In a large saucepan or pan, saute the following for about 10 minutes or until tender:
3/4 cup diced onion
3/4 cup diced celery
|Vegetables and burger|
1 T. butter
After the vegetables are tender to tender/crisp, add:
3 cups chicken broth
4 cups diced potatoes
1 - 1.5 lb. ground beef, browned and drained
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. parsley
Bring to a boil and simmer until potatoes are tender.
|This is the rue - or the flour/milk mixture|
When it is smooth, add:
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 1/2 cup milk
Whisk together well and
add to vegetable/meat mixture.
2 c. American Cheese, cubed (I used Velveeta, white the first time and yellow this time)
Simmer on low heat, stirring occasionally and allowing the cheese to melt. Then add:
1/4 cup sour cream
Mix well, heat through and serve hot!
