Friday Funday – Cheeseburger Soup

It’s Friday Funday

Enjoy this yummy soup on a cold winter day. Cornbread makes a nice complement to this delicious soup. (I was going to upload a photo of this delectable soup, but apparently I deleted the photo off my phone. Perfect excuse to make it again–real soon! My mouth is watering.)

 Cheeseburger Soup

½ pound ground beef
¾ cup chopped onion
¾ cup shredded carrots
¾ cup diced celery
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
4 tablespoons butter, divided
3 cups chicken broth
4 cups diced peeled potatoes (1 ¾ pounds)
¼ cup all-purpose flour
8 ounces process American cheese, cubed (Gouda may work as a substitute, but I haven’t tried it)
1 ½ cups milk
¾ teaspoon salt
¼ to ½ teaspoon pepper
¼ cup sour cream

In a 3-quart saucepan, brown beef; drain and set aside. In the same saucepan, sauté onion, carrots, celery, basil and parsley in 1 tablespoon butter until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Add broth, potatoes and beef; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Meanwhile, in a small skillet melt remaining butter. Add flour; cook and stir for 3-5 minutes or until bubbly. Add to soup; bring to a boil. Cook and stir 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Add cheese, milk, salt and pepper, cook and stir until cheese melts. Remove from the heat; blend in sour cream. Yield: 8 servings.

Come back in February for my next full week installment. The theme will be LOVE, of course.
