Cheeseburger Soup


Well, hello there! Today I want to share a recipe that was the brainchild of Child #2. I helped her to perfect the recipe, but it was all her idea. It is a yummy, creamy, satisfying treat and a wonderful soup for a cold day! You will need:

2 lbs. ground beef

2 Tbsp. dried, minced onion (onion flakes)

6 cups water

1/2 lb. butter

1 cup white rice flour

1 Tbsp. turmeric powder

2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. black pepper

12 cups whole milk

3, 15 oz. cans of sliced potatoes

8 oz. (2 cups) sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

Break up ground beef into small pieces and put into a large stockpot. Add dried, minced onions and water. Boil until beef is cooked through. Drain water from beef and return to heat, immediately adding butter until melted. Add rice flour, turmeric, salt, and pepper. Stir until combined. Immediately add milk, stirring constantly until mixture has thickened slightly. Add canned potatoes. You can use fresh potatoes, but make sure to cook them first so they’re not hard. Add cheese and stir until melted and blended in. Let sit and meld flavors for 15 to 30 minutes, if you can resist eating it immediately! Enjoy!

Totally tasty with a gluten-free dinner roll with butter!

NOTE: This is a very rich soup, especially in the dairy department. You might want to consider using some lactose pills if you suffer from milk intolerance!

  1. Omg this is such an interesting and unique recipe! I will definitely try it out when I get a minute. I would recommend switching the dairy to gluten free for those who are lactose intolerant. I usually use oat milk and it tastes a lot like real dairy!


  2. Ooh, that sounds good! I haven’t tried oat milk yet because I have a kiddo who’s sensitive to oats, but good to know it tastes like dairy! Thanks for the tip!
