I love soup, I usually have it for dinner a couple times a week during the winter. So I’m always trying out new soup recipes.

Although this Cheeseburger Soup is WW friendly it will be a family favorite!

There are a few things I did to make it lower in points. One is I used Laura’s lean ground beef, which is 96% lean.

You can also use ground turkey to save points.

Using reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese helped to save some points.

I also cut back the amount of butter in the recipe and I used skim milk.

Here’s what you need to make Cheeseburger Soup:

  • Lean ground beef
  • Butter
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Onion
  • Flour
  • Chicken broth
  • Potatoes
  • Italian seasoning, oregano, salt and pepper
  • Reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Skim milk

To make the soup I started by browning and draining the ground beef. Set the beef to the side.

In a Dutch oven or large pot melt the butter then add the carrots, celery and onion. Cook on medium heat for about 3 minutes.

Add the flour and stir together. Slowly start to stir in the chicken broth. Add in the ground beef and potatoes, turn the heat to medium-high.

Once the soup starts to simmer reduce heat to low and cover. Let simmer for 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.

Next stir in the sharp cheddar cheese until it’s melted, then add in the milk.

You can top the soup with your favorite burger toppings – bacon, onion or more cheese. It’s a hearty soup that will definitely fill you up!

Would love if you could put nutritional values with recipes! I am diabetic and have to count my carb intact.

I love all of your recipes. The one thing I wish you would do is put serving sizes on them. I am sure that when you make a recipe, you know what the serving size is. It would be so helpful to the rest of us. Thanks for considering doing this.
