As soon as the fall season hits I love to make delicious soup recipes. Let’s face it, as soon as the temperature drops here in Minnesota it is officially soup season. One of my families favorite recipes is a Cheesy Potato & Ham Soup- Yum! Whenever I make this soup, I never have any complaints. Not even from my somewhat picky two-year-old. My Inspiration for this soup came from loaded baked potato soup and my love for cheese. On a cold fall night, you can’t get much better than a bowl of this creamy cheesy loaded soup. Enjoy!
