Amish Cheeseburger Soup


  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • 8 Tablespoons Butter, Divided
  • 1-½ cup Carrots, Sliced or Roughly Chopped
  • 1-½ cup Celery, Sliced
  • 1 whole Small Onion Chopped
  • Fresh Parsley, Snipped
  • Basil, To Taste
  • 6 cups Chicken Broth
  • 8 cups Peeled And Cubed Potatoes
  • ½ cups Flour
  • 3 cups Milk
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 16 ounces Velveeta or a more real cheese like 16 ounces extra sharp cheddar cheese, grated is lovely
  • 16 ounces, weight Sour Cream

In a skillet, cook ground beef and set aside. In a large stockpot, melt 2 tablespoons butter and saute carrots, celery, onion, parsley and basil. After 10 minutes, add the chicken broth and potatoes, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until potatoes are tender.

In a saucepan, make your roux by melting the remaining butter. Add flour, salt and pepper to taste, and cook until bubbly, about a minute. Slowly, add milk and cook on medium, stirring constantly until thickened. Add to the broth and veggies. Turn the heat to low and add the cheese and beef. When the cheese is melted, stir in the sour cream. Taste and add more seasonings according to your liking.

  1. Hey we use this same recipe but it’s called just “Cheeseburger Soup” and my family (especially husband) LOVE it!! Very tasty!! For a punch you can add bacon bits and that’s really good too!!
    Of course, I’m not cooking this week 😉 so maybe I’ll fix it again next week. I hear the cold is coming back!

  2. Looks so delicious but I to believe this is “my cheeseburger” soup non the less I have not made it yet this year so thanks for the reminder 🙂
    You can never go wrong with soup for any meal!

  3. We have made this so many times since you posted this originally! We made it once for Dave’s extended family and it was a huge hit! It’s a “repeat” at our house 🙂
