Healthy Dill-icious Cheeseburger Soup {Instant Pot or Stove Top}

For Instant Pot

  • Press the saute button and once heated, pour in the olive oil.
  • Once the oil is shimmering and hot, add the ground turkey and saute for 3-5 minutes. 
  • Press cancel. Add the remaining ingredients EXCEPT THE CHEESE.

  • After the pressure cycle is complete, let the pot naturally depressurize for 10 minutes. 
  • Quick release the remaining pressure.

For Stove Top

  • Heat the oil on medium heat in a stock pot. 
  • When the oil is shimmering, add the turkey and onion and saute until no pink remains. 
  • Add all remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. 
  • Reduce to a low simmer and cook for 20-30 minutes (until potatoes are desired doneness).


Be very careful adding additional salt to this recipe. The pickles add quite a bit of salt to this soup so you may not need to add any additional salt.
