Cheeseburger Chowder goes to Patriots football game

Friends who have been long term season ticket holders are always looking for a new soup/chowder to take for tailgating at Gillette Stadium. This year I suggested that they try my Cheeseburger Chowder. It is always a hit especially with men as it has a delicious cheesy flavor and plenty of ground hamburger. I suggested they serve them with Snowflake Rolls from Big Y for dunking.

I have highlighted the recipe on a previous blog and I have included a link for you to check it out. It can also be found in the Soup chowder in my first cookbook, the Taste and Tales of Massachusetts.

Cheeseburger Chowder for These Cold Winter Days

Cheeseburger ChowderFor the past few weeks, Massachusetts has been experiencing a taste of winter – snow, snow, and more snow, cold and winds. The cold isn’t so bad if it were not for the wind which goes right through you. On days like this, there is nothing like a hot bowl of soup or chowder and my Cheeseburger Chowder fits the fill. Serve it with a salad, some artisan bread and a glass of wine and you have a delicious hardy meal. The recipe is from the Taste and Tales of Massachusetts.
