Christmas has come and gone and well not all the left overs have. I had a chunk of ham left over from Christmas Eve dinner and thought I would put it to good use with a comforting soup. Below is my recipe for Ham Pot Pie Pennsylvania style!
- 2 cups of ham cut into chunks
- 4 potatoes cut into cubes
- 1 cup of baby carrots cut in cubes (you can also use regular size carrots as well)
- 1 medium yellow onion chopped
- 1 egg
- 1 cup of all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp of salt
- 2 tsp of water
- 32 oz. container of broth of your choice (vegetable, chicken, or beef) -I used vegetable
- In a large pot place broth and turn stove on medium heat
- Cut and add carrots, potatoes, and onions and add to broth
- Allow ingredients to come to a soft boil
- Next add your ham to the ingredients and turn your stove to medium-high
- Mixture should begin to boil, place a lid on your pot and allow to boil for 15 to 20 minutes then reduce heat
- In a large mixing bowl place flour, egg, salt, and water and begin to mix ingredients until the dough is stiff
- Place a clean kitchen towel on top of your mixing bowl and set aside for 10 minutes
- Uncover your dough and spread flour onto a clean surface
- Using a rolling pin, roll out dough to about 1/4 inch thickness
- Using a knife, pizza cutter, or pasta cutter, cut squares 2 inch by 2 inch (you can cut them any size you want big or small! The possibilities are unless).
- Allow noodles to sit 20 minutes to dry ( you can let them sit on counter or use a cooling rack)
- Turn your stove up to medium-high once it starts boiling again, you can begin to add your noodles. I put in a handful at a time and continuously stir till they are all incorporated
- Once all your noodles are in, reduce heat to medium-low and cover for 1 hour.
