When I first made this, I was shocked on how fast it cooked.

Other Additions




If you don't have any leftover ham from dinner, you can always use cooked bacon, Italian cooked sausage or even kielbasa works good.



A deep smokey flavor is the best enhancement to a potato soup that's plain.



This has no flour in it and naturally thickens with the milk and starch from the potato giving the broth it's richness.



Smoked pork chops are another delicious addition to potato soup, I am sure you can also get creative with whatever you like that smokey and flavorful to add.



Of course if you are counting calories, you can always use cubed chicken breast.
