This is comfort food in a bowl. It is full of ground beef, potatoes, carrots, onions and cheese. It is like a cheeseburger only as a soup. I have a crock pot recipe for Crock Pot Cheeseburger Casserole that does too. In fact, it is one of my favorite crock pot recipes.
You could also make this soup in the crock pot, I’d brown the beef first and then just add everything but the cheese, milk, flour and water to it. Cook for 4 hours on high or 8 on low. At the end stir in the cheese, flour and water. When that is melted add the milk. You’re also going to see I used Simply Potatoes for the potatoes in this recipe. I really like their texture in the soup when it is finished. They’re not going to melt away in this soup. Also you won’t have to peel potatoes and cut them up. I also like the spices and garlic these potatoes have, they add the perfect amount of flavor.
- 1 lb. ground beef

What a great way to sneak in some vegetables for your kids! My son loves hamburgers, so turning it into a much healthier soup would definitely make me happy! Best of all, all of the ingredients are stuff I regularly keep on hand, with the exception of celery!
Thanks for the recipe!
