Cheeseburger Soup ~anything that tastes like a Cheesburger has to be good!

 

Takes about 30 minutes total to cook, and this was very appetizing.  I will be honest; I am enjoying a bowl right now for lunch and heated up it has lost none of its appeal. Still very flavorful and lip-smacking! This made probably enough to feed 6 or 7 people.  I would serve with a warm crusty baguette.

What you will need;

¾ pound ground beef

2 medium onions (chopped)

1 28oz can of diced tomatoes

2 cloves garlic minced

¾ cup celery diced (I used about 5 stalks)

4 cups of beef broth (if it is getting to thick you can add more, and if you don’t have more beef broth; water and or chicken broth will work just as well)

5 medium potatoes cubed into small bites

1/3 cup all purpose flour

1 cup of milk

1/3 cup sour cream

2 tsp olive oil

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Heat the oil in a pot and brown the beef over medium high heat break up the beef in the pan as it browns.DO NOT drain the fat, once the meat has browned add the onion, celery, garlic and potatoes and cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes before stirring in the flour.

Add the celery, onion, garlic and potatoes to the meat mixture

Add the flour and coat evenly

Evenly coat the mixture and cook for 2 minutes before stirring in the beef broth and tomatoes. Reduce the heat to medium and boil for ten minutes or until the potatoes are tender.  Make sure to keep stirring as it will stick to the bottom ruining your creation.

Add the beef broth and tomatoes to the mixture and boil until the potatoes are tender

Once the potatoes are tender turn off the heat and add the sour cream, once the sour cream has been incorporated into the base add the milk.  Do not bring back to boiling after adding the milk, if you need to keep warm on low that is fine. Add the cheese reserving a small amount to top each bowl.

 

Enjoy your cheeseburger soup!!

Bon Appétit
