This comforting Slow Cooker Ham and Potato Soup is a great meal on a cold day. Set the Crockpot in the morning and then enjoy your creamy gluten-free soup for dinner that evening. The leftovers are fantastic too!

  • Total Time: 7 hours, 35 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x


Units Scale
  • 6 Russet potatoes, washed, peeled, and diced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 8ounce uncured ham steak, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (for gluten-free, use a gluten-free baking flour; I used the Bob’s Gluten-Free Baking Flour)
  • 1 cup whole milk or full-fat coconut milk for dairy-free diets
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions (optional, for topping)


  1. In the base of a slow cooker, add the potatoes, onion, carrots, celery, ham, chicken broth, and pepper. Cover and cook on low for 7 hours or high for 4 hours.
  2. When the cook time is up, remove the lid and use a potato masher to mash the potatoes with the vegetables and ham.
  3. Then, stir in the flour and milk and put the lid back on. Cook for an additional 15 minutes to allow the soup to thicken.
  4. Remove the lid and serve hot.


  1. You can leave the potatoes unpeeled if you wish. I peel mine for a creamier result with no skins.
  2. You can add salt to season, but I find that there is enough of a salty flavor from the ham pieces.
  3. Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Reheat before serving. You can also freeze the leftovers up to 2 months.
  4. If you want a cheesy ham and potato soup, stir in shredded cheddar cheese just before serving! You could also add a canned of rinsed and drained white beans to the recipe if you want to add more fiber to the soup.
