Cheeseburger Soup Recipe

This recipe is so marvelous on a cool fall evening. Every fall, I have a lil dilemma...  Mr. Liv doesn't like potato soup, and I love potato soup! Buuuut- Mr. Liv loves this soup, and it has potatoes in it! So if I'm feeling like potato soup (or eating it rather), this recipe is a perfect compromise that be both love! :)

Cheeseburger Soup

  • Ingredients
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion (optional)
  • 3/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 3/4 cup diced celery
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 4 cups diced peeled potatoes (1-3/4 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) process cheese (Velveeta), cubed
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup sour cream

  • Directions

  • In a 3-qt. saucepan, brown beef; drain and set aside. In the same saucepan, saute the onion, carrots, celery, basil and parsley in 1 tablespoon butter until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Add the broth, potatoes and beef; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  • Meanwhile, in a small skillet, melt remaining butter. Add flour; cook and stir for 3-5 minutes or until bubbly. Add to soup; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Stir in the cheese, milk, salt and pepper; cook and stir until cheese melts. Remove from the heat; blend in sour cream. Yield: 8 servings (2-1/4 quarts).

(I actually got this recipe from a friend who got it from her sister-in-law, who got it from Taste of Home!)

Enjoy! :)
