Cheeseburger Soup – Your favorite summer time sandwich in a warm and comforting soup. Top with bacon, cheese and your other favorite burger toppings for a delicious dinner!

Soup just might be the best and most comforting meal once the weather turns cold.  It can be a soup that comes together in just minutes like our favorite Wonton Soup.  

Or it can sit in the crock pot or on the stove and simmer for hours.  Slow Cooker Chili is a hearty soup that will warm you up any chili night.

And what goes better with soup than bread.  It is pretty much half the reason I make any soup in the first place.  Red Lobster Biscuits are a hit with just about anything, so they are always a good idea.  But if you want something a little more traditional then these Soft Breadsticks are delicious!  

What You’ll Need

  • Ground Beef
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Chicken Broth
  • Tomato Sauce
  • All-Purpose Flour
  • Milk
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • Ketchup
  • Mustard
  • Salt & Pepper

All the flavors you love of your favorite summer Cheeseburger, but in a comforting winter soup form.

How to Make Cheeseburger Soup

  1. The first thing to do is start to brown you ground beef. In a large pot, break apart the ground beef until it starts to brown. Add in the onions and garlic and cook until the onions are soft and the beef is cooked. Drain away any grease if there is any.
  2. Mix in the Worcestershire sauce, chicken broth, and tomato sauce. Stir and bring everything to a simmer.
  3. In a liquid measuring cup whisk together the milk and flour until it is smooth. Slowly stir into the soup and simmer until the soup starts to thicken. 
  4. Add the cheese about 1/2 cup at a time so it melts evenly. Once all the cheese is added, stir in the ketchup, mustard, salt and pepper. Let the soup simmer for about 10 minutes.
  5. Serve hot topped with your favorite burger toppings.
