Dano on the Counter – Taste it Tuesday

Dan Burkhart, host of Dano on the Counter, joins KC O’Day for this week’s Weis Market’s Taste it Tuesday.

Dano shows us how to make a cheeseburger soup!  Here is Dano’s recipe:

  • ½ lb lean ground beef
  • ½ medium onion finely chopped
  • 2 large carrots peeled and chopped
  • 1 rib celery chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoon ground mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups low sodium chicken or beef broth
  • 1 lb potatoes cut into ½” cubes (about 3 medium)
  • 1 cup half and half cream
  • 3 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • In a large pot or dutch oven, cook ground beef and onions until almost browned, about 5 minutes. Drain fat if needed.
  • Add carrots and celery and cook until slightly softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Add garlic, salt, parsley, mustard and pepper and cook 1 minute.
  • Add broth and potatoes.
  • Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes until potatoes and carrots are tender.
  • Whisk together cream and corn starch and add to soup along with cheese, cooking and stirring on low until thickened. Serve.
