If you’re wondering what to serve with your cheeseburger soup, you’ve come to the right place.
In this article, I list 42 of the most popular side dishes for cheeseburger soup.
In a rush? Here’s the short answer.
The best dishes to serve with cheeseburger soup are air fryer onion rings, chimichurri garlic bread, Italian chopped salad, and zucchini fries. You can also serve refrigerator pickles, smashed brussels sprouts, or grilled avocado. For a refreshing topper, try pico de gallo.
Ready? Let’s jump right in.
Air fryer onion rings
If you’re a fan of fried food and don’t have an air fryer yet, this is your sign to go and get one!
A few spritzes of oil are all you need to get super crispy onion rings.
Just like with deep frying, you’ll need to work in batches for best results. Overcrowding the air fryer will leave you with sad, soggy rings.
Pair them with your cheeseburger soup for a deconstructed burger.
Why we love this recipe: you can indulge in these with less guilt.
Chimichurri garlic bread
Chimichurri isn’t just for steaks – it’s fabulous on top of cheesy garlic bread too.
This popular Argentinian condiment adds a bright and zesty flavor to the garlic bread, making it perfect for cutting through your rich cheeseburger soup.
Pro tip: make the chimichurri mix slightly ahead of time so it has time to rest while the flavors develop.
Why we love this recipe: everyone will be asking for the recipe.
Refrigerator bread and butter pickles
What are bread and butter pickles I hear you ask?
They’re slightly sweeter than dill pickles, because they’re brined in a vinegar and sugar mixture (along with some other spices). But they still have that signature tang.
But where the name came from is anyone’s guess! There are a few different theories.
Why we love this recipe: you can get so much use out of one jar.
Italian chopped salad
Aside from the usual veggies, this chopped salad is packed with chickpeas, salami, and sun-dried tomatoes, making this salad extra filling.
And everything is tied together with a tangy homemade Italian dressing.
It’s a simple and refreshing salad to serve next to a bowl of steaming cheeseburger soup.
Why we love this recipe: it’s fully loaded and easy to customize.
Add some spice to your meal with these buffalo cauliflower.
Not only are they smothered in everyone’s favorite sauce, but they also have a layer of smokiness from a few charred spots.
The recipe recommends broiling them for a couple minutes after you’ve added the sauce to ensure the florets absorb all the sweet-but-tangy flavors.
Why we love this recipe: each serving only has 94 calories.
Parmesan zucchini fries
Zucchini fries are my favorite low-carb alternative to potato fries.
Unlike spuds, zucchini sticks won’t crisp up on their own, so this recipe recommends a breadcrumb and parmesan coating to get a golden, crisp exterior.
Pair these zucchini fries with your cheeseburger soup for a fun and healthy twist on the classic burger and fries combo.
Why we love this recipe: you can play around with the seasonings to suit your tastes.
Green bean salad with lemon and dill
Not a fan of leafy salads? This green bean salad is an excellent alternative.
Blanching the green beans gives them a crisp-tender texture to contrast your smooth soup, and turns their green color from dull to bright.
Pro-tip: dry the green beans after blanching to ensure the citrusy lemon dressing won’t slide off.
Why we love this recipe: the leftovers will still taste great the next day.
Jalapeno cornbread muffins
Whether I’m making a classic cornbread or this sweet and spicy muffin version, buttermilk is a mainstay in my ingredients list.
This fermented dairy product adds a subtle tang to the cornbread and ensures a light, moist texture.
Dunk these tender cornbread muffins in your cheeseburger soup, or use them to soak up the last of the luscious, cheesy broth.
Why we love this recipe: these will be gone in a flash upon serving.
Smashed brussels sprouts
This recipe is a total game-changer. It will change the way you think about sprouts.
First you steam the sprouts, then the fun bit. Smash them!
Smashing the sprouts increases the surface area making them extra crispy. And there’s loads of nooks and crannies for all the seasoning to fall into.
Why we love this recipe: it’s a tasty and exciting way to serve this polarizing veg.
Pico de gallo
Looking for a fun and fresh soup topper?
An authentic pico de gallo won’t let you down.
The red and purple tomatoes and onions will look great against the creamy backdrop of your soup, and it doesn’t disappoint in the taste department either.
If you want a spicier salsa, no problem. Just add some jalapeno seeds or a pinch of cayenne pepper.
Why we love this recipe: it’s so easy it’s impossible to mess up.
Guacamole or sliced avocado is a common topping for burgers. So why not serve it with your cheeseburger soup too?
And have you ever tried grilled avocados?
Grilling the avocado adds a subtle yet addicting smoky flavor to mix.
Pro tip: you’ll need a slightly under ripe avocado for this, if the avocado is too ripe it will turn mushy.
Why we love this recipe: it’s a unique way to enjoy a popular side.
Cheesy beef quesadillas
Double up on the cheeseburger theme with some cheeseburger quesadillas to dip in your cheeseburger soup.
Is that too many cheeseburgers in one sentence? Never!
Psst… these go great with some guacamole on the side too.
Why we love this recipe: it’s a cheesy delight both adults and kids won’t be able to resist.
