How to make Cheeseburger Soup:
Prep: Start by browning your ground beef. Add in the carrots and onions and cook until they are tender. Next add in the seasoning, broth and the noodles and bring it to a boil.
Boil and Simmer: Once it comes to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for about 5-8 minutes making sure the noodles are cooked.
Finish and Serve: Add in the cream and cheese and mix well. Serve with more cheese on top and some diced up hamburger buns for a nice "bread" to dip in it.
- Ground Beef - you can use ground turkey if you are not a fan of beef.
- Onion - Diced yellow onion.
- Carrots - peeled and then diced.
- Elbow Macaroni - you can use another type of small pasta.
- Seasoning - basil, parsley, oregano, salt, and pepper.
- Broth - I usually use chicken broth but vegetable or beef would also work.
- Heavy Cream
- Cheese - shredded Colby jack cheese,
Step One - Start by cooking and crumbling your ground beef in a large pot. Drain fat and return to stove top.
Add onions and carrots and allow to cook for 4-5 minutes until tender.
Step Two - Add all seasoning to the cooked beef and tender veggies. Add in elbow macaroni then chicken broth.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and cover. Cook for 6-8 minutes until pasta is tender.
Step Three - Add in heavy cream and shredded cheese.
Mix well until cheese is melted and smooth.
What makes a good cheeseburger soup?
A soup needs to be hearty and filling. Thick and chunky with tons of flavor! I love this soup because it has all the flavors of a great cheeseburger.
The cream and cheese really add to the flavor of this soup.
A good alternative to the noodles is potatoes. You can replace the noodles with cubed potatoes if you would like.
Wash and cube the potatoes and add them in at the same place in the recipe you would add the noodles.
You can also add diced celery if you would like.
Can I make this in the slow cooker?
Yes, you can definitely make this recipe in the slow cooker.

Made your soup today. My son said he really wasn't sure about it...but he tried it. Three bowls later he said "you can make this anytime." I just used Velveeta cheese instead of the shredded Colby. Thanks for the recipe!
So happy to hear that!!
I added 1/2 tsp salt instead of the 1/4 tsp and let the soup sit off the heat for about 7-8 minutes before serving and it was So Yummy!
Glad you liked it!!! Thank you Kaci!
Soooooooo good! Doubled the recipe for a crowd- such a perfect fall soup! I did cook the pasta separate so that it didn’t turn to mush over the next few days (looking forward to leftovers!).... also, added more broth to make it soupier. Also, added canned diced tomatoes and celery to up the nutritional value. 👏🏼 Such a great recipe!
So glad you liked it Teresa!! I love the added tomatoes and celery, I might have to try that!!
