Frugal Hearty Meatloaf SoupThe weather is very cold, and I love making homemade soups. When I can make them frugal, that's even better. This one is made from a half of a stuffed meatloaf I froze, from a recipe I posted recently. Lots of great flavors went into the meatloaf and this soup, but you can still make this soup with any meats you have in the freezer.



  • 1/2 frozen meatloaf or you can use either ground beef or sausage meat (1 pound)
  • 1 bag frozen diced onion & peppers ($.99)
  • 2 cartons chicken broth ($2.00)
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 bag (16 oz) whole leaf spinach ($1.99)
  • 2 cans stewed tomatoes ($1.98)
  • 1 can dark red kidney beans (store brand) ($.69)
  • 1/2 cup Orzo macaroni ($1.00)
  • seasonings to taste; season salt, black pepper, basil, old bay seasoning, garlic powder or minced, sugar, thyme, rosemary, and bay leaves. Start with a 1/4 teaspoon...let it simmer, do a test taste for adjusting the flavors.
  • shredded Parmesan or mozzarella cheese


  1. Using frozen cooked meat or any meat, break it up into small bits and cook it up in the bottom of your soup pot. Add the bag of onions & peppers.
  2. Fill with chicken broth and water.
  3. Add tomatoes, spinach, beans, pasta and seasonings.
  4. Frugal Hearty Meatloaf Soup

  5. Bring this to a boil, then drop down to a medium simmer for at least an hour and a half. Test taste for seasonings.
  6. When ready to serve, put in a soup bowl and add a handful of shredded parmesan or mozzarella cheese on top. Great with garlic toast and a salad.
