Just when I thought I had run out of ideas for soup I saw some Guy on The Food Network eating Cheeseburger soup. Perfect. I come from a strong stock of burger lovers as well as soup lovers so it was only natural I embrace a burger soup.
This soup has all the traditional toppings a cheeseburger has and some not so traditional. There’s ground meat, spinach for the lettuce, fresh tomatoes, onions and bell peppers surrounded by a cheddar cheese infused broth, extra cheese on top and the optional bacon crumbles.
There’s a surprise too. Elbow macaroni. One cannot live on burgers alone. Potatoes would be good instead. Then you’d have cheeseburger and fries soup. Tee-hee. In theory it doesn’t sound the least bit appealing but in reality nothing could be farther from the truth.

Cheeseburger in a bowl. It’s a good thing.
