Cheeseburger Soup

The weather here has been basically parallel to Antarctica. The winds have lowered the temps below the negative mark day after day. The best way to battle that is to make soup. Yummy soup that warms you from the inside out. I found this recipe and made it last night. It was so good I had leftovers for lunch. If your weather is anything like ours this may be the ticket to warming up from the inside out!

Cheeseburger Soup
1 lb ground beef
3/4 C chopped onion
3/4 C chopped carrots
3/4 C chopped celery
1 tsp basil
1 tsp parsley
4 T butter, divided
3 C chicken broth
4 C peeled and diced potatoes
1/4 C flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 1/2 C milk
2 C shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 C sour cream

In your large soup pot brown the ground beef and then remove it from the pot setting aside. In the samepot saute the onion, carrot, celery, basil and parsley with 1 T butter until the vegetables are tender. Add the broth, potatoes and beef and bring to a boil. Simmer until the potatoes are tender.

In a small saucepan. Melt the remaining 3 T butter and then add the flour, salt and pepper. Cook and stir until bubbly about 3-5 minutes. Then add the milk slowly stirring it in with a whisk. Simmer until it thickens and then add to the large soup pot with the vegetables and beef. Simmer soup or about 5-10 more minutes.

Turn off the heat and add the cheese and sour cream and stir until completely melted. Serve!
