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. 
Cheeseburger Chowder with Hamburger Mix
    ½      pint hamburger mix
  1         medium  Potato -- peeled and cubed - 5 1/2 - 6 ounces
  1         tablespoon  green pepper – chopped (optional)

  1          Cup  milk
  1 ½      tablespoons  flour
     ½      cup  shredded cheddar cheese -- 2 ounces
1.      In saucepan, combine vegetables and water. Cover and cook until potatoes are just tender; 15-20 minutes.

**If you don’t have hamburger mix, brown together ½ pound ground beef, 1/4 cup onion and 1/4 cup celery, chopped.  Continue with recipe at step 1.


  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.
