Cheesy Ham Soup


  • leftover ham bone
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 lb. Velveeta cheese
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 can cream of mushroom or cream of celery soup (fill with water 1 1/2 times and add)
  • Ad
  • 2 cups diced cooked ham (use leftovers, if convenient)
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms, fresh or canned
  • 1 lb. broccoli, cut up in bite-size pieces, fresh or frozen
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 cup quick barley
  • 1/4 tsp. marjoram
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder


Put enough water in 4 qt. pot to cover ham bone. Add onions and season to taste. Simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Remove ham from bone and save with liquid. Discard bone.

Microwave the Velveeta and milk until melted, 4-6 minutes. Combine this mixture with the reserved ham mixture and remaining ingredients.

Bring to a full boil and reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 1-2 hours or until vegetables are tender.
