“I love Kickin’ Cheeseburger Soup because it reminds me of my grandparents. Grandma would cook this when Grandpa would take the grandkids fishing. She knew Grandpa was an awful fisherman – spending most of his time socializing at neighbor’s docks – so she needed something the grandkids would like and that could be stored if Grandpa actually got lucky fishing, and Cheeseburger Soup was born. The ‘Kickin” part is a modern addition to spice it up a bit, yet stay true to the roots.”
