About this recipe: This is a delicious and hearty soup. Minced beef is simmered with onion, carrots, celery, potatoes, Cheddar and milk. Serve with crusty fresh bread, for lunch or dinner.
I have made a lot of soups. This is by far my favourite. Its so gorgeous. - 22 May 2014
Because I commute 1 hour each way to work, I simplify this recipe. I also use more ground beef, 1#, I buy the cubed hash browned potatoes in the freezer section, along with the frozen diced onions. I use whole milk, and make this recipe as stated. I shave lots of time from assemblage with the 'easy' ingredients. Very hearty, creamy, filling on a cold winter's night. My family loves this, we have been making it for about 5 years now, I was surprised to find it on this site. To thicken this use potato flakes, it works great! The potato flakes make it a richer, thicker soup with substance. - 13 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe was okay (as it was written)...I am only giving it 3 stars because as it is written, I do not love it. But after changes were made it was a pretty good cold day soup. I did not use the celery or carrots, that is not on a cheeseburger. I used beef broth instead of chicken broth and the second time I made it I used velvetta instead of cheddar. Cheddar does not get that creamy when melted. I am going to try a pasta in it next time instead of the potatoes. All in all, good basis for a very filling soup. - 23 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
