    Delicious and hearty Instant Pot Ham and Potato Soup made with leftover ham and russet potatoes. Made for less than 30 minutes. Perfect for cold weather!

    Instant Pot Ham and Potato Soup-1

    This easy and comforting Instant Pot Ham and Potato Soup is so delicious and flavorful! Even though Spring is only a couple of days away, I am still craving delicious and hearty soups. I have made this soup several times this winter, and my husband always asks for seconds and my 1-year-old son gobbles it up. This ham and potato soup is perfect for chilly weather.

    If you have tried my Instant Pot Ham and White Bean Soup, you will love this soup as well. The competition is pretty stiff because both of these soups taste amazing! I used leftover ham from a bone-in ham. You can also use ham bone, a meaty ham shank or ham hock with some extra meat.

    If you’re making a big bone-in ham for Easter this year, don’t throw away the leftover ham bone once all the meat’s been cut off. You can add it to this ham and potato soup to add instant flavor!

    Soups are a big part of the Winter and Fall season for us – they are easy, comforting and so delicious. They instantly warm you up and are pretty much “set it, and forget it”, especially if you are using an Instant Pot. This ham and potato soup recipe is also great because you can literally dump all the ingredients, and set the Manual setting for 10 minutes. After the soup comes to pressure (in about 10-15 minutes), it takes only 10 minutes to cook, and you have a delicious meal you can eat for dinner and even for lunch the next day.

    The best part of this leftover ham bone soup with potatoes is that it’s perfect for weeknight dinners when you don’t have much time to prepare dinner. This Instant Pot soup doesn’t require much prep or cook time, but it tastes as if it has been simmering on the stove for hours. This ham potato soup is also naturally creamy when using Russet potatoes as they break up a little bit while cooking.

    Hope you make and enjoy this ham potato soup in the Instant Pot as much as you have loved the other Instant Pot recipes on the blog.
