Cook Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 3 ½ cups peeled and diced potatoes
  • 1/3 cup diced celery
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • ¾ cup diced cooked ham
  • 3 ¼ cups water
  • 2 Tbsp chicken bouillon granules
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 5 Tbsp of butter
  • 5 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups of milk

Instructions:

  1. Combine the potatoes, celery, onion, ham and water in a stockpot. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 10 – 15 minutes. Stir in chicken bouillon, salt and pepper.
  2. In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour with a fork and cook, stirring constantly until thick, about 1 minute. Slowly stir in milk, not allowing lumps to form. Continue to cook while stirring over medium heat until thick, about 4 minutes.
