December is here and I think it is safe to say that it is officially “Soup Season!” This Hammy Mac & Cheese Soup is the perfect way to start it off, if you haven’t been pulling out your Dutch oven and putting it to good use already. Imagine taking a bowl of macaroni and cheese, with some ham and broccoli and turning it into a rich, creamy soup. Well that is exactly what I did!
This soup is a great way to use up some of that left over holiday ham that you have in your freezer. Tell me I’m not the only one that intentionally cooks way more meat than necessary on the holidays, so I can freeze portions for future meals. If you don’t, you should!
Today I shared this recipe over at Hip Homeschool Moms. You can see the post with all of the step-by-step photos here.
This recipe is a great use of leftover holiday ham. For the half & half, you can also use 1/2 milk and 1/2 heavy whipping cream - another holiday leftover.
