Cheeseburger Soup

So when I made this and saw what was in it I was like um is this going to taste good? And I must say it doesn’t look very appetizing either, sorry to say. But it doesn’t! But I am telling you its good!

Recipe

1 lb. ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 cup carrots, shredded
1 tsp dried scallions
1 tsp dried dill
2 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. flour
3 cups chicken or vegetable broth
2 cups peeled and diced potatoes (optional) (I ended up not adding these)
2 cups cheese, shredded
1 cup milk
salt and freshly ground pepper
2 Tbsp. sour cream (optional) (I didn’t add this either)
