Cheeseburger Soup

Deborah McIntyre


I love the flavor of this soup! It's not a "pretty" soup, but what it lacks in beauty, it more than makes up for in flavor. I had this soup one day while travelling with friends. We stopped at a little Mom & Pop's cafe and this was the soup of the day. I loved it so much, I tried to recreate it at home. Hope you all like it! :)
