Potato Soup with Ground Beef
Warm and hearty comfort food. My family of 9, (yes, 9) loves this potato soup with ground beef. One of the few meals the entire family can agree upon and fits within our food allergies. Great on a cold day.
Optionally you can cook a couple of slices of bacon prior to the onions and celery, using the bacon renderings in place of the butter.
We actually double the recipe. When doing this only cook one portion of meat at a time otherwise the meat tends to boil rather than brown.
You can use any kind of shredded cheese you like.
