Creamy Potato & Hamburger Soup

Mike actually turned up his nose when I told him I was going to whip up this Creamy Potato & Hamburger Soup.

He seriously thinks he doesn’t like hamburger in soups. Every time I talk about putting ground beef in a soup, he tells me he doesn’t like it. And then every single time I make a soup with ground beef in it, he loves it.

Seriously. The guy has this mental block about it. Hamburger soup is awesome, right?

I swear that most of my soup concoctions are because I have a stuff in my freezer, fridge and pantry that I have to use up. I was desperately trying to use up potatoes before we went to the States for Christmas, I had some ground beef in my freezer and always those frozen veggies.

Well, voila. This creamy potato & hamburger soup was the result of my cleaning out my freezer and pantry.

This is similar to my Crockpot Macaroni Cheeseburger Soup which is pretty much one of my favourite soups of all time. This one isn’t as rich – athough if you want to add more Velveeta cheese, feel free to do so! – and you can cut it with a dollop of sour cream on top if you wish. Again, remember that Mike doesn’t like rich soups, so if he enjoyed this one it should be good for everyone. I love a thick, rich soup. Him? He pretends that he doesn’t like ground beef in soup, remember?

Poor Mr Magpie. Good thing we love him so much!

This would be perfect for Christmas Eve after church, Christmas lunch, a New Year’s party or any ol’ time of the year. It’s going on the regular rotation soup list, for sure. I love how easy it is, how stick to the bones hearty it is and most of all, how Mike argues with me every time I make it. 😉

I hope you all made it through the holidays happy and well loved! Make sure that you don’t miss my new and amazing Crockpot Meatball Shepherd’s Pie!

    Why is the sodium content so high? The broth?
