Cheeseburger Soup

Happy #SoupSwapDay! This is seriously one of my favorite food days – both on the blog and in real life! Each year, I host friends for a soup swap. It’s an afternoon of soup sampling, good conversation – and we go home with enough soup for the cold winter days.

Online, I get together with my blogger buddies to share new soup recipes. This cheeseburger soup is one the whole family has been loving!

I often find that my taste in soup differs from my kids’. Last year, I hit a home run making their beloved pepperoni pizza into a soup. It made me wonder, what other favorites could I make a soup version of? Cheeseburgers were the next obvious choice.

This turned out to be such a fun soup – the flavors of burgers but in a format you’ll crave on a cold day. We topped our bowls off with our favorites – extra cheese and pickles – but any of your favorite burger toppings would be a fun addition here!

On the side, rolls are just perfect. After all, what’s a burger without a bun? I’m loving these Hokkaido Milk Bread Rolls from Karen’s Kitchen Stories.

I’m really excited to share a roundup of everyone’s new soups later today, but I was also loving browsing everyone’s archives as I planned for my in-person soup swap!

Savory Moments has a huge number of soup recipes to choose from for every season. I think my family would love this meaty chili from Books ‘n Cooks and Karen’s Kitchen stories has another favorite dinner in soup form – Chicken Enchilada Soup!

Looking for something to accompany that bowl of soup? How about an Italian Chopped Salad or Garlic Knots?

And there’s even more awesome inspiration on our Pinterest board.

I’d love to hear what soup you’re loving lately in the comments below!

  1. That pickle garnish looks delicious. I would eat that in a hot minute. Just for fun, I think I would toast some hamburger buns and add some butter and garlic and serve those with the soup.
