Cheeseburger Chowder




Introduction: Cheeseburger Chowder

What's not to love about a soup that tastes like a burger? Particularly if it is served with sliced dill pickle and a nice hot sauce? This cheeseburger chowder is a real hit with kids of all ages.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cups cubed red potatoes (about 2 cups)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 sliced celery stalk
  • 4 beef bouillon cubes
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


Step 1: Brown Some Stuff

In the dutch oven, brown beef, onion, and celery over medium heat until onion and celery are soft and meat is thoroughly browned (about 7 minutes). Drain. Since the ground beef we use is very lean (we grind it ourselves), we simply use a paper towel to soak up any grease in the bottom of the pot.

Step 2: Potato Time

Add the potatoes, water, and bouillon to the pot. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cover until the potatoes are soft, about 20 minutes.

Step 3: Thicken

In a small measuring cup, mix the flour and 1/2 cup milk until smooth. Add this to the pot and stir. Cook at a boil and stir 1-2 minutes or until thickened.

Step 4: Milk Time

Stir in the remaining milk and allow to heat until bubbling.

Step 5: Cheese Time!

Add the cheese and stir until melted. Serve and enjoy!
