Can we really soup it? Or rather transform any dish into a soup while maintaining the dish’s classic flavor profile? Can you soup a cheeseburger? Yes. Swedish Meatballs? Yes. Lasagna? Need I say more? We’ve compiled some of our best soup transformations. Go through our list below and you’ll see that classic Americana dishes can be redone into delicious soups!

Creamy Lasagna Soup

Are you ready to learn about one of the best soups we’ve made all year? Seriously, we’ve come to feel really strongly about soup in general – we can’t believe we ever scoffed at it! – but this extra creamy lasagna soup truly is amazing. Not only is it packed with all the lasagna essentials, but it truly does taste just like the classic pasta dish that we always want to eat but never really want to make. This soup is a much, much easier way of getting all the greatness of a lasagna, but packed into a hearty, warming soup.

Slow Cooker Swedish Meatball Soup

Slow Cooker Swedish Meatball Soup
Swedish meatballs was one of those treat recipes when I was growing up. We had them at potlucks and special occasions, but in our family they weren’t an everyday type of meal. In my mind it’s still a festive dish, but the fact that this Swedish meatball soup is made in the slow cooker makes this an achievable weeknight meal. If you’re looking for a hearty and comforting soup then look no further.

Cheeseburger Soup

I don’t think I have to tell you how great a cheeseburger is – it’s pretty universally understood. And that’s precisely why it works so well as a soup! Savory hunks of seasoned ground beef in a creamy, cheesy broth? Yes, please! And I know it’s hard to eat a cheeseburger without a side of fries, but this time the potatoes are right in the soup with everything else.

One-Pot Beef Stroganoff Soup

It’s no secret that beef stroganoff is mighty fine comfort food. Yet it’s equally apparent that soup does a wonderful job of warming the soul. So why not bring the two together and create one singular bowl of comfort? That’s exactly what we’ve done here. (And, oh my was it a good plan.) A hearty soup that’s punctuated by tender egg noodles and fresh herbs and surrounded by a silky, slightly creamy broth… it’s just as cozy as you’d expect. (And did I mention that it comes together in one pot? It does. In less than 30 minutes.)
