Different potato varieties. – The potato is the vegetable of choice in the United States.

It’s Cold Outside.

In Wyoming when it’s snowing and the wind is blowing, this is a great recipe to keep you warm and your stomach full on those long winter nights during the holidays.

Prep time for a family of four, 45 minutes.

It takes a while to prepare, but well worth it

Peel 16-18 potatoes

Slice and cube one quarter pound of ham

cut and cube one half onion

set aside five cups of milk and one cup of cream

Cook Time 1 hour and 15 minutes

Add enough water to cover potatoes in stock pot, bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes will break easily with a fork. Approx 45 min.

During that time cook ham and onions in 1-tsp of oil or butter, set aside

After potatoes are done, drain water and set aside two cups of potatoes, return the rest to the stock pot.

Add milk, cream, ham and onions to potatoes
