HAMBURGER POTATO SOUP – The Southern Lady Cooks

by Admin

This hamburger potato soup can be made on top of the stove or in the crock pot.  It is a recipe my family loves and the spinach and cheese just makes this dish.  Make this on a cold day or make it anytime with some of my Southern cornbread hoecakes for a warm comfort food meal.  This soup is very versatile as you can add whatever you have on hand and make it your own.  Green beans, okra and celery could also be added to this great soup.  It keeps well for several days and the recipe could actually be cut in half or doubled.  I have not tried freezing this soup but see no reason why it could not be frozen.

Hamburger potato soup ingredients needed: 

Ground beef

Green onion or 1 medium onion

Minced garlic

Chopped or sliced carrots

Frozen corn

Fresh spinach

Beef broth



Black pepper


Dried basil

Dried parsley flakes

Shredded sharp cheddar cheese


Cornstarch (optional, used to thicken soup only)

Recipe feedback: “I made this soup for the third time yesterday!! I cook it in the crockpot. This time I used half ground beef and half sweet Italian sausage,,,,,,,yummm! Used potatoes, carrots, onions from the garden, frozen corn kernels, and fresh spinach. We enjoy it with a salad.” – Faith

“I tried this last night and my husband really loved it. I did reduce the parsley to 2 tsp and since I was out of milk—-I used half evaporated milk and half water (courtesy of the Internet!) I whisked the milk and cornstarch separately and added it when the potatoes were just about done. I also made this on the stove top. I added more cornstarch to try to thicken it a bit more. Thank you so much for sharing it!” – Anu

“I made this soup for our tailgating party! So hearty and so good. I added your cornbread muffins and they all raved about it. Plan to definitely keep this one in the rotation. I love all your recipes. ” – Pam
