Crockpot Cheeseburger Soup

Crockpot Cheeseburger Soup


I’m an American. 

Americans like their cheeseburgers.

So we are always looking for new ways to have our cheeseburger. One way to serve them up is in a bowl. A BREAD bowl!

In each bite, you get the toasty melt-in-your-mouth bread, and the ooey-gooey cheese, with a subtle taste of tomato and, of course, beef. It’s a cheeseburger in every single bite, but on a SPOON people! A spoon!

And it couldn’t be easier to make. Just let the crockpot do all the work for ya!

Not only will the crockpot cook it, but it will also be kind enough to let the smell of deliciousness slowly develop in your entire home.

Or, you could easily throw all the ingredients together in the early morning and let it cook all day and it will be ready by the time you get home from work. And just imagine how fabulous your house will smell when you walk through your front door and the crockpot greets you with it’s tantalizing smell of cheeseburger.

Say it with me, “tantalizing.”

“Tantalizing…but are the bread bowls really necessary? I mean, c’mon, I got plenty of bowls in the cupboard”, you say.

Necessary? Absolutely. If you want to complete that cheeseburger effect, yes indeed, go get yourself some bread bowls my friend!

Trust me, you’ll thank yourself once you’ve had the first bite that includes the buttery soft crouton. Oh yes.

Plus, you get to EAT the BOWL! You get to pretend that you’re a caveman for a few minutes and completely tear apart and devour the bread bowl like there is no tomorrow. And nobody will judge you for it. Go ahead. Be a caveman!

  1. 1 lb. ground beef
  2. 1 onion, chopped
  3. 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  4. 1 tbsp. grill seasoning
  5. 1 tbsp. italian seasoning
  6. 1 tsp. garlic powder
  7. 1 tsp. salt
  8. 1 tsp. pepper
  9. 1 large russet potato, peeled and chopped
  10. 1 pint of cherry tomatoes
  11. 1 8 oz. package of cream cheese
  12. 2 cups of sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  13. 1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
  14. 3 cups of beef broth
  15. 1/4 cup cold water
  16. 2 tbsp. cornstarch
  17. Bread bowls {optional for serving}
  1. In a large skillet, on medium high heat, brown the ground beef until cooked. Drain the fat and place ground beef in crockpot.
  2. In the same skillet, saute the onion over medium high heat until transparent (5-7 minutes). Add garlic and cook for an additional 2 minutes over medium heat.
  3. Add the cooked onions to the crockpot, along with the remainder of ingredients except the cold water and cornstarch and cheddar cheese. Give it all a good stir. Cook on high for 4 hours, or on low for 6-8 hours.
  4. Once it has finished cooking, mix the cornstarch in the cold water in a small bowl until completely combined. Add to the crockpot and stir to thicken the soup. Add the cheddar cheese. Let it sit with the lid off for 10 minutes.
  5. While the soup is sitting, you can start on the bread bowls. Cut a small hole at the top of the bread bowl and remove the cap. Gently, tear out the inner bread to hollow it out.
  6. To make croutons, take the inner bread from the bowl and chop up into rough cubes and cook over medium heat in skillet with several tablespoons of butter. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  7. To serve, pour warm soup into bread bowl and top with croutons. Yum!

  1. Hmmm! i am always looking for new recipes for active kids on the run. Could you just do it in a pot without using the crockpot?

    • Absolutely, you can definitely do this via stove-top. If I were to make this on the stove, I’d add everything except the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and cornstarch/water mixture. I’d bring it to a boil then simmer on low for 2 hours, or until the potatoes are tender. Then I’d add the cheeses and the cornstarch. Let me know how it goes! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. This looks heavenly! I’m horrible at cooking, but I think I could handle this one! Thanks for sharing, Amie, I’m definitely going to have to try it!
