Tasty Tuesday Cheeseburger Soup!

Donna has sent us another scrumptious recipe!


  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cups chicken broth or (2 cups broth 1 can Beer).
  • 4 cups cubed potatoes
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups cubed Cheddar cheese(I like Sharp Cheddar)

  • 1/4 cup sour cream


  1. In a large pot, melt 1 tablespoon butter or margarine over medium heat: cook and stir vegetables and beef , until beef is brown.
  2. Stir in basil and parsley. Add broth and potatoes. Bring to a boil, then simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10-12 minutes.
  3. Melt the remainder of butter and stir in flour. Add the milk, stirring until smooth.
  4. Gradually add milk mixture to the soup, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer. Stir in cheese. When cheese is melted, add sour cream and heat through. Do not boil.


  1. Now I want bratwurst

  2. LOL Autumm

    I want some suspended animation.

  3. OOps I thought he was wearing suspenders.

  4. Do they do 'pole' dancing at Octoberfest?

    And Autumn, bratwurst sounds wonderful about right now!

  5. LMAO! Bratwurst, Polish sausage, footlong wieners, pole dancing.... Sounds like my kind of festival!

    Actually, I think that strap is what he's using to carry his rifle, Mary G. Though he might need it to hold up that YD!

  6. I hate to be the person who puts a pall on this Teutonic brat-fest, but does that YD look like it's been stuck on or is it just me? It looks like there's a...I don't know...a little crevice where it's attached to his very nice body! And I swear this isn't because he has no hair--it just looks fixed on to me! ;)

  7. LOL! He's had a YD transplant! Actually, think it's just the way it grows on him.

  8. I'm thinking Dancing the Beer Barrel Polka. And later grabbing the Bratwurst after I've Swigged a feel beers and feasted on the soup. I think I'll need it. Nan, That might be a imposter Y/D. It's a polkakiebasa. Roll out the Barrel, we're going to have some fun. Getting Pickled.

  9. That Yummydoodle is Real. I sent Cheryl further proof. The poles really attached. And it's not sewed on either. It belongs to Guiseppi in the flesh. LOL!!!

  10. Okay then, Donna, I'm officially impressed! Roll out the barrel!!

  11. Thank God for Octoberfest if the guys all look that that! I don't even need the beer!

  12. Alrighty then, an upright yummydoodle ready to poke-her. *snort*

  13. I think Nancy has already had enough. She's snorting. She inhaled the Beer and ate every last inch of the Bratwurst. You should have seen her do the poke her dance. She was so hungry and deprived. She's just collapsed under the tent now. But she's smiling.

  14. Such a nice way to start the fall season. Sure wouldn't mind falling on that weinerschnitzel:)

  15. I'm depressed. I went to bed last night before the post and woke up late to work. I haven't been able to check this until now. AAAHHHH!

    But at least I see what I like. Whoopee!

  16. Oh yes, Cat Master...much better:)

  17. @Diva Donna. You tell such a good story I almost believed it was real:))

  18. Believe it I seen it with my own eyes. Nancy you were smiling ear to ear.
