This version, a hearty soup, can be made in two different ways depending on your time and preferences.

  1. I found a recipe on Pinterest called Cheeseburger Soup.I made the cheesebuger soup and it turned out great and looked exacted like the picture! I read some of the comments on here and looked at the recipe then compared it to the cheeseburger soup. I’m going to tweek this recipe and make it my own, as I so often do with recipes. But it looks delicious!

  2. I love chicken cordon bleu and I was really excited to find this recipe on Pinterest. For us, it was just okay. I feel like mashing 2-3 cups was not near enough to yield the pictured consistency. There was more broth and less thickness. Plus, I felt like it really needed more Dijon mustard. I added some to my individual portions and greatly enjoyed it. Lastly, the Swiss cheese melted very inconsistently – not creamy at all. Maybe that was an issue with buying the generic brand cheese; but the cost of ingredients adds up quickly in this dish. Overall, it was a good soup, but not one I’d make again.

    1. The cheese MAY not freeze well. Sometimes it will separate and curdle. Reheating doesn’t fix this but it doesn’t affect the taste, just the texture.
