I’m not a big fan of the Fall season. You’re all gasping, I know!
I don’t like to be super cold for months so one of the best foods for to whip up for dinner is homemade soup. A thick, creamy warm bowl of soup warms up your whole body after a chilly day.
When you have soup on the menu and you’re freezing all day, you are more eager to make dinner knowing that it is going to be satisfying on many levels.
I love a nice creamy soup! I have few in my recipe book and today I want to share one with you guys.
Thick and Creamy Cheeseburger Soup
1lb ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1C carrots, chopped
1C celery, chopped
1tsp dried basil
1tsp dried parsley
2 cans of chicken broth
4 C potatoes, chopped
2C shredded cheddar
1 1/2C milk
1/4 sour cream
In a large pot, melt 1tbs of butter over medium heat; cook and stir vegetables for 5 minutes.
Add beef and cook until brown.
Stir in seasonings, chicken broth and potatoes. Bring to a boil, then simmer until potatoes are tender. about 10-12 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt the remainder of the butter and stir in flour. Add the milk, stirring until smooth. I find that a whisk works best.
Once potatoes are tender, slowly add the milk mixture, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil again and reduce heat to a simmer.
Stir in cheese.
When the cheese is melted, add the sour cream and heat thoroughly. DO NOT BOIL. You will have an curdled cheese mess on your hands.
Serve with some fresh bread and enjoy a warm dinner with your family!
I have tried a few cheeseburger soup recipes and this one has remained my favorite. In my mind, cheeseburger soup just says thick and creamy not thin and runny. The two ideas just clash for me.
This recipe will not disappoint if you share my way of thinking. And even if you don’t, you’ll still love it. I’m sure of it! It is bursting with flavor!
Your turn! Do you love a good bowl warm soup in the Fall? Have you tried cheeseburger soup before?
