Top 12 Side Dishes for Cheeseburger Soup

Here are our top 12 picks for side dishes that will take your cheeseburger soup to the next level:

1 – Garlic Bread

You know what’s awesome? Garlic bread. We love it. It’s crispy on the outside and soft inside. Loaded with garlic and butter, it’s perfect for that extra oomph with your cheeseburger soup.

We bake ours until it’s golden brown. The garlic gives it a punch, and here’s a pro tip: a sprinkle of parsley for that extra flair. The buttery flavor is heaven.

2 – Cornbread

Ever thought cornbread could make your cheeseburger soup even more awesome? We did. Imagine moist bites of sweet and savory goodness. This southern staple is a crowd-pleaser, period.

Cornmeal, flour, sugar, eggs, milk, and baking powder. We bake it until the edges are golden and the center is fluffy. The butter melts right in. Add a bit of honey for extra sweetness. Trust us, cornbread and cheeseburger soup are a match made in heaven.

3 – Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potato fries are our go-to for a crispy, slightly sweet side. They add a nice contrast to cheeseburger soup.

We slice sweet potatoes into thin strips. Tossing them in olive oil, salt, and pepper gives them a great flavor.

Bake until they’re golden and crispy. The sweetness paired with the soup is just perfect. Sometimes, we throw in a dash of paprika for a slight kick. Sweet and savory, simple and delicious.

4 – Pretzel Rolls

We love pretzel rolls for their chewy texture and salty exterior. They’re the perfect companion to cheeseburger soup. Soft inside with a golden-brown crust, they have a nice balance of flavors. Flour, yeast, water, salt, and baking soda create these beauties.

Boil the rolls in baking soda water before baking. This step gives them that iconic pretzel taste. A sprinkle of coarse salt adds the final touch.

5 – Bacon and Cheddar Scones

Who knew scones could be savory and pair perfectly with cheeseburger soup? We whip these up with flour, baking powder, butter, milk, bacon, and sharp cheddar. They have a delectable smoky and cheesy goodness.

Crispy bacon pieces add crunch, while melted cheddar offers a rich taste. Bake them until golden brown. We love the mix of textures. Fluffy inside, slightly crispy outside – pure perfection.

6 – Tomato and Cucumber Salad

Fresh, light, and crunchy – that’s our tomato and cucumber salad. We start with ripe tomatoes and crisp cucumbers. Add some red onion for a bit of zing.

Drizzle with olive oil and a splash of lemon juice. We love a sprinkle of salt and pepper for seasoning. The flavors are bright and refreshing.

Perfect for a bit of contrast to the hearty cheeseburger soup. We always have it at our table.

7 – Roasted Broccoli

Roasted broccoli is life-changing, trust us. It’s lightly charred for that earthy taste we crave. We keep it simple: broccoli, olive oil, salt, and pepper. The key? High heat.

A bit of lemon zest and garlic gives it a zippy kick. It’s crispy and tender at the same time. Just toss it all together and roast until golden. Perfectly complements the cheeseburger soup.

8 – Sauteed Kale with Garlic

You gotta love sautéed kale with garlic. It’s simple, yet packs a punch of flavor. We use fresh kale, olive oil, and garlic cloves.

The garlic slightly caramelizes, adding a touch of sweetness to the kale’s natural bitterness. We love the crispy edges. Tossing everything in a hot pan, the smells are unreal.

Pro tip: add a splash of lemon. It brightens up the dish.

9 – Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges

We love roasted sweet potato wedges. They’re crispy on the outside, sweet inside. They add a perfect sweet crunch to cheeseburger soup. Roast with olive oil, salt, pepper, a bit of paprika.

The key to perfect wedges? Thin strips cooked at high heat. We love the earthy flavor paired with the sweetness. Crispy, golden, and just so good.

Bite, savor, enjoy. Simple and delicious every time.

10 – Dill Pickle Spears

Dill pickle spears are our crunchy little lifesavers. Crisp and tangy, they add a nice twist to cheeseburger soup. We slice cucumbers lengthwise, and soak them in vinegar, water, salt, and dill.

The brine is what makes them pop. Tart and refreshing, perfect palate cleanser. We swear by adding garlic cloves for a bit of heat. They’re easy to make, and we munch on them all day.

11 – Crispy Onion Strings

Who doesn’t love crispy onion strings? They add a crunchy texture and sweet, oniony goodness to your cheeseburger soup experience. Thinly sliced onions, soaked in buttermilk, then dredged in seasoned flour. Fry them up until golden brown.

They’re light, crispy, and slightly salty. Perfect for topping or dipping. We get that addictive crunch every time. The balance of flavors is spot on. Easy to make and even easier to devour.

12 – Cheesy Garlic Knots

Ready for the ultimate cheesy garlic fix? We sure are. Our cheesy garlic knots hit that spot with their gooey, flavorful charm. Made from dough, garlic, butter, and a generous amount of mozzarella cheese, they never fail to impress.

Bake until golden and the cheese bubbles. The garlic butter? Absolutely essential.

They’re perfect: crispy, cheesy, and finger-licking good. Our family favorite for any meal.
