Ingredients
  1. 1/2 to 3/4 lbs ground beef
  2. 1/2 c chopped onion
  3. 1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
  4. Salt and pepper
  5. 1 t basil
  6. 1 t parsley
  7. 4 T butter
  8. 4 T flour
  9. 3 cups chicken broth
  10. 4-5 yukon gold potatoes, cubed
  11. 1 1/2 cups milk
Optional
  1. 1/4 cup sour cream
  2. Cubed cheese to add to soup or shredded cheese to sprinkle on top.
Instructions
  1. In a large pot, brown the beef with onion and garlic. Add salt and pepper. (Some cooks would include chopped celery and carrots too, but that's not a favorite in our house).
  2. Add basil, parsley, potatoes and broth. Bring to a boil and then simmer until potatoes are tender.
  3. In a separate saucepan, melt the butter and add flour to make a roux. Once combined, add the milk and stir until smooth.
  4. Gradually add the milk sauce to the large pot. Bring to a boil again and reduce to simmer.
  5. Optional additions: Add sour cream and cheese and heat the soup through.
Notes
  1. The first time I ever heard of hamburger/cheeseburger soup was up here in the NW. Brent's uncle made this soup for us and I thoroughly enjoyed the flavor. It's taken me awhile, but I have finally replicated the idea.
