Leftover Scalloped Potato Soup

Want a use for leftover scalloped potatos? Make soup.
After a holiday meal I always use up my leftover ham and make scalloped potatoes and ham with brocolli, but this year, I made too much!
Now what? Scalloped potato soup... I found this online.

4 cups leftover scalloped potatoes
1 cup cubed ham (optional)
**NOTE: I added some leftover bacon(cubed) as well.
4 cups chicken broth
1 tablespoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Place the scalloped potatoes and ham into a large pot, and pour in enough chicken broth to cover the potatoes completely. Season with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, and reduce heat to low. This sticks to the bottom of the pot easily, so I heated well and transfered to a crock pot to keep hot. Stir in the Cheddar and Parmesan cheese, and simmer for about 10 minutes.
In crockpot mix liquid and seasonings, throw the leftovers in the crockpot before work so supper is ready as soon as you add the cheese when you get home!

This was tested by my daughter (12) and niece(12) who thought it was quite awesome.
