Cheeseburger Soup

Now that at least two of my boys have become more accepting of eating soup, I plan to do more experimenting with this simple, yet satisfying food. Cheeseburger Soup is inexpensive, easy to make, and will undoubtedly become a family favorite.

~ Cheeseburger Soup ~

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter/margarine
1 onion, chopped
3 - 4 carrots, peeled and diced
1 pound ground beef
4 potatoes, peeled and diced
1/4 cup flour
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3 cups chicken broth
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
3 bay leaves
1 1/2 cups milk
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Melt the butter with the olive oil in a large pot. Add the onion and carrots and saute for a minute. Add the ground beef and cook until no longer pink. Stir in the potatoes and the flour. Cook for a few minutes. Stir in the spices. Slowly add the broth, stirring at the same time. Add the worcestershire sauce and bay leaves. Bring to a boil and simmer about 15 minutes, until the potatoes are tender. Pour in the milk and bring to a boil. Add the cheese and simmer until melted.
