Sometimes you just need to follow your feelings and change up the menu plan. That's how I made this soup. It was a chilly day and there was a football game, and what I had planned just didn't seem to fit. I had this recipe pinned, and had most of the ingredients, so decided to try it. Of course, I added my own personal touches (it didn't call for ketchup or mustard! so I added it!) and made it my own. And now it will be on the regular rotation!
Saying that this soup was a hit at my house would be an understatement. It was gobbled up. Even I was surprised at how much this soup TASTED like a real cheeseburger - and one kid was shocked at how much she loved it since "I don't even like cheeseburgers." So there you have it. Whether you love cheeseburgers or not, you will love this soup. It's comfort food at its finest.
