Cheeseburger Soup

Ingredients:

  • 3 potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated (or diced)
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 TBS beef bouillon granules (about 4 cubes)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 pound ground beef, browned and drained
  • 2 1/2 c milk, divided
  • 3 TBS all-purpose flour
  • 8 oz Cheddar Cheese, cubed
  • Top with 4 slices of bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled (Optional)

Directions

  1. Brown ground beef. Drain off excess grease and set aside
  2. Combine all ingredients listed before beef in the ingredient list in a large saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  3. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender. Stir in beef and only 2 cups of milk.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together flour and remaining 1/2 cup milk until smooth.
  5. Gradually whisk milk mixture into soup.
  6. Bring to a boil; cook until thick and bubbly, stirring constantly – be careful not to burn it! Reduce heat to low; add cheese and stir until completely melted.
  7. Top with bacon if you’d like.
