Cheeseburger Soup Recipe

A Quick and Easy Recipe from Our Newlywed Kitchen

Serves 12


1/2 lb lean ground beef

3/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1 tsp dried basil

1 tsp parsley

1 small onion (chopped)

3 stalks celery (sliced)

3 carrots (peeled and sliced)

6 cups chicken broth

2–3 small potatoes (peeled and diced)

4 Tbs. butter

1/4 cup flour

1.5 cups milk

3/4 lb American or Cheddar Cheese (cubed)

Hot sauce (optional)


In a Dutch oven, brown ground beef and add spices. Then add onions, celery, and carrots. Sauté for 4 more minutes, then add broth and potatoes. Bring potatoes to a boil, and reduce heat. Simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. In a saucepan melt butter over low heat, then add flour stirring constantly for 2-3 minutes. Add mixture to broth. Bring broth to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until thickened. Whisk in milk and cheese. Keep whisking until cheese melts. Serve with bread and hot sauce. 

I wish you joy as you seek to create your own recipe collection and hope they bring you fond memories in years to come.
