BEST HAM FOR SOUP

If you can recall, I recently picked up a package of their NatureRaised Farms® Uncured Smoked Sliced Ham at Sam’s Club for my Ham and Apple Grilled Cheese Sandwich, and when I went back to get more, I loaded up my cart with some of their uncured bacon, as well. It’s all about the #EatGoodCleanFun.

As of late, in between all the Holiday baking, Holiday parties, Holiday shopping, Holiday-all-the-things, I am running out of time for dinner ideas, and have been making a lot of the classics because I don’t have to think too much about it. Every year, though, around this time, soup is always a top request, and serving this Loaded Baked Potato Soup is honestly a huge treat.

How good does this Lighter Loaded Baked Potato Soup look?

RIGHT?! WOWs.

Chock full of bacon, this healthier spin on loaded baked potato soup is inspired by the wonderful flavors of fully loaded baked potatoes with bacon, Cheddar, sour cream and green onions. Some like to use chives, but I am a fan of green onions and that’s the way it has to be.

And the beauty of the soup is that in these dire in-between Holiday-situations, it just knows what we need. It just knows.

In fact, I think this bacony cheese bomb is actually perfect for Christmas Eve, right after building a snowman, going on a sleigh ride, and throwing a few snowballs at my kids…

  1. Well, I think I would make THIS soup of yours! Looks scrumptious, and I haven’t had a potato soup of any kind in sooo long. I would also love to put this bacon in my mom’s egg casserole recipe.

  2. Stephanie Brown

    I would put ham in with a pot of pinto beans, also roasted and crumbled in salads and in soups. I intend to try this soup receipe soon!

  3. Your recipe looks SO GOOD, I think I’d like to try it! I would also use this ham in a big ol’ pot of ham and beans. My kids have been wanting me to fix that this week.

  4. MICHELLE PERDUE

    I would make a variation of your lighter loaded baked potato soup, with sweet potatoes and the NatureRaised Farms® Uncured Bacon.

  5. Sandy Hunter

    I love to cook a Ham in the crockpot, make a pot of pinto beans, fry up some potatoes, and have a good old country dinner! Then with the leftover ham I make a casserole with noodles, mushroom soup, onion, celery, cheese and the ham, cut up in pieces. Delicious!!

  6. Rosanne Robinson

    I would make an omelette, your recipe potato soup, ham/cheese/lettuce & tomato sandwich and an English muffin topped with a fried egg & topped with a thick slice of NatureRaised Farms Uncured Smoked Sliced Ham – all so yummy!

  7. Linda Szymoniak

    My favorite ways to use bacon are Germon potato salad, spinach salad with warm dressing and bacon, and boiling up a pot of fresh green beans and potatoes with bacon (one of my favorites from the recipes my mom used to make). Of course, it’s good on almost anything!

  8. Jennifer

    I would add the ham to my family’s traditional “scrambled eggs mixed with ham” that we’ve served every Christmas morning for the past 45 years!

  9. David

    One thing we like to make is cinnamon rolls, except we put ham and cheese or bacon and cheese in place of the cinnamon and sugar. They are a hit whenever we make them. I would use this ham to make those.

  10. Mai Drummond

    This soup looks delicious! I would love to cook up the NatureRaised Farms® Uncured Smoked Sliced Ham for breakfast to go along with eggs. Or add it to an egg hashbrown casserole for Christmas morning 🙂

  11. Great lighter version but if I’m going to go, I’m going to go with a smile on my lips so it’s the creamy version for me. 🙂

    I like the texture of a crispy bacon so just a sprinkle before serving for a garnish.
