Cheeseburger Soup

The inspiration for this recipe comes from a local restaurant named Grover’s Bar & Grill. Fun fact about this place is that it used to be president Grover Cleveland’s hunting lodge way back when. History aside, they have great burgers, chicken wings and the like, but this soup and this soup alone is what got them featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. This soup is unlike any soup you’ve ever tasted. It’s SO yummy and delicious that I could seriously LICK THE BOWL. I’m fully aware that this isn’t the healthiest meal out there, even with the fat free substitutions, therefore I only condone eating it after a vigorous workout at the gym. Then it’s on like donkey kong. Also, don’t be scared of adding in the lettuce at the end. I was too, but trust me, it’s a necessary ingredient in making this soup so dang tasty and addictive. My version is pretty close to the original, but if you ever get a chance to make it out to East Amherst, NY, I strongly suggest you check out Grover’s.

Cheeseburger Soup

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon McCormick’s hamburger seasoning or similar
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups low sodium, fat free chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup flour mixed with 3/4 cup water
  • 1 pint fat free half & half
  • 1 32 ounce block of Velveeta or similar, cubed
  • 4 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 small head iceberg lettuce, chopped
  • salt & pepper to taste

In a large pot, add ground beef and hamburger seasoning, salt & pepper and cook until browned and a bit crispy, drain. Add butter and sweat onions until translucent. Add chicken stock and flour slurry, bring to boil scrapping bits off the bottom. Add half & half and Velveeta. Cook until all the cheese is melted, but not boiling. Add in tomatoes and lettuce. Season to taste and lower heat. Cover and cook for about 10-15 minutes.

  2. I haven’t been to Grover’s in about 10 years because it’s so hard to get in. I live literally 2 miles from Grover’s in fact. Still can never get in! But I saw this soup on Triple D and really wanted to try it. If your recipe is anything like Grover’s version, then it’s amazing! But now that I can make it at home, all the better! Thanks so much for posting this. I pinned it! I made this today and have a huge pot that I’m now trying to decide what to do with… Other than eating it myself, but I don’t want to eat it ALL! Haha! Yum!
