Cheeseburger Soup

Diane Atherton


What better time than the fall for a fresh pot of soup.

This time of year that's what I seem to want; soup, soup and more soup.

I look for hearty one meal soups and this one fits the bill!

I found this recipe recently and I've modified it to my taste, feel free to do the same.

Hope you enjoy!

How to Make Cheeseburger Soup


  1. This is what you need.
  2. Brown ground meat, drain and rinse to remove grease; set aside.
  3. Saute onions, carrots, and celery in Olive Oil until vegetables are slightly tender; add basil and parsley.
  4. Add browned meat, potatoes and chicken broth to sauted vegetables; bring to slow boil, reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are slightly tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remember potatoes with continue to cook and you don't want then mushy.
  5. Meanwhile, combine melted butter and flour to make a paste. Add this to the vegetable and potato mixture, Over a low heat, continue stirring until thickened. Add cheese and milk, stirring until cheese has melted. Add salt and pepper to taste. NOTE: the low heat will prevent the milk from cuddling.
  6. If desired, stir in sour cream just before serving. NOTE: I opted to not put the sour cream in the pot of soup, however for those of us that wanted sour cream I let them put in as little or as much as they wanted.
  7. Serve with warm crusty french bread or biscuits.
