Sunday Supper {Cheeseburger Soup}

Fall arrived in the South this weekend and it was glorious!!! We enjoyed the high school homecoming game Friday, dance Saturday and sports Sunday – all outside! I was inspired by the chill in the air to serve a hearty, homey soup for our Sunday Supper. This was a HUGE hit and is something I will definitely make again.

Cheeseburger Soup


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 3/4 cup diced celery
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 4 tablespoons butter divided
  • Box chicken broth (4 cups)
  • 4 cups peeled and diced potatoes (3-4 potatoes, I used extra!)
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 16-oz block Velveeta cheese, cubed
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • Optional toppings: bacon, diced tomato, shredded cheese


  • In a large soup pot, brown the ground beef, drain and set aside.
  • In the same pot add 1 T butter, onion, carrots, celery, basil and parsley. Saute until tender.
  • Add the broth, potatoes and ground beef and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  • In small skillet melt remaining butter (3 T) and add the flour. Cook and stir for 3-5 minutes or until bubbly. Add to the soup and bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low.
  • Stir in the cheese, milk, salt and pepper. Cook and stir until cheese melts. Remove from heat and blend in sour cream.
  • Add desired toppings for serving.

I threw together a Halloween table setting while supper simmered. Honey cut a hole in the dining room wall looking for a leak (there isn’t one) and that room is currently a disaster.

I hope you enjoyed a lovely weekend!!
