Cheeseburger Soup

Time for another blog recipe! One thing we eat nearly year-round is soup. It’s usually quick to make, tastes great, and provides us with leftovers for lunches the next few days. (Yum) I recently made this latest recipe, and it was given the thumbs up to share on the blog. That’s always a good sign!

SONY DSCCheeseburger Soup (adapted from a Taste of Home recipe)

1 pound ground beef
3/4 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup chopped carrots
3/4 cup chopped celery
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried parsley flakes
4 Tbl. butter (divided)
3 cups chicken broth
4 cups peeled, diced potatoes
1/4 cup flour
2 cups Velveeta process cheese (cubed) or 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cup sour cream

Brown the ground beef, drain and set aside.

In 3 large pan, add 1 T butter with onions, carrots, celery and spices. Saute until tender.

Add the broth, potatoes and beef to this mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.

In a smaller pan, melt the remaining 3T of butter and whisk in the flour. Cook and stir constantly for 3-4 minutes, until it’s bubbly. Add this to the soup and bring to a boil. Cook the soup for another 3-4 minutes and then reduce heat to low.

Stir in the cheese and milk and cook (stirring constantly) until the cheese melts. Remove from heat and blend in the sour cream. Garnish with shredded cheddar, if desired.

Let me know if you try it and like it!

  1. We eat a lot of soup in our house too. This one looks tasty! I have been thinking about knitting Funky Grandpa also so I can’t wait to see how yours turns out! I’d love to know what yarns you are using.

  2. Hi Julie! I am using Wollmeise DK (adjusted my gauge since the pattern calls for fingering). It’s a great pattern. You definitely should make it!

  3. After finishing my sweater, I’m pausing from knitting to warp my loom for a new scarf! Can’t wait to make the soup recipe– soups are the perfect food. I wish someone would open a “soup kitchen” with home made soups (daily 8 + different soups) and breads. I’ll bet it would be very popular!

  4. Sounds Yummy!!! I will have to try it with Gluten Free flour and see how it turns out, but it sounds like “a few of my favorite things..” Great to try this weekend!
