Incredibly easy, body-warming soup for days when you just need dinner to make itself.
Combine the uncooked potatoes, seasoning packet, celery, onion, ham, chicken broth, and pepper in your crock pot. Cook on low for about 5 hours (or on high for about 3 hours). There is some flexibility here, you just need to make sure the potatoes are soft. Whisk the four and the half-and-half together in a bowl and add to the crock pot. Cook an additional 30 minutes on high, stirring occasionally.
I love to add Tabasco sauce to my bowl of soup. It gives it a really subtle hint of heat. But I don’t add it to the entire batch of soup because my kids are pretty plain jane.
This is fantastic served with grilled cheese sandwiches.
You can also use a box of scalloped potatoes instead of the au gratin. Use whatever you have on hand!
