Cheeseburger Soup

This indulgent cheesy and creamy soup is the ultimate comfort food. 

Marrying into the Richardson family comes with a compelling benefit.  Gram Tootie passes down her highly sought after Recipes and Recollections book.  Filled with scrumptious recipes from breakfast to dessert, this was a key component of my acceptance in regard’s to Kyle’s marriage proposal.

While Gram’s book is filled with delicious meals, this is our family favorite.  Every time I make it, I’m sure to double the recipe and the leftovers barely make it to the fridge!  Serve it with a side of bread and marvel at this savory soup.
