Turkey Burger Soup

Burger SoupAfter receiving a foot of snow, the Kid Cooks and I decided it was time for a simple hearty soup to fight off the winter blues. This is easy to do with pure ingredients that many of us have in our houses. We make a larger pot for the family, but here is a smaller version for the individual living on their own or a couple of roommates. Make some Cheesy Drop Biscuits to go with it and you have a heartwarming winter meal.
