This has become our favorite potato and ham soup. I like the addition of thyme and leek; they both add a unique flavor to this soup. I also like the fact that the soup base is broth. Today it was so easy to put everything in the slow cooker and go about volunteering at church.

My husband made this, but omitted the thyme (we don't care for thyme), and it was very flavorful, but there was a lot of broth. We served it with rolls and a salad.

I just made this today but varied from the recipe a little to use what I had on hand. We had a left over ham bone from Christmas dinner so I used 3 cups of BEEF broth, 3 cups of water and put the bone and whatever was left on it in the crock pot. I also used a red onion instead of the leeks since that's what I had on hand. My house smells FABULOUS and we've already sampled a little and cannot wait for dinner. We'll be making this again! Thank you!

I made this exactly as written. I used a ham steak which you can get at any supermarket. No need to wait for leftovers from "big" ham. It had a great ham taste and it was very filling. I suppose you could use a regular onion for the leek if you wanted. A great alternative to chicken soup.
