This is one tasty, hearty soup. Excuse my terrible photography skills. I am a work in progress.
Please serve Cheese Burger soup and any other meal at your table with The Perfect Dinner Roll.
Every one at our house loves this soup. Even Rowdy Jr. the pickiest eater next to my good friend in Mississippi likes this soup. Now I am not picking on my friend....just givin' her a shout out so that she knows we still love her California. This is another great recipe from Lynn's Kitchen Adventures.
- 1 pound hamburger
- 1 red onion, diced fine
- 2 teaspoon dried basil
- 2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 6 cups chicken broth (I use Better Than Bouillon)
- 8 cups diced peeled potatoes
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 3 cups milk
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup sour cream
In a 5-qt. Dutch oven or similar pot, brown beef with onion, parsley and basil. Drain off excess fat. Add broth and potatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, melt butter. Add flour, making a roux; cook and stir for 3-5 minutes or until bubbly. Add about a cup of milk and whisk until smooth. Add to soup pot and bring to a boil; boil 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low and add remaining milk, cheese, and salt and pepper to taste. Once this is mixed well, remove from heat and add in sour cream and stir until melted and well combined.
