Brian's blood pressure was up a bit today and I have nixed our regular Friday night pizza in favor of a bowl of this warm comforting soup. According to Dr. Bede and his nurse salt is the big elephant in the room when it comes to BP. So no pizza tonight and I cut out adding salt in the soup.
There is a restaurant in the Iowa town where they live called the Smokey Row and they serve this soup. It is said to be so popular that VP Joe Biden stopped there and it may have been for this very soup.....
Ingredients for #29 is fine Cheeseburger Chowder:
1 pound lean ground beef
3 C. chicken broth
3 C. O'Brian style frozen hash browns
3/4 C. diced onion
3/4 C. diced celery
1 t. basil
1 t. Italian seasoning
1/4 C. flour
1 1/2 C. milk
3/4 t. pepper
garlic powder to taste
8 ounces cubed Velveeta cheese
3/4 t. salt & black pepper
1/4 C. sour cream
Brown the beef and season with the salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste. Add the broth, hash browns,onion, celery,basil,and Italian seasoning. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat. Cover and simmer for 12 minutes, until the potatoes are tender.
Were the truth known I eyeballed most of the ingredients and may have used a bit more sour cream than suggested. I omitted all of the salt and it was still very full flavored.
