Leftover Hamburger Soup

I woke up on Monday morning with a lot of leftover Hamburger Pattys from Father’s Day Weekend and I was hamburger’ed out!

I was trying to think of how to repurpose the meat, and somehow came up with this! It was surprisingly delicious and my husband had me make it again that week!

It was super simple and I feel like most of you have these ingredients (which are super affordable).


  • Leftover beef hamburgers (however, if you buy ground meat for this, get something leaner like 85-95% lean meat, so it’s healthier)
  • Potatoes (any variety)
  • Cheese (I used a Mexican blend)
  • 2 Carrot Stalks
  • 2 Celery Stalks
  • Garlic
  • Thyme
  • Tomato Paste
  • Beef Stock (1 Carton)




  • I rendered out the beef first, but since these were meant to be hamburgers – they were fatty. Once the meat was browned, I drained some of the grease!
  • I added the veggies/potatoes and sautéed them until they were softened
  • Add 2-3 Tbsp Tomato Paste until cooked through
  • Add about 1/2 cup cheese (or however much you like) – I found that adding the cheese directly on the mixture helped it stick on
  • Add garlic and herbs until fragrant
  • Add beef stock
  • Simmer for 30-45 minutes or until potatoes cook through (which will depend on their size)



This was such an easy 1 pot meal and Jack is obsessed with it – so if you are feeding a toddler at home, it could be a family winner! It’s kind of like hamburger helper – only healthier, cleaner and without the chemicals and preservatives!


Hope you enjoy!
