Hamburger Soup IV

Hamburger Soup IV

Jennifer Heiman

This recipe is a favorite in my family. My grandma says it was a soup of the Depression era that evolved over time. As each of us made it for our families, we added to it. It is simple, affordable, and quite good. Add pearl onions and sliced zucchini, if desired.

Made this last week, and I have to tell you I loved it! I didn't have carrots, and used one large can of whole tomatoes, chopped up, and added potatoes and pasta. I chopped up the onions and sauteed them with the hamburger meat. If my kids don't notice them, they eat them! I just made little tiny hamburgers to use tonight in the soup -- just like the Chunky soup!! Great recipe!

This was really good and really easy. It was snowing like crazy so I was happy to find that I had almost all the ingredients in the house. I left out the celery but doubt that made any difference at all. I do have to say it was a bit greasy so next time I think I'll try ground turkey.I would also suggest,especially if you plan on leftovers, more broth as the macaroni & rice really suck up the fluid. I like recipes like this because they really give you a lot of room to play. Either way this was a great snowy day dinner!
