Cheese burger soup

Category: Soups

 Ingredients List

  • For the soup:
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 15-ounce can corn
  • 2 cubes Dorot or Pop & Cook Garlic (2 cloves garlic)
  • 1 cube Dorot or Pop & Cook Basil (1 teaspoon finely chopped basil)
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 4 potatoes, peeled and diced into bite sized chunks
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 8 ounces sharp cheddar, diced into small cubes
  • For the croutons:
  • 2 cups cubed French bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 Dorot or Pop & Cook Basil (1 teaspoon finely diced basil)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder


To make the soup:
In a large stock pot, brown the ground beef over medium heat until cooked through. Drain the fat, stir in the seasoning salt to coat the beef, and set the beef aside.
Add 1 tablespoon of butter to the bottom of the stock pot set over medium heat. Drain the can of corn and add it to the stock pot. Add in the 2 cubes of garlic and 1 cube of basil. Stir until the cubes have dissolved and the corn is heated through.
Add the chicken stock to the pan along with the potatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cover. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
In a small saucepan, melt the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter. Whisk in the flour and cook for 2 minutes, whisking constantly. Add the flour mixture to the pot of soup, along with the milk and cheddar. Stir to combine and continue cooking over medium-low heat until the cheese has melted and the soup has thickened, stirring occasionally.Add the hamburger meat back to the soup and continue cooking until warmed through.
Top each bowl of soup with a few croutons before serving.
To make the croutons:
While the soup is heating, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Melt the butter in the skillet with the basil and garlic powder. (We're using garlic powder instead of a garlic cube, because fresh garlic may burn while we're toasting the bread.) Add the bread cubes to the pan and toss to coat.
Cook over medium heat until browned and crispy one one side, about 3 minutes. Flip each cube over and continue cooking until browned and crispy. Repeat to brown each side of the bread.
