Cheeseburger Soup

Joanne Gerhold


My nephew is in the Military and while he was teaching at West Point he would have a few soldiers over to his home for some good home made food. He got this recipe from me and told me that his men really enjoyed this soup. I mentioned to him to serve it with nice hot home made Beer bread. YUM!!
