Here are some more fall comfort food recipes. Tuscan chicken mac and cheese, slow cooker beef gyros, or BBQ Turkey burgers.

Cheeseburger Soup

We eat a lot of ground beef, so I am always hunting for new ways to change things up. When fall arrives and the weather begins to get colder, soups are always in rotation.

What to Serve With Cheeseburger Soup

Essentially you can serve this as a meal in one, or pair with your favorite sides. A lot of the times I do a veggie try to go next to it to help lighten it up a little bit.

  • Crusty bread for dipping
  • Salad
  • Crisp veggies and dip on the side
  • Use chips or crackers to dip
  • Etc

Can I Use Ground Turkey In Replace of Beef

Go right ahead and swap out the ground beef with ground turkey if you would prefer. I prefer the flavor of beef but you can easily swap it out for turkey if you want a leaner meat.

What Is The Best Cheese To Use

Buy block cheese that you shred yourself. Buy a cheese grater, and then use your arms and shred up a block of cheese.

You will find bagged cheese has extra starches on the cheese to help prevent the cheese from sticking. So it will alter the texture of the cheese in your soup. So I highly recommend buying block cheese that you shred.

Topping Ideas For Soup

  • Sliced Green Onions or Diced Onions
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Bacon Crumbles
  • Pickles
  • Etc

Think about the condiments you put on cheeseburgers and consider trying it on this soup. I also love crackers in this soup, it adds even more flavor.

Can You Freeze Leftover Soup

Due to the dairy products in the soup you will find if you freeze and thaw it becomes curdled a bit in texture. I recommend not freezing this soup, unfortunately.

You can cut down the recipe to make only what you plan to eat. It will store for around 3 days in the fridge.

Does This Recipe Double Well

Grab a large enough pot and whip up a double batch of this hearty soup. Great for serving a crowd or large families! This soup doubles nicely.

You just need a large enough pan to hold a double batch. I have made this for birthday party meals, guests coming over, and more. It is always a hit and we just sit out toppings and let everyone dress up their own bowl of soup.
