Farmhouse Cheeseburger Soup


  • 1 lb. Ground Beef
  • 1 cup Diced Onions
  • 2 cloves Minced Garlic
  • 1/2 cup Diced Celery
  • 1 cup Diced Carrots
  • 4 cups Chicken or Beef Broth
  • 2 cups Diced Potatoes
  • 1/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 4 tbsp. Butter (divided into 2 parts)
  • 1 1/2 cups Milk
  • 2 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper (optional)
  • Salt and Pepper (to taste)
  • Optional Garnishes: Chopped pickles, diced tomatoes, crumbled bacon, or fresh parsley


  1. Brown the Beef: Cook the ground beef in a large pot over medium heat until browned. Drain off excess fat.

  2. Sauté Vegetables: Add 2 tablespoons of butter to the pot. Sauté onions, garlic, carrots, and celery until they start to soften.

  3. Add Broth and Potatoes: Stir in the broth and diced potatoes. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10-12 minutes.

  4. Roux for Thickening: In a separate saucepan, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Add the flour and cook, constantly stirring, for 3-5 minutes to create a roux.

  5. Combine and Cook: Gradually add the milk to the roux while stirring to keep it smooth. Add this mixture to the soup pot. Cook and stir until the soup is thick and bubbly.

  6. Cheese Time: Reduce heat to low. Stir in the shredded cheese until melted and smooth. Season with salt and pepper and Cayenne.

  7. Final Touches: Serve hot, garnished with your choice of toppings like chopped pickles, diced tomatoes, crumbled bacon, or fresh parsley.
