Cheeseburger Soup #SundaySupper


Cheeseburger Soup

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!

Cheeseburger Soup

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!

Cheeseburger Soup

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.

  11. I could go for a bowl of that on this very snowy cold day we are having. Looks delish!!

  12. Perfect for a winter day, and kids of course! It´s like all the things you like in soup form! Great recipe Erin

  13. That’s a good hearty soup for winter. It’s one I’m sure my husband would love. I swear cheeseburgers are his favorite meal. Since he likes soup I know this would be one for him (and me too).

  14. We seem to still be in the full force of winter here. What a fun soup, I think it would be universally appealing.

  15. I keep seeing cheeseburger soup everywhere and it looks so good and filling that I think it’s kismit that I try it soon!

  18. This sounds so darn good…and looks creamy and delicious! I love the cheeseburger flavor and think my kids would devour this, too.

  19. Looks and sounds delish! Will have to try it.

  20. I always add Worcestershire to burgers… great to see it here in your soup!

  21. This looks great! I wonder if I can get my kids to have it? Ok so thats just my excuse to try it for myself. lol!

  22. Oh your version looks fantastic as well. Seriously I think cheeseburger soup is my new favourite soup. Love it.

  23. Winter ending does put a crimp in our comfort eating style, doesn’t it! You’re right, there are so many good soups I’ve yet to try. Now, you’ve added another one to my list!

  24. Bookmarking this to make later!

  25. On the surface its so odd, but dang if it doesn’t sound delicious!

  26. Look at all of that glorious cheese and hearty meat. This is a winner! Pinned.

  27. Soup is one of those things I will eat year round regardless of how hot it gets outside. My husband isn’t too fond of it though however I think if I used the word cheeseburger he might suddenly become more interested.

  28. I add Worcestershire to burgers, too. This soup sounds sooo good!

  29. Lora @cakeduchess says:

    Fun to see Worcestershire in this comforting soup. I like your #SS theme this week. I would be leaning towards cheese as well. I know, I have so many soups I wanted to make and wish it would stay cooler here a bit longer;)

  30. Cheeseburger soup with bacon, oh yeah!

  31. This is a lovely recipe Erin. I would eat a boatload of this soup.

  32. Ooh, this sounds lovely! Cheeseburgers in a soup? This is a completely new concept to me, as a Brit. The pictures are drool-worthy.

  33. What a great idea! I’d love to try this out!

  34. I think even my “Soup is not a meal” hubby would be all over this one!

  35. Mmmmmmm!

  36. Thank you for the education about snow, Erin. I just thought snow fell period. My excuse: I’ve only lived in Southern California and in Tokyo – spots where snow is rarely seen. =)

    Anyway, I love your story about how your cheeseburger soup came to be. And when the kidlets give a thumbs up to a dinner or dessert, you know you’ve got a winner on your hands!

  37. I had never heard of cheeseburger soup until just a few weeks ago. Yours looks delicious!

  38. Cheeseburger in a hearty, comforting, slurpable form? You’re my hero! This looks absolutely delicious. It’s so dreary, rainy and cold in Vancouver, I wish I had a big pot of this for dinner tonight.

  39. Okay – my hubby would LOVE this soup! I need to make this for him soon. Looks very hearty!
