Since the temperatures have been getting cooler I love making homemade soups and stews.  But honestly, I didn’t have a whole lot of soup recipes in my recipe box. So I went online to get some inspiration. I had seen a recipe floating around the internet for homemade cheeseburger soup and I liked the idea of it. I often get ideas online and create my own version of them. So I grabbed some ingredients that I felt would work well for this soup and went to work. It turned out really well, tasted fantastic and  I really enjoyed it! I will definitely be keeping this one in my meal rotation!

This recipe was done completely on the stovetop. So it was relatively simple. But it did take a little more time than I usually like.

It is not difficult to make and is perfectly paired with a nice salad or some fresh homemade quick bread. It is great during the cooler months of the year because it is a hearty soup.

You can make this cheeseburger soup recipe gluten and grain-free by using arrowroot powder in place of cornstarch or other grain-based flour. Go ahead and thicken it the way that works best for you!
