Cheeseburger Soup Recipe

Cheeseburger Soup Recipe

A local restaurant serves a similar soup but wouldn't share its recipe with me. So I developed my own, modifying a recipe for potato soup. I was really pleased at the way this "all-American" soup turned out. —Joanie Shawhan, Madison, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. Cook: 10 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 3/4 cup diced celery
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1-3/4 pounds (about 4 cups) cubed peeled potatoes
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 package (16 ounces) Velveeta process cheese, cubed
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup sour cream

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, cook and crumble beef until no longer pink; drain and set aside. In same saucepan, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Saute onion, carrots, celery, basil and parsley until tender, about 10 minutes. Add potatoes, beef and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, until potatoes are tender, 10-12 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, melt remaining butter. Add flour; cook and stir until bubbly, 3-5 minutes. Add to soup; bring to a boil. Cook and stir 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Stir in cheese, milk, salt and pepper; cook until cheese melts. Remove from heat; blend in sour cream. Yield: 8 servings (2-1/4 quarts).

"Making this for the 2nd time!! I switch things around though for my family. I use 2 lbs ground beef, garlic instead of onion, turkey broth instead of chicken. I also diced 2 green peppers. My taters are gold ones and smaller so I peeled diced 6. Topped with diced bacon before serving-adds a smoky flavor.

We use this as a dip soup!! Mmm the best with scoop chips. I make for supper main night then put leftovers in qt canning jars.
Hubs had this at a truck stop one time and says mine is hands down the best soup ever!!"

Changed it by using a can of evaporated milk instead of the regular milk, used just over a pound of hamburger, 2 cans of chicken broth, 2 cups of shredded cheddar and 1 cup velveeta, and did not use the flour thickener. It was very tasty and hearty. Will make again."

"Tastes like a grilled Cheeseburger. Different & easy, good over egg noodles. The potatoes seemed strange at first, but then they blended in & reminded me of burger & fries. I tweaked it. Tripled the beef & added better than boullion beef flavor, a cup each of veggies, bumped up the spices, Campbells beef consomm? & French onion soup plus two cans of water. Left the potato amount the same & added more cheese. Left out the sour cream since it tasted good as is. All you need is crusty bread & a pickle!"

"This is a very tasty, easy soup recipe! I did make a few changes (for my preferences). Instead of ground beef I used ground turkey and instead of the Velveeta I used 4 ounces cream cheese and 8 ounces shredded sharp cheddar. Because ground turkey really does not require draining I cooked the ground turkey and veggies all at the same time. Also, if you like condiments on your burgers you can always squeeze a little bit into each individual serving (might be a great suggestion for making this recipe even more kid friendly). I found that Dijon mustard works really well. This will be a regular go-to recipe for me."

Such as using 93% lean ground beef, using skim milk, omitting the sour cream. I chose to use real cheese (Colby and pepper jack) vs processed velveeta. I also decided make it in the crockpot 5 hours. We basically saut?ed up the meat, vegetables and made the roux then added everything except the dairy into the slow cooker and a half hour before serving placed the milk and cheeses in the crockpot. It turned out great. It is very creamy, flavorful ,and satisfying on a cold day."

"I hate ranking this recipe because I did not make this strictly according to the directions because I wanted to make it a bit healthier and I eliminated the meat. However, I have no doubt that had I used the flour and butter roux it would have made the soup even richer and tastier. I was happy to find a cheese soup recipe that didn't use broccoli since one of my family members doesn't like it. I did double the recipe and it was very good! That being said here's what I did: I put the onion, celery and carrots and 1 cup of broth in the soup pot and simmered for 10 minutes. I then added the potatoes, the rest of the broth, the basil and parsley and simmered for another 10 minutes, until the potatoes were done. To thicken the soup, I then mixed some chicken broth and cornstarch in a cup and added that to the broth/veggies mix, stirring constantly. I heated the milk and Velveeta in the microwave, stirring occasionally until the cheese was mostly melted. I added the cheese/milk mix after the potatoes were cooked. I did not add any salt and I did not use the sour cream. I ended up with a delicious soup that was a bit healthier and I served it in homemade bread bowls. Very, very good!"

"This is a nice hearty soup for a cold winter night. My husband isn't a huge soup fan and he went for seconds. I did change it up a bit because I won't use processed cheese. I made the rue in a saucepan instead of small skillet and then added the milk to it. I then added about 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese to the milk mixture and whisked it in so there where no lumps. Then I added that to the beef and potato mixture in the 3qt saucepan. I mixed everything together and then added another cup of shredded cheddar cheese. I also added 2 tbsp. of Dijon mustard to give it more of a burger feel. I also used reduced sodium broth and didn't add the added salt at the end of the recipe in order to keep sodium to a minimum."

I used 1-1/2 cups Cheddar cheese, 1-1/2 cups milk or half and half cream & used 1/4 cup Ranch dressing instead of sour cream. I found that the adjustments worked out for me! Perhaps, dicing the potatoes IS better-I'd chunked them, instead! At any rate, I really liked this recipe! If I don't have basil available, I've used Italian seasoning instead! I really enjoy the blend of Italian seasoning anyway and have turned to it when I season dishes calling for oregano or basil!

"Two granddaughter were here for the week-end ages 13 and 16. We all loved it. 13 year old asked me to make it for her birthday and suddenly remembered her birthday is past this year, so she said I mean for Christmas. LOL I left out the mushrooms but the package of ground beef that I had thawed out was a little over 1 pound and it was wonderful. Thank you"

"Fantastic! I made the very same version of this soup, only without the sour cream before. I hadn't thought to add that in but it really made a wonderful difference in the taste! So glad i came across this recipe!"

"I have made this over and over now. It's one of my family's favorites! My daughter now keeps the beginnings of it in her freezer so she can throw it together quickly when she gets home from work."

"I will definitely make this soup again. Very tasty and filling. I used Mexican blend cheese instead of Velveeta. Made a big pot on a cold day and gave some to my neighbors. We all loved it. Definitely a keeper!"

"I was looking for more flavor in this soup since this recipe was given such high ratings. Our family rated it as good, but average in flavor, so I won't be making it again."

"Good kid friendly recipe. I agree with the other poster, about leaving out the sour cream. It did give it a Stroganoff flavor. I didn't have parsley and basil so I used Italian seasoning instead and it turned out just fine."

"This soup should be called potato -cheeseburger soup because there are SO many potatoes. They are very good though. It's true that kids LOVE this soup. Mine did and asked for it all week. Fortunately, I made a double batch. I think the Velveeta made it kid friendly. This recipe is a keeper in our house."
