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!

    this was my first try at cheeseburger soup. This was the one recipe that I had all the ingredients on hand, to my happy surprise, mine can out better than was Zoup sells. I made mine with Velveta and added a can of petite dice tomatoes. Easiest part was having a $1 bag of Kroger from mirepoix onion, celery and carrots, so easy peasy tossed them in the power pressure cooker after browning the burger. Tossed everything else and set the cooker to slow cook for 4 hours. Amazing amazing.

    Delicious! one of our favorite recipes for the last 7 years or so. We use homemade bone broth and it is always fantastic flavor combos

  3. Made this today on a very cold day when our furnace had gone out, perfect for a cold day and filling. I will definitely make again!

    1. In the original stovetop recipe 1 tablespoon of the butter was used to saute the vegetables. I guess in the Crock-Pot version you’re just going to take it down to three tablespoons for the roux.

  4. Yes I’m back home from Pompano Beach Florida back in Baltic Connecticut am very happy with all your recipies but need the stores to show sales in my area zip code 06330 thank you keep up the great work
