How to make Cheeseburger Soup
Step 1: Cook the beef in a 3-quart saucepan on medium-high heat until browned. Then, drain when done and set the beef aside.
Step 2: Saute the onion, carrots, celery, basil, and parsley in the same saucepan in 1 tbsp butter over medium heat until the veggies have softened. This takes about 10 minutes. Into the pot, press the garlic, and cook for another minute until aromatic.
Step 3: Pour in the broth. Then, add the potatoes along with the browned beef. Bring the mixture to a boil. Once boiling, decrease the heat. Put the lid on and let the mixture simmer for about 10 to 12 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
Step 4: In the meantime, melt the rest of the butter in a small skillet. Once melted, add the flour and cook while stirring for about 3 to 5 minutes until bubbly. Add this to the soup and bring it to a boil. Cook the soup for another 2 minutes, stirring.
Step 5: Adjust the heat to low. Then, add the cheese along with the milk. To taste, season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until the cheese has melted.
Step 6: Take the pot off the heat and stir in the sour cream.
