A liquid cheeseburger that tastes just like the solid version you love so much!
You love cheeseburgers, right? Ever thought of having one in the form of a soup? When you take your first spoonful your brain will tell you that something does not add up. This soup tastes just like the solid burger you enjoy so much, but has a completely different mouth feel to it! (Well, it’s a soup, so this might not come as a surprise). Your mind will shout that someone is playing tricks on you! It’s the perfect dish for turning heads and raised eyebrows, as your guest won’t believe what they just ate.
Next to being delicious you are sneaking more tomatoes into the meal than you would usually have in a plain old burger. The good thing is that you can serve the soup with an array of different burger toppings. Think of bacon, pickles, sliced red onion, tomatoes, lettuce and of course more cheese! Everyone can help themselves and customize their own cheeseburger bowl.
A cheeseburger wouldn’t be a cheeseburger without a sesame bread roll! Slice up some sesame rolls and toast them in the oven. You will have crunchy bread sticks that your guest can use to mop up all the delicious goodness in their bowls.

Make a delicious liquid cheeseburger
Roughly chop the onions and finely dice the garlic. Peel the sweet potato and cut into 2x2cm cubes.
Put a big pot on high heat and add the ground beef. Break up beef into smaller chunks and brown for about 4 minutes. Add onion and garlic to the beef and brown for another 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Reduce heat to medium high, stir in flour and cook for another 2 minutes. Add beef broth and diced sweet potato. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, slice your sesame buns into strips and toast them in the oven.
Add diced tomatoes, tomato puree, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and half of the cheese. Keep stirring until everything is combined and the cheese has melted.
Pour in the milk and give another stir to end up with a smooth soup. Season with a good amount of black pepper, give a taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.
Spoon your cheeseburger soup into big bowls and sprinkle over more grated cheese.
Serve your liquid cheeseburgers with the toasted bread strips and your favorite cheeseburger toppings!
