Serves: 6 servings
Ingredients
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 carrots, sliced thin
  • 3 celery stalks, diced
  • ½ medium onion, diced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3½ cups milk
  • 2 russet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1¼ cups frozen corn kernels
  • 12 oz. boneless ham steak, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
Instructions
  1. Melt butter in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, carrots, and celery cook, stirring frequently, about 8-10 minutes. Stir garlic, thyme, and bay leaf cook until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes.
  2. Whisk in flour, cook for 1 minute. Slowly whisk in milk. Add potatoes, corn, ham, salt, and pepper.
  3. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender about 13-15 minutes.*
  4. When the potatoes are tender, use a potato masher and mash about ⅓ of the potatoes. This depends on your desired thickness of the soup. We like it thick and creamy.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Serve immediately.
Notes
*Cooking time may need to be adjusted depending on the thickness of the potatoes.
