Once a month, we get together with our good friends and eat spend the day enjoying each others' company. It's always a long, laughter-filled day of eating.
This month, my friend Linda (who, as you may have noticed, gives me most of my best recipes), made Cheeseburger Soup. I was expecting the soup to be a ketchup and mustard laden dish with pickles. It was not at all pleasing in my brain.
Nonetheless, I was hungry, and I asked if I could try some. Oh my. It was amazing.
The soup turned out more like a spicy potato soup than a cheeseburger soup. It's so very good.
Even Grace liked it. She ate my entire first bowl.
I had two little bites.
It is filling, though, and that one bowl was enough for her.
I was able to enjoy my second bowl in relative peace.
I can also report that this soup reheats nicely as I ate the leftovers on Monday night.
Note (2017) – We have made this soup at least monthly since the time I posted the recipe in 2009. It's one of our most favorites. Joe takes it to every soup and recipe contest, and he almost always wins because everyone loves this soup.
Linda served her soup with a fresh bread. The bread was splendid dipped into the soup.
