I have both been wanting to cook with my crock pot as well as eat soup. This recipe for ham and potato soup was low in fat without sacrificing flavor. It was rich and comforting. I used a 1 pound ham steak, golden potatoes (with peels), a yellow onion and three carrots. I also used skim milk and low fat sour cream because those are my preferences. I do not think this affected the flavor but the soup did look like the sour cream slightly curdled. Again, you could not taste this and I would make it the same next time.
