  • 2 pounds russett potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 12 ounces frozen corn
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 2 celery ribs, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 12 ounces ham steaks, diced into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 4 sprigs of fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 cups chicken stock (homemade or store bought)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Chopped parsley for garnish (optional)


  • Place the potatoes, corn, onion, carrots, celery, garlic, ham, thyme and ground black pepper in the slow cooker. Pour the chicken broth over. Stir well, cover and cook on low for 7-8  hours or on high for 4 hours.
  • Scoop out some of the potatoes into a plate and mash them with a fork (it's OK if you get some of the ham and other vegetables - they won't really mash much). Return the mashed potatoes to the crock pot, stirring them in to thicken the broth.
  • Stir in the heavy cream and sour cream and cook on high for 15 to 30 minutes.
  • Taste for seasoning and serve. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desire.


The longer you cook the soup after adding the heavy cream and the sour cream, the thicker it will get.
