A few years ago, I hosted a Soup Swap party.  It’s very similar to a holiday Cookie Exchange but instead of swapping cookies, you exchange soups.  This is one of my favorite ways to connect with my friends over food.

I wanted to make a unique soup that no one had tried before and this recipe for Cheeseburger Soup was born.

It turned out great!  I ended up making a double batch so that I had enough to swap with everyone else at the party.  I love when I can easily double a recipe – it’s perfect to stash some in the freezer for a night when I don’t feel like cooking.

Cheeseburger Soup Recipe

This recipe is loaded with lots of meaty flavor.  The base is full of aromatics – like celery, carrots and onions.   To boost the flavor even more, I add some of my homemade Burger Seasoning Blend to the Cheeseburger Soup recipe.

This is the blend that I always use when making burgers so I figured it would be perfect in this soup.

Tips for Making this Recipe for Cheeseburger Soup

  • If you’re short on time, skip the prep stage by buying pre-chopped veggies.  Many grocery stores sell veggies already chopped in the produce department.
  • If you like to plan ahead, use ground beef that you’ve already browned and frozen.  It’s a great timesaver.
  • I like to make double batches of this soup and freeze half for another meal.

Expert Tips

  • Chopped Vegetables: If you’re short on time, skip the prep stage by buying pre-chopped veggies.  Many grocery stores sell veggies already chopped in the produce department.
  • Freeze: I like to make double batches of this soup and freeze half for another meal.
  • Heavy Cream: If your soup is too thin, thicken it with some heavy cream.
  • Toppings: Add some chopped green onions to the keto friendly meal. Instead of bacon top the soup with fresh herbs.
  • Make it Spicy: Add some red pepper flakes or hot sauce to the soup.
  • Double the Recipe: Feeding a crowd? We've doubled the recipe with great success.
