Easy Hamburger Soup

         This is one of those meals that I could eat every day during the fall and winter. It is hearty, filling and super delicious. This soup is a perfect soup to make. I have been able to use leftover meatloaf and vegetables from the week.

This makes an easy meal to clean out the refrigerator by using what is left from the night before. As kids growing up, our family ate canned vegetables in the winter. We had a large family though, so 1 can would not be enough to feed us. Needless to say that would go into the pot.

            What makes this even easier is that when you add canned vegetables, or beans add the juices that are in the cans. Most are packed in water, but when sitting with vegetables for a while, will soak some flavor out of the vegetable. This way you still get it all. When I make this, I go through the refrigerator first. Most often I will be grabbing some frozen mixed vegetables from the freezer. Growing up, mom always made this with potatoes, so that is how I have put it on here.

            There are truly so many names for this soup and so many different versions that it has been made over time. I do believe this is likely one of the first soups ever! Just kidding, but seriously, it is a classic!

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Can I use macaroni or pasta instead of potatoes?

You certainly can. I most often use potatoes as it is more filling for my family.

            What should I serve with soup?

My family will generally have a dinner salad and a loaf of crusty bread to go with the soup.

            How do I store this soup?

IF you have any left, store it in an airtight container and in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. You can also freeze this by putting it into a freezer safe bag or storage container.
