Wild Rice Ham Soup

I love making soup. I think it is the perfect dinner at the end of a chilly day, don’t you?  I have several soup recipes that we rotate through on a regular basis, but I am always on the lookout for a new soup to try out. I’ve had this one on my “to try” list for ages, and finally got around to making it.
Boy am I glad I did! It comes together in a snap, but no one would ever guess. It tastes amazing, and my whole family loved it. I never would have thought to garnish soup with almonds, but I love the crunch they add. I served it with Garlic Knots, and it was a delicious meal. The only bad part is that we ate every drop, so we had no leftovers for lunch the next day. Next time I make it, I will be doubling the recipe for sure. 🙂wild-rice-ham-soup-recipe

1 1/2 cups diced ham
2 cups milk
1 cup cream
Salt and pepper to taste
Sliced almonds

Saute onion in butter till tender. Whisk in flour and cook for 1 minute. Add chicken broth and rice mix, including seasoning packet. Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, till rice is tender.
