- Ground beef, ground turkey, or even ground chicken
- Onion, diced
- Garlic, minced
- Italian seasoning
- Carrot, diced
- Potatoes – peeled and diced
- Water, chicken broth, or beef broth
- Ground pepper
- Shredded cheddar cheese – sharp cheddar cheese, swiss cheese, pepper jack, Velveeta cheese, or cheese of choice!
Begin by cooking the ground beef for 3-5 minutes. In a large saucepan, brown the beef with onion over medium heat. Drain the excess grease from the beef if necessary (really lean beef may not need to be drained).
Next, add the garlic, parsley, and Italian seasoning, and continue to cook, stirring regularly. Add in the carrots, potato, and water or broth.
Cover the cheeseburger soup and let it cook until the potatoes are tender (about 10-12 minutes). Do you like extra veggies in your soup? Now is the time to add additional vegetables, like celery cauliflower, etc.
While the soup is cooking at a low simmer, combine the milk and cornstarch in a separate bowl, stirring until the lumps are dissolved. Uncover the soup, and add milk mixture, salt, and pepper.
Melt in the cheese until the soup is thick and creamy! Some people like to serve the soup with extra cheese, sour cream, bacon, or sliced green onion on top. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Crock Pot Recipe
Place potatoes, onions, carrots, Italian seasoning, and parsley in a large crock pot. Pour the broth over the vegetables. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high heat for 4 to 5 hours (until potatoes are tender).
About 45 minutes before serving, add in the browned and drained ground beef, milk mixture, and cheese. Continue to cook until the cheese is melted and the soup is creamy!
