Hamburger Soup Recipe


This hamburger soup recipe is a comfort food that I would often make for my children when they were young. It is hearty, nutritious, easy to make, and inexpensive! It stretches a long way, especially with smaller children who don’t eat that much. Another nice thing about this hamburger soup recipe is that you can use whatever you have on hand. If you have leftover vegetables you can throw them in! If it’s a veggie that the kids don’t really like, puree it in the blender or the food processor and they will probably never know it’s in there! It’s a sneaky way to get the kids to eat their vegetables. I know this from experience.

With a couple of exceptions, this hamburger soup recipe can be made mostly with items out of your pantry. This means that you can stock up on the ingredients when they go on sale and when you’re ready to make this soup you have the ingredients on hand and you got them at a great price. This is just common sense and being a good steward of your resources while presenting your family with a comfort food that they love.

It’s a good idea to make a double batch of this hamburger soup recipe.  You do the work once but you will have twice the meals with some stored up in your freezer.  This is a real bonus for when the kids have something like soccer games or football practice after school and you know you’ll be getting home late.  Take a container of soup out of the freezer that morning or the night before and you won’t have to worry about dinner.  Add some buttered French rolls, biscuits, or bread sticks to go with this hamburger soup recipe, and you have a nice warming meal with very little fuss.

Ingredients for this Hamburger Soup Recipe

1 ½ lb ground beef
