Crockpot Potato and Ham Soup

Now that the redskins are harvested:

Crockpot Potato and Ham Soup

4 Cups diced and (peeled-optional) redskin or other firm potatoes
1 large yellow or white onion diced
2 stalks of celery diced
1 Cup sliced baby carrots
3 cloves garlic minced or pressed
2 Cups diced lean ham
1 tsp. olive oil
2 15 oz. cans of chicken broth
1 tsp. dried thyme (or 1/4 cup fresh if you have it...I did!)
2 bayleaves
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
few dashes salt
1/4 Cup all purpose flour
1 Cup milk
1 small brick Velveeta (I used Light)
1/2 C shredded sharp cheddar cheese


Combine first 12 ingredients in 6 qt. crockpot and cook 5 hrs on high (or can cook first hour on high and switch to low and cook 7 hrs) or until veggies are tender. Then turn to high setting if was on low and remove cover. Shake milk and flour in jar or gravy mixer until blended and stir into soup to thicken. Cube the Velveeta and stir into soup with the cheddar. Continue to cook on high uncovered for 30-40 minutes, stirring frequently until soup thickens. Serve with warm bread for dipping.

Enjoy!!
