Recipe #22: Cheeseburger Soup

Posted on Feb 26 2013 - 12:00am by Markell

A friend of mine sent me a recipe for this one. It was pretty good and really easy. I made it a few days ago, so hopefully I can remember exactly what I did…

For the recipe, you need: 
half an onion
1 lb ground beef
3 or 4 carrots
3 or 4 celery stalks
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried parsley
4 tablespoons butter
3 cups chicken broth
4 cups potatoes
1/2 cup flour
8 ounces cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cup milk 
3/4 teaspoon salt
pepper to taste 

First,  I browned about a pound of hamburger meat with some onions and green peppers. If I made this again, I probably wouldn’t use the green peppers again.

Earlier in the day, I had prepped this meal, so I had cut up celery, carrots, and peeled and diced potatoes.

After the meat was cooked, I removed it from the pan. In that same pan, I sauteed the celery, carrots, and parsley in butter. After about 10 minutes, I added broth, seasoning, and potatoes. I covered it and cooked it until the potatoes were tender. Once this happened, I added the meat again. I then added the flour to the mixture. Then, I reduced the heat and added milk and cheese. Then, I salted and peppered to taste. It was yummy 🙂

    We love this meal! My recipe is just a bit different and uses Velveeta. I’ve made it with and without, using regular cheese.

      I love the taste of velveeta cheese in everything… I can’t quite handle cooking with it though. It tastes amazing, just looks nasty haha.
