Creamy Ham and Wild Rice Soup

I first made this soup back in 2011. My sister-in-law ran our small town grocery store and served up a similar soup for lunch for cold Wyoming days.

It was so good and I couldn’t stop thinking about it until I made it at home. The entire family loved it and it was gone in a flash.  I made it again last week and realized it’s perfect for the leftover holiday ham that will be gracing everyone’s refrigerators in a few weeks.

Petit Jean Meats is based close to where I grew up in Arkansas and they make the best ham, bacon and sausage that I have ever had.  You can order it and have it before the holidays. Their gift boxes are also on top of my gift giving list every year.

  1. I love petit jean ham. I tried the pepper ham at my mom’s last week and it was delicious. I have now started making peppered ham sandwiches for lunch! Your blog is amazing.

  2. The only thing better than winning a gift box like this, would be having you in my kitchen to show me how best to prepare it.
