Creamy Potato and Hamburger Soup

Creamy Potato and Hamburger Soup is a hearty and comforting dish. Here’s a simple recipe for you to try:


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 3 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 4 cups beef or vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups milk (whole or 2%)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. In a large soup pot or Dutch oven, brown the ground beef over medium-high heat. Drain any excess fat.
  2. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic to the pot. Cook until the onion is softened.
  3. Stir in the diced potatoes, sliced carrots, and chopped celery.
  4. Pour in the beef or vegetable broth. Add dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let it simmer until the vegetables are tender (about 15-20 minutes).
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour and milk until well combined and smooth.
  6. Gradually pour the milk and flour mixture into the soup, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming. Continue to cook and stir until the soup thickens.
  7. Add shredded cheddar cheese to the soup and stir until the cheese is melted.
  8. Remove the pot from heat and stir in sour cream until well combined.
  9. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
  10. Ladle the creamy potato and hamburger soup into bowls, and garnish with chopped fresh parsley.

Serve the soup hot and enjoy this comforting and satisfying dish! It’s perfect for a cozy dinner or lunch on a chilly day.
