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! :)

How to Make Cheeseburger Soup


  1. In a large pot, add 2 tbsp. butter, ground beef, onion, carrots, and celery over medium heat. Cook until beef is brown.
  2. Stir in basil, parsley, broth, and potatoes. Bring to a boil, then simmer until potatoes are done, about 12 minutes.
  3. In a small pan, melt 3 tbsp of butter over medium low heat. Stir in flour, then add half and half and stir until smooth.
  4. Gradually add the milk mixture to the soup, stir constantly. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Add cheese gradually, (I add about a handful at a time, stirring after each addition), until cheese is melted. Add sour cream and heat through, but DO NOT BOIL. Enjoy! :)
