Slow Cooker Cheeseburger Soup


This Cheeseburger Soup is my favorite soup on the blog.  It is also very popular and gets rave reviews every single time.  I don’t think I have ever had a bad comment about this delicious soup.  But I do get a lot of comments asking me if it can be made in the slow cooker.  I had to test it our for myself!

Me and my slow cooker are BFF’s.  Especially when it is busy around the holidays.  Who am I kidding.  It is always busy.  That is why I love using my slow cooker year round.  It was so nice to just throw all of the veggies and potatoes in this soup right in the slow cooker.  Let it cook all day and have a delicious hearty cheeseburger soup for dinner.  This soup was just as incredible in the slow cooker.  And I love making it because I am reminded why this soup is so good!  All of the goodness of a cheeseburger is packed right inside this soup and it is incredible.  Whether you make it in the slow cooker or on the stovetop, you have to experience all of the goodness of this soup for yourself!
