Cook's Tips:

Frankfurters, cut into 1/2-inch slices, can be substituted for the cubed ham.

Any leftover soup should be covered and refrigerated. Soup will thicken once it is refrigerated, but when reheated in the microwave oven, the mixture becomes a saucy entrée.

Let your kids chop the broccoli and onion with our Food Chopper, just one of the many kid-friendly tools from The Pampered Chef®. Kids of all ages like using the food chopper to chop candy-coated chocolate pieces, candy bars, hard candies and sandwich cookies for ice cream drinks and sundae toppings.
