So good! It's a long time favorite. A must when the weather turns cold. We serve this with a big slice of pumpernickle bread.

II feel bad I can't rate this a 5, but had a problem with the soup. Even though I didn't use the boullion I had to doctor it up because we thought it was too salty. I added 2 diced potatoes to absorb some of the salt and some more canned tomatoes. I also used 3 carrots instead of the 1C, just because we like them. After that, I thought the soup was good so almost didn't make the roux. I'm so glad I did. The soup was so much richer, plus it cut down on the saltiness a bit. I will definitely make this again as written, adding extra carrots and a diced potato, but will use low-sodium beef broth next time. Because the addition of Italian seasoning, worcestershire sauce and hot pepper sauce plus the roux this made this a step above other hamburger soups I've made..
