Guess what! I got married October 6th, 2012! Actually, I have been married since October 11th, 2011, but we just had our wedding. It was an amazing, magical, fairy tale of a wedding! It was absolutely, positively perfect in every single way.

There was no problems whatsoever, and I was the calmest, happiest and most relaxed bride ever! A dream come true!

So, to celebrate, I am sharing one of my most requested recipes, my famous cheeseburger soup! Easily one of the best recipes I have ever created, you can thank me later! 😉

Alley’s Famous Cheeseburger Soup

 

Ingredients

1 pound ground beef

1 large onion, chopped

1 cup baby carrots, chopped

1 cup celery, diced

1 teaspoon dried sweet basil

1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

4 tablespoons butter, divided

3 cups chicken broth

4 cups diced peeled potatoes

1/4 cup all purpose flour

2 cups (8 ounces) velveeta cheese, cubed

1 1/2 cups milk

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

1/4 cup sour cream

 

Directions

In a 3-qt. saucepan, brown beef; drain and set aside. In the same saucepan, sauté the onion, carrots, celery, basil and parsley in 1 tablespoon butter until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Add the broth, potatoes and beef; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Meanwhile, in a small skillet, melt remaining butter. Add flour; cook and stir for 3-5 minutes or until bubbly. Add to soup; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Stir in the cheese, milk, salt and pepper; cook and stir until cheese melts. Remove from the heat; blend in sour cream.

    Congratulations! You certainly made a beautiful bride and your groom was (is) very handsome. If you made this soup for him while you were dating I’m not surprised in the least that he fell in love with you 🙂 Best wishes for a wonderful life together.
