IMG_20150408_175223

18-20 meatballs, or 12 oz bag

3 potatoes, peeled and cubed

2 cups of carrots, cleaned and sliced

1 medium onion, finely chopped

3 celery stalks, cleaned and chopped

1 can of tomato soup

1 can of beef gravy

1 cup of water

1 envelope of onion soup mix

2 packets of Beef Herbox

~ Place all in the Crock Pot and cook on low 5-6 hours.

*I used a 24 ounce bag of meatballs, and 2 envelopes of powder beef gravy, so I also used 4 cups of water instead of one to create more liquid.

Cheeseburger Soup

unnamed

1 1/2 quarts of water

2 cups cubed potatoes (your choice, I use red and leave the skins on)

2 small carrots, grated

1 small onion, chopped

1 small green pepper, chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

1 Tbsp beef bullion, or 1 packet of Beef Herbox

1/2 tsp salt

1 lb hamburg, cooked and drained

2 1/2 cups of milk

3 Tbsp flour

8 oz Velveeta cheese

1/2 lb cooked and crumbled bacon, or real bacon pieces

~ In a large pan, combine all ingredients up to and including salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until potatoes are cooked.

Stir in hamburger and 2 cups of milk. Heat through.

Combine flour and 1/2 cup of milk and stir until smooth.  Gradually stir into soup. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes and the soup is thick and bubbly.

Reduce heat and stir in cheese. Continue stirring until all is melted and blended well.

Top with bacon and crackers.
