Easy Cheeseburger Soup

February 4, 2011 6 comments

I have had a couple different cheeseburger soups that others have made but have never been able to get the recipe for them.  We had a lot of ground beef and I wanted to make something new so we browned up 2 pounds of it and I set out to find a cheeseburger soup recipe.  None of them online appealed too much to be because I really wanted to use Cheddar Cheese soup as my base.  So I read a few and picked out things I wanted to use from them and then winged it.

Needless to say it was AWESOME!  It was comforting, filling and so nice and warm in the belly.  Oh and I forgot about the best part, easy to make!  You could cook it in a slow cooker or in a pan on the stove.  I used my stock pot tonight as my slow cooker was not quite ready to be used (aka dirty)

Easy Chicken Soup

Sorry guys no pictures with this one, it was Halloween night that I made it and it was between getting decorations going, make up…. you get the picture!  It all started when I wanted to make a roast, but alas my roast had seen better days and we had to toss it, oops!

I knew I wanted to make something in the crockpot and then I remembered I had some Gnocchi in the pantry!  I had bought it to throw in some soup but hadn’t used it yet.  So I started digging and found 2 cans of white chicken meat I had bought for something else.  So soup it was!

Normally when I have made soup in the past I have used chicken stock, but I had none on hand, so I made do with ….. soup!  I used noodles and gnocchi, but you could use dumplings if you want.  I actually had just bought some and thought about using them.  I like to make things from scratch but sometimes you need those fast meals so I bought some frozen ones to try.

You can throw in some veggies, carrots, peas, celery.  I didn’t have anything on hand, but I would have thrown in some frozen peas at least if I did.

So here is my easy, throw together Chicken Soup.  Enjoy!

 

Easy Chicken Soup

1 pkg Reams Homestyle Egg Noodles
1 pkg Gnocchi
2 cans white chicken meat
2 cans cream of chicken
5 cups water
1-2 Tbsp chicken soup base – I like L B Jamison’s

Put the water, cream of chicken, soup base and chicken meat into the crockpot, let it cook on low for 2-4 hours, really it’s up to you.  Add whatever seasoning you want to it, I added a bay leaf.  About 20 – 30 min before you are ready to eat turn it to high and then add the noodles and gnocchi.  Let cook on high until everything is soft.
