Winter is almost coming to an end, but I still have soups I want to try! Oh well, there will still be a few cool spring nights, so I am going to keep going; hope you don’t mind This week for #SundaySupper Angie from Big Bears Wife is hosting a “Cheese, Cake, or Cheesecake” event. So we have a very wide variety of recipes for you today!
Those of you who know me will be shocked that I picked the cheese part of this event. But I made this soup last weekend, and I just had to share. Last Sunday we were experiencing a rare blizzard in Colorado. We get snow, not a ton, but we do get snow. When we do get snow, it never blows around though. That is very strange coming from the midwest. Anyway, we woke up Sunday morning to blowing snow, and not able to see the houses behind us very well. I immediately determined it was a soup day. Unfortunately I need to go to the grocery store, so it was going to be a soup day with what I had in the house!
My 7 year old raved about this soup, and ate the leftovers like crazy. I actually served them in bread bowls, which at first he thought was really strange, but turned out to be one of his favorites. Cheeseburger soup is a quick soup to make, even on a weeknight. In about 30 minutes you can have this on the table. You can garnish it with whatever you would normally put on a cheeseburger. I put a little bit of crumbled bacon and more cheese. Crisp raw onion, or diced avocado would be a great option.
