This Cheeseburger Soup Recipe Is Like a Delicious Burger In a Bowl

While visiting relatives for the weekend, I made this easy, delicious cheeseburger soup recipe for dinner. We all just loved it! Just imagine your favorite cheeseburger baked into a soup. This creamy cheeseburger soup recipe has the addition of potatoes, so it fills you up nicely (think of it as fries on the side!).

To make this easy, cheesy soup recipe you will need butter, ground beef, onion, carrots, celery, dried basil, parsley flakes, potatoes, chicken broth, all-purpose flour, milk, cheddar cheese and sour cream. The ground beef soup cooks up on the stovetop in about 30 minutes.

We served this warm cheesy soup with a side of lovely sourdough and it hit the spot! This cheeseburger soup would also be delicious with a simple lettuce and tomato salad on the side with homemade ranch dressing.

Recipe Notes

  • If you use very lean ground meat, feel free to add 1 tablespoon of butter with the meat and vegetables.
  • You can substitute 2 teaspoons Italian seasonings in place of the dried basil and parsley.
  • You can use grated cheese instead of cubes. Start with 1 1/2 cups and see if you need more.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. In a large soup pot or dutch oven on medium heat, brown beef, onion, carrots and celery. Cook until onions are soft and meat is brown, about 6 to 8 minutes.
  2. Add basil and parsley, potatoes and broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until potatoes are fork tender, about 15 minutes.
  3. While the potatoes cook, melt butter in a saucepan on medium. Add flour and whisk until blended.
  4. Add milk slowly and continue to stir for about 3 to 5 minutes, or until the mixture is thickened.
  5. When the potatoes are tender, add the milk to the soup pot and stir.
  6. Add cheese and stir until melted.
  7. Mix in the sour cream
  8. Ladle into soup bowls and enjoy!
