I LOVE soup in the winter! But, even Grandma's chicken noodle soup can only satisfy so many times. Then, I need something new. So, I got to thinking...Cheeseburger Soup! Let's take some of the great things about a juicy cheeseburger and put them into a soup. Oh, but let's also add veggies and go easy on some of the more calorie-dense ingredients! I don't need the nutritional content of an actual cheeseburger. I prefer my soups to be reasonably healthy.
The secret to a thick and creamy soup, without flour or cream, is potatoes. Tender potatoes, blended with warm broth makes a wonderfully creamy base. Some people may think there must be milk or cream! Think mashed potatoes. Using sweet potatoes in this recipe bumps up the flavor, nutrients, and cheesy color. But don't worry- there's some cheese! And ketchup too!
Next time, I'll add some bacon!
This depends on the quality and quantity of your ingredients. There are many versions where cheese and/or cream would be the main ingredients. This version uses sweet potatoes to provide creaminess and only a minimal amount of cheese. It's packed with vegetables and grass-fed ground beef, which qualify as healthy to many.
This healthy cheeseburger soup is thick and hearty, loaded with ground beef, carrots, celery, and sweet potatoes. The perfect comfort food for those cold-weather blues!
Welcome- I'm so grateful you're here!
