The Ingredients Used to Make A Creamy Hamburger Potato Soup Recipe

This hamburger potato soup recipe offers cheesy creaminess and is packed with healthy vegetables! Its seasonings are balanced and include a blend of salt, pepper, rosemary, Italian seasonings, and smoked paprika. The ingredients you need include –

  • 1 lb. of Lean Ground Beef.
    Pro-tip – it is important to drain excess fat before adding the diced onion and carrots to the pot if you choose to use ground beef with a fat content that exceeds 10%. Note that you can substitute ground beef for ground chicken for those with a taste or dietary preference.
  • 1 Medium Yellow Onion – Peeled and Diced.
    Pro-tip – if you prefer, you can substitute a white onion to make this hamburger potato soup.
  • 2 Large Whole Carrots – Peeled and Diced.
  • 2 Teaspoons of Minced Garlic.
  • 1 Tablespoon of Italian Seasoning.
    Pro-tip – If you’d rather make homemade Italian seasoning, it is easy and gives you complete control of how you use the ingredients. Combine dried these dried spices – oregano, thyme, basil, oregano, and marjoram. You can optionally add dried sage as well.
  • 1 Teaspoon of Dried Rosemary – Crushed.
  • 1 & ¼ Teaspoons of Salt.
  • ½ Teaspoon of Ground Black Pepper.
  • ½ Teaspoon of Smoked Paprika.

  • 2 Medium Russet Potatoes – Peeled & Cubed Into Half Inch Pieces.
    Pro-tip – Russet or Yukon Gold work well in this recipe. The potatoes can be peeled if you prefer, but it will definitely work if you decide to leave the peel on. Dicing your potatoes into very small, even pieces will ensure they cook quickly and evenly when served. Plus, you’ll get a little bit of potato in every bite!
  • ¾ Cup of Frozen Corn.
  • ¾ Cup of Frozen Peas.
  • 2 – 14.5 oz. Cans of Vegetable Broth (this is equivalent to 3 & ⅔ cups)
    Pro-tip – The chicken broth is a suitable alternative to vegetable broth and can be used instead.
  • ⅔ Cup of Heavy Cream, or if you prefer, you can use Half And Half.
  • 1 Cup of Shredded Sharp White Cheddar Cheese.
