Cheeseburger Chowder with Hamburger Mix

This is another quick recipe using hamburger mix instead of browning ground beef and vegetables.  You can use either your home-canned or frozen hamburger mix to shorten preparation time and mess.

    ½      pint hamburger mix
  1         medium  Potato -- peeled and cubed - 5 1/2 - 6 ounces

  1. Hi, Sue! I posted a few days back on your recipe for the hamburger mix. Well, I have had a chance to make the cheeseburger chowder twice now, and I have to say that we love it! I do add a fair amount of salt and pepper, especially salt because I am a salt fiend, lol! It really is very easy and very quick. Tonight we had it with a side of penne drizzled with olive oil, a bit of garlic, basil, salt, pepper, and Parmesan cheese. I added another side of a sliced apple. We loved it. It was a good summer dinner--not too heavy, just right. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    1. Glad to hear you like's my version of a menu favorite at a local popular coffee-shop that serves a lunch meals too.

    2. It really is good. My daughter went crazy for it! Now . . . if only I could get her in the kitchen more, haha!

    3. Good luck with that...although my son now cooks for his family.


Hi...we'd love to hear from you.
