This Easy Burger Soup is perfect for those dreary cold days when you don’t have much time – or energy – to make dinner.

This recipe comes from frequent contributor, Holly Clegg. She says when she has a big pot of hearty Easy Burger Soup brewing on the stove, it puts a smile on everyone’s face.

Soup’s also a terrific way to get vegetables into everyone’s diet without too many complaints!

Burger soup makes dinner a breeze

I like serving this Easy Burger Soup in bowls, but my children always put it into mugs. I guess it gives them an excuse to drink every last drop!

What I also like about this burger soup recipe is that I can make it with little advanced planning.

I always have a tube of ground sirloin in the freezer and canned vegetables in my pantry or frozen vegetables in the freezer.  (You can substitute frozen for canned, if you like.)

However, you can make it even easier by doubling the recipe and freezing half for another night when you don't have time to cook.

Just thaw the soup in the refrigerator and heat up on the stovetop or in the microwave.

It’s also the perfect soup recipe for entertaining! Double or triple the recipe and keep the soup warm in a slow cooker for your guests to serve themselves in the buffet line.

Best of all, this burger soup recipe is naturally gluten free!
