Silly face ham chowder


Have a little fun with your children while teaching them how to cook. This silly face chowder can be a ball to make and they will dive right in when it's time to eat. For boys add a few extra shoestring potatoes to create a bread or mustache on their silly face.


2 cn
soup (18.5 oz. cans of potato with broccoli and cheese soup)
6 oz
ham (cooked ham, cubed)
1 c
corn ( frozen kernels)
1⁄2 c
shoetring potatoes
olives (small pimento stuffed olives)
cherry tomato (cut into 4 wedges)


  1. Pour both cans of soup into a saucepan and place the pan over medium heat.
  2. Stir in the ham and corn and bring the soup to a boil.
  3. Once boiling, turn the heat to low and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Ladle the soup into 4 serving bowls.
  5. Scatter a few shoestring potatoes around the top of the bowl to represent hair.
  6. Place 2 olives under the “hair” to represent the eyes being sure the pimento is facing up.
  7. Add a wedge of tomato for the mouth.
