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 whole 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).

Recipe Note


Test Kitchen Tips

  • Save on prep time by using frozen cubed hash brown potatoes in place of fresh.
  • To prevent soup from curdling, remove from the heat before adding sour cream.
  • Go all out! Serve in bread bowls with condiment skewers: Try cocktail onions and mini pickles.

I've had another cheeseburger soup recipe that had them and it was DELICIOUS! Who knew, right?! Leave out the basil. It makes this taste like a spaghetti sauce gone wrong.

    "I made this on a Sat. for 8 people. 19 yr. old grandson that doesn't eat veggies. ask if it had carrots in it! He went back for seconds and ask on Sun. if there was any left that he could have for supper on Mon. night. I didn't have basil or parsley so left out. Used 8 oz. shredded Mexican chees and 8 oz. shredded co jack instead of Velveeta. will be making this a lot this winter. I used a full pound of hamb. On Mon. I added a pint of home canned potato soup mix, a little more cheese and sour cream so we could have three bowls. Potato soup mix is: in a pint jar put 1/2 pint jar chopped potatoes, 1/4 pint sliced carrots, split the rest of the jar with a layer of chopped celery and chopped onions. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt and fill with water. Pressure can at 10 pounds for 20 minutes. This makes a pretty jar for a gift also. Put the instructions on it.

    To use heat soup mix with 1 Tablespoon butter or marg. and add one pint milk, check the salt and add pepper if you like. Heat but don't boil. If you need quarts just use the same proportions in a qt. jar with 1 teaspoon of salt and pressure at 10 lbs. for 25 minutes. You can also can just can potatoes or add onions to the potatoes for the same amount of time. These are handy to fry or add to soup."

The recipe is wonderful as written, however I occasionally change things up for a slightly different taste. My favourite is simply adding 1lb of ground beef (instead of 1/2 a lb) and a little Cajun Seasoning (Tony Chacheres). Or a can of Rotel Tomatoes for Queso Dip flavour (kids really liked this)."

    "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."

I used fresh rosemary, and thyme instead of basil. Really tasty. I also used white cheddar, in place of velveeta cheese. In addition to those changes, I did not have sour cream on hand, so I made a basic rue, as a thickener!"

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.

    "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!"

I'd used 1 lb. ground beef, 3/4 cup SLICED carrots, 4 cups potatoes, peeled and cut in chunks, rather than cubed. 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!
