Hamburger Soup with Homemade Crackers

Oct 27, 2021

I love hamburgers! I've made a few recipes recently based off of hamburgers. I've made hamburger casserole and little hamburger meatloafs. We have ground sirloin at least once a week. Such a versatile meat. This weekend I made hamburger soup. I wanted a warm and hearty soup for a weekend up on the mountain! so instead of mustard, pickles, and ketchup, like in my usual hamburger recipes...I added veggies! Carrots, potatoes, onions, celery, etc. Follow along and see how it came together!
