Ingredients

  • 6 Potatoes (about 7 cups)
  • 1 Onion, chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 16oz diced Ralph's Boneless Ham
  • 1 can of Cream of Celery soup (10.5oz)
  • 1 can Vegetable or Chicken broth (14.5oz)
  • 1 1/2 cups Water
  • 2 teaspoons Minced Garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 2 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 tablespoon Flour
  • 16oz Ralph's Sugar Cured Bacon slices (cooked and crumbled into bits)

Instructions

  1. Wash, peel and dice the potatoes.  Place in the bottom of a slow cooker (Crockpot).
  2. Add diced onion, ham, cream of celery soup, vegetable or chicken broth, water, minced garlic, and black pepper.  Cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.  You want the potatoes to be tender.

  4. Garnish with the remaining cheese and crumbled bacon bits. 
  5. Enjoy!
