Chef Meg’s Makeover: Cheeseburger Soup


Cheeseburger soup was not one of the recipes that I prepared in culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu. I took one look at the ingredient list (1/2 pound processed cheese!) and the nutrition info (almost 1/2 day's worth of salt in every serving), and I knew I had to make this over. You could eat a McDonald's cheeseburger and small fries for just about the same amount of calories!

Get Warm and Cozy with Fall Soup Recipes


As the weather starts to turn colder, I find myself turning to my dutch oven to prepare my favorite Fall soup recipes. Not only does soup have a pleasant warming effect, but it is uniquely suited to incorporate the bountiful produce from the Autumn harvest. All you really need is a few fresh cut herbs, the spices that already inhabit your cupboard, and whatever proteins and vegetables hanging around your refrigerator and you are just minutes away from an easy one pot meal. Don't forget to re-use your soups as leftovers or freeze them to enjoy in the coming weeks. Check out these top soup recipes from SparkRecipes to get warm, get cozy, and get healthy.
