Creamy Ham, Potato and Broccoli Chowder


Creamy Ham, Potato and Broccoli Chowder

This is so good on a cold winter night.  Garnish it with shredded cheese, if you like.

  • 3 1/2 cups peeled and diced potatoes
  • 1/3 cup diced celery
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 cup small broccoli florets
  • 1 1/2 cups diced cooked ham
  • 3 1/4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 5 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups whole milk

Combine first five ingredients with water in a stockpot.  Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes.  Stir in the chicken bouillon, salt and pepper.

In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.  Whisk in flour and cook, stirring constantly until flour is no longer raw, about 1 minute.  Stir in milk and continue stirring over medium heat until thick.

Stir the milk mixture into the stockpot, and cook until heated through.  Serve immediately.

Makes 6 servings.
