Fall is just around the corner.  It is, without a doubt, my favorite season of the year!  Back to school, football season, cooler weather, and the turning of the leaves are just a few of my favorite attributes that come with the season.  We’ll have several activities going this fall, including my son’s baseball season, Drum Corp performances, as well as all of his school activities.  It makes for a wonderfully busy (and blessed!) life! With all of these busy activities, I quickly learned that having my slow cooker at the ready is a must!  My trusty slow cooker is probably my favorite go-to kitchen tool for having dinner ready to eat once we get back from practices and actives or before we head out to games.  My newest favorite slow cooker recipe is this incredible Slow Cooker Loaded Baked Potato and Ham Soup.

One of my favorite ways to prepare baked potato soup is to cook it in the slow cooker with delicious, smokey Sugardale Ham.  It is a wonderful addition to the soup.  When cooking along with the potatoes and onions in the slow cooker, the ham adds amazing savory flavor, that goes perfect in this hearty soup.

I used a Sugardale Ham Roast, which is fantastic for chopping and adding to soups, stews, pasta, pizza and more!  You get great value for the amount of meat you get in each roast. Plus, Sugardale Ham Roast is great prepared as Sugardale suggests in the enclosed cooking bag for an easy weeknight meal.  This is great for left over ham! For this recipe, I add about two cups of diced ham to the soup.  I will then chop up the remaining roast and add it to freezer bags, perfect for future meals.  I’ve already earmarked one of these packages of ham for my Thin Crust Smokehouse Pizza, and definitely more batches of this fantastic soup!

Once you’ve diced the ham, I’ll add it, along with the diced potatoes, and chopped onion to the slow cooker.  Then, add the carton of chicken broth.  Depending on the time you have until dinner, set your slow cooker on low for 4-6 hours, or on high for 3-4 hours.  When you come home, your house will smell amazing, with this delicious, savory soup simmering away!

When the potatoes have cooked through, you can then add the half-and-half mixture.  This comes together on your stovetop in just a few minutes.  Add this to the soup, and continue to cook for another 20-30 minutes. Once your soup is done, feel free to add extra toppings, like shredded cheddar cheese, sliced green onions, more diced Sugardale ham, and even some crispy, Sugardale bacon!  It will taste just like a loaded baked potato, but more creamy and comforting!

Not only is this hearty soup great for a busy weeknight, it will be fantastic for lazy Sundays when we’re watching football.  Keeping it warm in the slow cooker, and ladling yourself a bowl is the perfect way to spend a fall afternoon.
