Hackfleischsuppe – Ground Meat Soup Recipe

(German version below.)

This is a great comfort soup that is very forgiving as far as substitutions. Our 5 year old loves this soup, but beware the fat content! ­čśë

Difficulty: simple
Preparation Time: 35 minutes
Portions: 6


  • 1 pound, ground meat (I usually use turkey, but meatloaf mix is closer to the mix our German relatives use, and I have also used beef in a pinch.)
  • 1 medium onion
  • 5 bunches of leek (I have also used scallions instead, with no drastic taste change)
  • 2 cans, mushrooms OR 2 cups of fresh mushrooms
  • 2 Liters of broth, beef or vegetable works best
  • 2 c. of Velveeta, or similar type of cheese product
