since I used so much ham, it had a pink color that wasn’t terrific, but the taste outweighed the odd color! Will make again for sure. Great to have something to do with that leftover ham/bone and potatoes that I always have around!

    Ive made this receipe COUNTLESS times and it gets rave REVIEWS
    I use the Bouillon cubes with less salt, as a few times its been super salty to taste.
    I ALWAYS add the ham bone as it gives it so much additional flavor..
    This freezes very well and can be made over and over again.
