Best Ever Hamburger Soup

"Don't be fooled by the title of this soup. It has wonderful flavor and is so hearty that it can be used as the main course along with some homemade bread. It is delicious. I make it a lot in the winter months when we have a lot of snow--it warms you up. You may use rice in place of the barley, or a little of both."

    I did not have any canned tomatoes so I chopped up 3 roma tomatoes and threw those in instead. I also substituted 1/4 cup of v8 for the ketchup. I didn't add the seasoning salt but I did use the full amount of broth. I didn't think it was overly salty until we started in on the left overs. So I do think I will decrease the broth next time. I like lots of veggies in my soup so I used 4 carrots and two stalks of celery. Also, instead of barley I used white rice. Very good! I will definitely be making this again.

    This was very good! I didn't have bouillon cubes so I used 6 tsp. of the granules instead. The diced tomatoes I used were fire roasted as well which added a nice touch. I also added 10oz frozen corn (thawed) and 1 celery stalk.

    Very good soup! Used 4 bouillon cubes and an extra cup of water. Out of carrots, so subbed with frozen mixed veggies.

    I was given this recipe years ago, and it only called for 2 bouillon cubes. I can't imagine increasing that number! I do, however, use 4 carrots instead of two. Everything else remains the same, and it has always gotten rave reviews from my family and friends. It's even better if it sits a day after making it.
