It has already snowed here in central NY one day it was 62 the next we had a snowstorm. I am certain this year will lead to lots of snow and cold winter days.  That means lots of soups, stews, and casserole’s in my Instant pot.

Thanksgiving is over and I wanted to try out Instant Pot Cheeseburger soup. I never made this soup before so it was a risk but I keep seeing it on Pinterest and had to give it a shot in the Instant Pot. Check out my 20 must-have Instant Pot Recipes.

Instant Pot Cheeseburger Soup

Instant Pot Cheeseburger Soup 

I skipped a good amount of prep by reaching for frozen hashbrowns as the base. It will save you time and just simplify the process of the soup. A creamy broth, ground beef, potatoes, and of course cheesy goodness in every single bite. 

Can I Make This Cheeseburger Soup with Ground Turkey in Replace of Beef 

Sure. You can use any meat that you can ground up. Turkey, chicken, pork or even venison. Just make sure that you cook the meat all the way through and ground it up like you would ground beef. If it is extra fatty, drain the fat before or it will make the soup extra greasy.

Can I Use Diced Potatoes Instead of Hashbrowns 

Of course. If you want to feel free to peel and dice up your own potatoes or even shred to toss in and cook. For my meal prepping for freezer meals, I found that frozen hash browns work fantastic and save you time during the prep. But if you want fresh go for it. 

Do You Quick Release Cheeseburger Soup

Yes. After you have cooked your soup and the timer goes off on the Instant Pot. You will then do a quick release of the pressure. Your soup will be super hot, and ready for you to mix in your heavy cream and cheese, then serve. 

What To Serve With Instant Pot Cheeseburger Soup 

We call this a meal in one type of soup. I have also paired it with a few other sides on occasions that I can share below. But if you want to eat the soup alone, go for it. This easy cheeseburger soup is hearty and filling. 

  • Salad
  • Half of a sandwich
  • Dinner Rolls or Instant Pot Bread
  • Fresh veggies and dip on the side
  • Crackers

What Type of Toppings Go With Cheeseburger Soup 

I love adding all things to do with a cheeseburger, and of course out of the box toppings. Serve it plain or dress it up. If you are having guests over, maybe do a soup bar. Load all the fixing in bowls and set it out and let them create their own bowl of soup. 

  • Green onions
  • Regular onions diced
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Diced pickles
  • Splash of hot sauce for heat
  • Chopped Tomatoes

Add whatever toppings you want. This is a versatile soup that will pair with tons of flavors. So have fun and get creative.

How to Store Leftover Pressure Cooker Cheeseburger Soup 

Allow the soup to cool and then transfer into airtight containers and tuck in the fridge. You can do one large container or if you are like me, prep them for weeknight meals or lunches. I use single-serve containers and then toss in lunch pails and head out the door for an easy reheatable lunch!

So it's 6 cups of beef broth? Also it mentions heavy cream in the "do I QR this soup" section but heavy cream is never mentioned in the ingredients? Was hoping to make this tonight for dinner

You said: "Yes! I share all the instructions below on how you can meal prep and make this soup into an Instant Pot freezer meal that the whole family can enjoy at a later time!" But, I don't see the instructions about making it a freezer meal.
