Continuing on my love of potatoes theme, here are my creamy crock pot potatoes. I made them for our Civil War Inaugural Pot luck Dinner last Saturday. I typically use this recipe for Ham week with left over Christmas ham, but since I have been in a potato mood lately I had to make them. I wish I were more of a crock-pot person. Growing up we would have crock-pot Sunday dinners and I loved every one of them. My poor wedding gift crock pot, though highly valued, is sadly underused. One of my New Year's Goals is to step up my cooking. To this I will add, and use my crock-pot more.
Creamy Potatoes, Ham, and Peas
2 lbs potatoes, peeled, diced
6 - 8 oz ham cubes
1/2 a package of frozen peas, thawed
one bundle of green onions, chopped
4 oz (half a package) cream cheese, cubed
10 oz can of Cream of Chicken soup
salt, pepper, and seasonings to taste
Mix together diced potatoes, ham, Cream of Chicken Soup, and salt and pepper in the crock pot. Heat on high for 5 hours or low 7-8 hours. About 10 minutes before serving add thawed peas, chopped green onions, and cream cheese cubes. Stir together to allow cream cheese to melt. Serve hot.
