Easy Crockpot Macaroni Hamburger Soup
This has become a new favourite to make in our slow cooker! I love a good hamburger soup, but adding noodles to it turns this into a really hearty meal. On it’s own hamurger soup is filling but once you get those elbow macaroni noodles in there, you almost have a plate of pasta!
Which Crockpot should I use to Make Slow Cooker Macaroni Hamburger Soup?
For this recipe, we recommend a 6-8 quart oval shaped crockpot (slow cooker) such as the one pictured below. While this recipe will certainly work in other styles, this one affords the right amount of space for just the right amount of food. This is a large capacity crockpot at 8 quarts – if you are serious about slow cooking then this baby is affordable, has amazing reviews and is beautiful!
You can easily find this crockpot on Amazon here if you currently don’t own one and would like to purchase it.

Tips for Making the Best Slow Cooker Macaroni Hamburger Soup
- Use your favourite frozen vegetable mix, I happen to love the one with lima beans! You an use just peas and carrots, just corn and carrots, really this is such an an easy soup to customize that you really can’t go wrong with any choices!
- The tomato soup is what gives this classic soup that really retro taste like what your Mom or Grandma used to make. If you don’t want to use it, you can add a can of diced tomatoes and a little extra salt instead.
- You can definitely sub in ground turkey for the meat if you want!
- This is an easy recipe to double if you have a very large capacity crockpot!
- This is a hit at parties, make it and let guests help themselves!
