Cheesy Ham and Potato Soup

Cheesy Ham and Potato Soup is definitely on of my favorite soups. It is super easy to make and can be suited to your own taste.  I add carrots and broccoli to round out the soup, but those can easily be omitted if you wish.  You can top with bacon, scallions, sour cream, more cheese, or serve in bread bowls.  We love this soup and the best part is it only takes about 30 minutes to make.
