Cheeseburger Soup Tips

Will American cheese melt into soup?

Cheese like American and Velveeta are specifically processed in a way that makes them melt beautifully and taste fantastic in a soup like this. You can totally even make it with only those cheeses.


How do you store cheeseburger soup? Can I freeze it?

You can store soup by letting it cool completely and placing it in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Soups with starches and dairy (like cheeseburger soup) are not ideal for freezing. 


Can I add bacon?

Yes, you can always add bacon. Top bowls with crumbled cooked bacon for a bacon-cheeseburger twist.
