Hi Everyone and Happy Monday,
Wow, I can’t get over the weekend is gone. I have one more week of work left and then I am on holiday break! Yah, I can’t wait!!! I do not have any plans except to catch up on household chores and working on my blog. Today I have for you a wonderful soup that is so simple to make, filling and a man pleaser!!
This is my Hamburger Soup! It was so cold out and all I could think about was having a nice hot bowl of soup for dinner, but I wasn’t sure what to make. So I was digging through my refrigerator and it came up pretty empty, but I saw some ground beef and thought Taco Soup, but my Husband said nah! So I decided to whip up hamburger soup, because who doesn’t like hamburgers? My Husband was pretty weary of hamburger soup, but once he had it, he loved it!! He already told me he wanted left overs for dinner the next night. Hey, I’ll agree to that, it’s an easy dinner!! Love it!!
This soup is pretty easy to make too! One pot is all you need!!! I cooked my ground beef with onions, garlic and celery and cooked it until no more oil was left in the pan. I added beef broth, tomato sauce, canned tomatoes, frozen corn and some seasoning That’s it. The whole process took about 40 minutes to make. The soup was perfect! Thick, hearty, not super high in calories and everyone loved it, including Little Jenny!! I can guarantee I will be making this soup again!! By the way sorry for the crocked photos, it seems my soup bowl is not level. Very odd! lol
Oh, I almost forgot, for an added heartiness, I used some elbow noodles that I had. My Husband always loves noodles in his soup. I wasn’t sure about it, but it was just right! I only used 3 oz, which was the right amount. I can guarantee anyone in your family that likes hamburgers will love this soup. I served mine with a big side salad and of course my Husband used like half a box of oyster crackers. He drowns every soup in it!!
