Cheeseburger Soup Recipe

Not gonna lie, I loves me a good cheeseburger! But if I ate burgers as often as I’d like to, not only would I be pushing maximum density, but I’d also have cholesterol much higher than I already do.

I’ve found a good easy weeknight meal doesn’t have to include a drive-thru (and the calories that go with it).

This is my favorite soup recipe given to me by one of my besties, Michelle.

I just put everything in the slow cooker, set it to 8 hours on low and it cooks until I return to the kitchen.


½ pound ground beef

¾ c. onion, chopped

¾ c. carrots, shredded

¾ c. celery, diced

1 tsp. basil

1 tsp. parsley

4 tbsp. butter, divided

3 c. chicken broth

4 c. diced potatoes

¼ c. flour

8 oz. American cheese, sliced

1 ½ c. milk

¾ tsp. salt

¼ tsp. pepper

¼ c. sour cream


Brown beef in saucepan with onion and seasonings. Put in crockpot. Add broth, butter, milk, flour, potatoes and carrots. Cook all day.

One-half hour before serving, add cheese slices and continue to heat. Fifteen minutes prior to serving, stir in sour cream.


I like to serve with crusty garlic bread.
