Soup-er Saturday: Cheesy Vegetable & Ham

Happy Saturday!
Perhaps you will {heart} this creamy, rich and simple to prepare soup. Even if you don't sample the soup, you'll want to stick around long enough to read about my Soup-er Challenge!

Velvety Vegetable Cheese (and Ham) Soup

1- 160z. frozen broccoli, cauliflower, and carrot mix
2 - 14oz. cans of fat free reduced-sodium chicken broth
12 oz. pasteurized prepared cheese product (ie: Velvetta), cut up
Your holiday ham left overs cut into bite size pieces

Place veggies and broth in a large saucepan. Cover. Bring to a boil on medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Mash vegetable with a potato masher to the desired consistency.Stir in cheese and ham. Cook 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and soup is thoroughly heated. Stir frequently.

Makes 6 - 1 cup servings

Our family has made this soup in the past, however we have not added ham to it until now. Cook's ham has generously sent us one of their delicious holiday hams. They are also offering 1 to you (valued at $30)! Cook's hams are "always good to the bone." If you win, you will actually have a choice of bone-in ham, ham steaks, spiral sliced ham, or corned beef brisket.

To be entered to win you'll want to plan ahead for next week's Soup-er Saturday. Prepare a post about ANY recipe that is fabulous for making good use of your leftover holiday hams. It does not have to be a soup recipe, although you can expect to see a soup or salad recipe from me. If you do not have a blog where you can post your recipe, feel free to email it to me and I will include it for you! I'd like everyone to have a chance to win! For some cooking inspiration you might want to start by checking out the sample recipes from Cook's.

Even if you are not a ham-eating family, this would be a lovely gift to give to a neighbor or a family in need this season!

For this week, if you have a soup recipe to link to, please do! Consider it an additional entry into next week's giveaway!
