Ingredients

3 tablespoons butter

1 onion, diced

5 carrots, diced

4 stalks celery, diced

3 cloves garlic, chopped

2 teaspoon thyme, chopped

2 tablespoons parsley, chopped

2 teaspoons chives, chopped

1/2 cup flour (or a gluten free version - Pamela's is a great option)

8 white or red potatoes, diced small and optionally peeled

10 -16 ounces ham, diced

2 cups frozen corn

salt and pepper to taste


Optional: Bacon & Cheese to top off bowl



Directions


Heat the butter in a large sauce pan over medium-high heat, add the onions, carrots and celery and cook until tender, about 10-12 minutes.


Mix in the garlic, thyme, parsley, chives and flour and cook until the flour is lightly browned, about 2 minutes.

Slowly stir in the broth, deglazing the pan as you go, add the milk and potatoes, cook for about 5 minutes - then add the diced ham and corn & season with salt and pepper. Stir. Remove from pot and add it all to a crock pot and cook on low for 4-6 hours.


Options:


Serve with bacon bits and cheese on the top.

You can also replace the potatoes with cauliflower.
