Ham Broccoli Soup — Hearty and delicious, this soup is a perfect way to use that leftover ham!
With ham, broccoli, potatoes, and swiss cheese, this Ham Potato Chowder is a delicious soup!

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.

Hearty and delicious Ham Broccoli Soup- a perfect soup recipe to warm you up!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.
This Ham and Broccoli Soup is creamy, flavorful, and packed with nutrition!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.

  • Notes

    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.
