Cheeseburger Soup


Who says you can’t have soup in summer?  It seems it’s an unwritten rule that one cannot have hot soup when it’s hot outside. I disagree.

This soup is rich and satisfying, a stick to your ribs dish. Pair with a salad, and you have a wonderful meal.  Sure you can always balance it out even further with a bread or roll, but it’s not necessary.Delicious Cheeseburger Soup

I can’t remember where I found this recipe at, but I do remember the first time I made it. I loved it and so did LittleChef2! I wondered why I had never heard of this delicious soup before.  Growing up we always had meat and potatoes for dinner, and I do mean always! This soup easily qualifies for that and it’s quick and easy.  My two favorite things!

I tinkered with the recipe and here’s my take on it. I hope you try it out even if the thermostat is heating up!
