    My mom discovered purely by accident that you don't even have to cook the potatos beforehand. She added the chopped potatos to the crock pot & then poured the soup mixture on top, added the ham, mixed & then cooked on high all day (8 hours). The potatos came out perfect -not too smooshy & much less work. You can cut out the extra dirty pan too.
