I tweaked this recipe a little. I used 1/2 lb of pre-cooked cubed ham, 1/2 lb of frozen corn, 2% milk instead of whole cream, added 2 Tbsp. flour (to thicken soup), 1/4 cup shreaded cheese and 3Tbsp. butter. Okay... I changed the recipe a lot! However, it was REALLY good! I figured if I kicked out the heavy cream I could afford to add butter and cheese to it!

Good solid soup. I'd make it again. I used what I had on hand: 1% milk, yukon gold potatoes, one can of corn, and I diced ham steak (about 2 cups). I used more milk and less water (about 3c and 2c) then added a little cornstarch slurry to thicken it up. I'm going to try adding cheese next time but otherwise wouldn't change much.
