The Magical Powers of Cheeseburger Soup

Pass the cheeseburger soup, please. Yes, you read that right! This soup is recognized around culinary circles as brining fun back to the dinner table. It is a meal in a bowl and sizzles with flavor and flare. It is perfect for the family and just what the Chef ordered to serve at your next dinner party. The only problem is do you eat it with a fork or do you sip it with a spoon. It is thick just like chowder.

The base for this fantastic cuisine is 8 ounces cheese, 1 1/2 cups milk, 1/4 cup flour, 6 tablespoons butter, 3 1/2 cups beef/chicken broth, and one full pound of lean ground beef. Cheeseburger soup is like a blank palette, ready for your creative cooking tweaks. You can add carrots, onions, olives, bacon, potatoes, celery, garlic, and seasonings such as basil, parsley, cilantro, black or crushed red pepper and a dash of salt. Simmered with one half cup beer and this soup is over the top in the flavor category.

Have no fear because this chowder is simple and easy to prepare. All it requires is some very basic kitchen skills. There is a little browning of the ground beef, a modest amount of chopping the vegetables of your choice, a melting of the cheese and finally gentle simmering of the savory, simple concoction. Serving suggestions for this soup can include garlic bread, a fresh chopped salad, deviled eggs, homemade cheesy pita chips, parmesan croutons and so on. The combinations are endless and only limited by your taste buds.

Cheeseburger soup is the ultimate in the comfort food category. It has been said that this meal in a bowl possesses magically properties. This cannot be claimed or denied. Some have sworn a small cup helped them win a marathon. Others have said that all it took was one bowl and they biked one hundred miles. Others declared one sip and their cough disappeared instantly. If it cannot break the curse of a cold that may lie deep in your system, it certainly can feed your soul and give you super strength. If nothing else, it will definitely get you out of bed and to the kitchen table! In addition, you thought soup was boring.
