Thick and Creamy Cheeseburger Soup

Nothing says Fall like a thick and creamy soup. Our cheeseburger soup will leave you satisfied and warm!The cooler weather of Fall begs us to stay inside where its warm and stay snuggled up under a blanket. Preferably by the fire. At least that’ s the way it is for me. 

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.

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.

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?

    The idea of ground beef in soup used to rub me the wrong way, but I’m really warming up to it! It’s tasty and perfect for stretching your meat a little. Great post. 🙂

      I was the same way! I think that is why I am so passionate about it being a thicker and creamier soup. Runny soup with beef rubs me the wrong way 😉

    I make a cheeseburger soup that is very similar to this. I love it, but my husband always complains about the carrots (“Cheeseburgers don’t have carrots in them”). I’m glad to see yours has carrots, too!

    This looks so good, I have a huge bag of beef tenderloin left from a catering and this would be perfect! I am pinning this. I agree, I hate being cold for months on end, soup is the ticket, warming you from the inside out! Thanks for the recipe!

    Well! I don’t think I’ve ever heard of cheeseburger soup, but I’m thinking it’s right up my 8 yr old boy cub’s alley!. Going to have to pin this and see what his royal pickiness says.

    Found you from the Making Your Home Sing linkup. Thanks for this recipe, and have a blessed day!
