  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 7 tbsp Butter divided
  • 1 cup chopped Onion
  • 1 cup sliced Carrots
  • 3/4 cup diced Celery
  • 4 cup Potatoes diced
  • 1 tsp Basil
  • 1 tbsp minced Garlic
  • 3 cup Chicken Broth
  • 1/4 cup Flour
  • 8 oz shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper


  • Brown the ground beef in a dutch oven and drain excess grease .
  • Add 4 tablespoons butter to the pan and melt.
  • Add onion, carrots, basil, garlic, and celery and cook until onion is transparent.
  • Add the broth and potatoes and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  • In another pan, melt the remaining butter and add the flour. Cook and stir for several minutes or until roux is bubbling.
  • Add roux to soup and bring to a boil then stir for a couple of minutes.
  • Reduce heat to low and add cheese, milk, salt and pepper.
  • Cook and stir for several minutes until cheese melts.


Allow your soup to cool completely before storing it in an airtight container- if keeping in the fridge for 3-4 days- or a ziplock bag. If freezing, squeeze any excess air out of the bag, seal shut and lay flat in your freezer where it will keep for about a month. To reheat, just add the frozen soup to a pot on the stovetop and stir constantly over low/medium-low heat until melted and heated through.
