I am currently trying out a new diet that involves a serious amount of soup. I”m actually ok with this, as I really do love soup. And, it has forced me to try some different soups because they all need to be broth based and have a variety of vegetables. So…my yummy cheesy potato soup is gone for now. But, I can replace this with this smoky cheeseburger soup!
I don’t consider many soups to be great for the summer time – this one I would. It’s just like a cheeseburger. You could use turkey burgers as well, we just happened to have a ton of leftover bbq’d hamburgers from a recent party. One of my favorite parts of this soup is the grill marks on the burgers – I just think that’s awesome. My other favorite part? My children have been ASKING me to make it again. For some reason vegetables in soups don’t count as real vegetables in their book – which is hilarious to me.
My suggestion to you, and this goes for almost all things grilled – make more than you think you need. And plan ahead. It’s so fun to incorporate bbq into other meals. It’s cost-effective, it’s makes life easier because some of the meal is already prepared for you, and above all else – it’s just plain delicious.
Try this – I really don’t think you’ll be disappointed. And tell your kids the vegetables aren’t real if they’re in soup! Maybe my kids will start a new trend! 🙂
