Leftover Easter ham? Use it to make this tasty broccoli ham soup. It is easy to make and tastes amazing.

My family is much more likely to eat broccoli if it’s in a creamy cheese based soup. Add in some diced ham and it’s even better. Also, the sharp cheddar is what helps makes this soup so tasty. You could use regular cheddar, but I highly recommend grabbing some sharp cheddar at the store to make this!

Pair it with some rolls and dinner is served!

Definitely going in rotation. We sprinkled cheese on top when serving for extra creaminess.
