    This is the best ham, potato, and cheese soup I have ever had!!! It was so easy to make and tasted wonderful! It was a hit with my husband and son. I used Velveeta cheese in place of the shredded cheddar because I did not have any cheddar. It was so nice and creamy and full of flavor. Definately a keeper!!!  -  29 Oct 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My husband loved this. I simmered the ham bone and used the broth in the soup along with the ham pieces. I didn't add any salt.  -  08 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is my favorite soup of all time. The only change I made to the recipe is that I used chicken broth in place of the water to add more flavor.  -  10 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
