Well with all the cold weather Sunday seemed like a great soup day...then I saw a dip recipe for cheeseburger dip and suddenly had a craving for cheeseburger soup!

Happened to buy a new pot to us on an auction this year but hadn't really used it much till lately, really like it!

Burger browned with some onion

Drain the burger and set aside, then add butter, onion, carrots, parsley, basil...left the celery out...my wife doesn't care for cooked celery

Add chicken broth, taters, and burger back into pot...bring to a boil, reduce heat and cover and simmer until taters are tender.

In another pan melt butter and add flour to make a roux, then add to soup

Stir in Velveeta cheese, milk, salt and pepper to taste until cheese melts

We did add some bacon bits, no pics of course...but next time I'm thinking a lb would be a good start! Also some onion, garlic powder and some sazon goya seasoning. Removed from heat and added 1/2 cup sour cream.

Only thing missing was some homemade buns but it was still dang good! And I wanted more cheese!

Definitely hit the spot! My wife actually added ketchup and mayo to her bowl...boy did I give her a look! Still doesn't sound good but on bowl #2 I did as well...she wasn't wrong...it was good!

Take care and Merry Christmas all!

On a side note...ya think our puppy likes popcorn? She sits and waits for it to get done popping lol!

That soup looks awesome! I'd take a big bowl of that any day. You can keep the snow!

Dave
Thanks Dave, I appreciate it! It really filled the craving. Good thing we doubled the batch! With them calling for 5 to 7 inches this week also, - 40 windchills, and wind. I could send some snow down to you lol!

Your puppy and 2 of our cats were identical! All they needed to hear either was the cupboard door to open and the drag of the air popper or the other one was just the sound of the pour of the frozen corn! Meow!!!!

Mighty fine looking soup.

Where did you get that Dutch pot?
 
1 ) Soup sounds and looks fantastic
2 ) Snow looks pretty but hate it at the same time
3 ) Love the added cheese on the soup
4 ) Cute that the pup waits for the popcorn
5 ) Mona Hates it when I bring my Dewalt power tools into the kitchen

6 ) Merry Christmas to you and yours Ryan

Great looking soup! Gonna book mark this for sure.
Like others have said....The snow looks great for a day or two. But this southern boy would freeze to death.

Thanks Rick, I appreciate it!

Bought the pot on an auction this year...says Club aluminum on the bottom, came in a box with this one and some other roaster pans.

Was sitting in box in the garage until recently...used it for making scalloped potatoes and ham.

Thank you David!
Really love that pot. Our 3 year old Dobie turns her nose up at popcorn when it pops and lands on the floor...no butter, no salt lol!

Thanks Tbern! As you well know soup is in order lately...especially with the weather. As it was brought up in your soup thread...and because I mentioned it to my wife...wonder how changing from chicken to beef stock would change the flavor of this? I think leaving your soup the same is better but this one...might have to try it.

The dog waiting for the popcorn cracks me up. When we still had out mini dachshund Simon he would do the same thing.
Thanks Norman, I appreciate it! We sure do love her...only about 7 months. She's a nut and makes me laugh! Even when she comes back into the house looking like this...

That was 40 minutes of arts and crafts time removing that.

Thank you Keith! My day's up...who wants it? :emoji_laughing: . Took me longer to move snow after our first one than all of last winter!

Nice work Ryan . I might be inclined to put a couple dill pickle chips in my bowl .
Thanks Rich! Still have some left in the freezer...might give that a try as well!

Great looking soup! Gonna book mark this for sure.

Jim
Thank you Jim! Ya kind of get used to it...not that it's enjoyable lol!

Another comfort food classic
Thank you! Probably gonna see alot more with the weather! You're probably sitting on a beach drinking margaritas!

Another comfort food classic
Thanks Colin! It's appreciated!

Ryan
 
Simply Fantastic!!
Thanks Colin! Got it right this time!

Thank looks great Ryan! We had a St. Bernard that did the same thing. He has absolutely bonkers over it!
They sure do like it! Kinda like vultures when there's 3 of them!
And thank you Steve, I appreciate it!
