Ham Broccoli Soup — Hearty and delicious, this soup is a perfect way to use that leftover ham!
I first tried this soup years ago at a church dinner. I loved it so much that I made sure to get the recipe. It is oh so yummy!
My family doesn’t even like Swiss cheese, but they all love this broccoli soup. I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to share the recipe.
The combination of flavors and textures in this broccoli soup is just amazing. Ham, swiss, and broccoli is such a delicious combo!
I like to cook it till the broccoli is just barely tender, because I like a little crunch. I definitely recommend using fresh broccoli, frozen ends up a little mushy.
Serve it with some homemade oatmeal rolls and you have a hearty comforting meal.
If you have someone in your family with a gluten intolerance, this is a perfect soup. One of the only recipes I’ve seen for creamy soup that doesn’t have flour in it.

Broccoli Ham Chowder
Hearty soup with ham, broccoli, and swiss cheese. An easy and tasty chowder!
- 3 potatoes, peeled and diced
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 pounds chopped fresh broccoli
- 1 1/2 cups diced ham
- 3 cups milk
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- In a large soup pot, cook potatoes in broth and salt for 15 minutes.
- Add broccoli and cook till crisp tender, 5-10 more minutes.
- Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
If you prefer a thicker soup, you can melt together 1/4 cup butter and flour in a small saucepan, then add to the soup after cooking the broccoli. Stir often while the soup is simmering.
