  • 1 lb. butter
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 lg. onion
  • 6 qt. shredded potatoes
  • 6 qt. milk
  • 5-7 lb. ham, chopped
  • 1 box Velveeta cheese
  • salt


Brown butter, flour and onion together. Boil shredded potatoes in enough water to cover; add this and milk to first mixture, including the potato water. Also add 5-7 lb. chopped ham. Last, add Velveeta. Don't let it boil after it is all together. Doesn't need much salt because of the meat and cheese. Yield: 1 canner full. Takes 5 lb. crackers.

Ham and Potato Soup for Church

This looks good! I would like to reduce the recipe size. It has been quite sometime since I have bought Velveeta. When you say "1 box", what size are you referring to? If I recall correctly, isn't there a size as large as 2 lbs...and, if so, is that the size you are using in the above recipe?

Thank you for sharing the recipe and for feedback!
