A few weekends ago, I made lunch for my kiddo’s youth group. The boys requested my Cheeseburger Soup. It is a favorite in this house. But since I changed up my Potato Soup a bit and now make it with frozen hashbrowns, I thought I would do the same with my cheeseburger soup and see how it turned it.
Well, since I’m posting it here, you probably already know… it was great! We all loved it and it took a small fraction of the time it used to take because I didn’t have to peel any potatoes!! YAY!
So, here’s the recipe for this scrumptious, yet simple Cheeseburger Soup.
- 1½ pound ground meat - cooked ( I use ground turkey)
- 28-32 oz. frozen hashbrowns
- 2 large onions chopped (could use onion flakes too)
- 1 cup diced celery
- 1¼ cup shredded carrots
- 2 TBSP parsley flakes
- 28 oz chicken broth (I use low sodium)
- 12 oz American Cheese
- 1 pkg of dry cheese mix that came in a boxed macaroni & cheese (optional - it adds a little extra flavor and some coloring)
- Place meat, veggies, and parsley into a large pot on stove.
- Cover ingredients with chicken broth (if broth doesn't cover all the ingredients, add water until just covered)
- Cook on medium until veggies are tender when poked with a fork.
- Stir in American Cheese and dry cheese packet.
- Allow cheese to melt thoroughly.
- Serve immediately.
Give it a try, I bet it will be a big hit in your house too!
