Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

I decided to make a yummy twist to one of my most favorite and popular soups.  I changed a few ingredients and added bacon.  Bacon.  Bacon took this famous soup to a whole nother level.

baconcheeseburgersoupfinal2I hadn’t made this soup since last winter.  Totally forgot how amazing it was.  This soup makes quite a bit and is enough to feed a crowd.  I sent a giant bowl over to our neighbors.  I asked my neighbor how the soup was when I saw her that evening.  She didn’t seem to know what I was talking about.  Her husband ate it all!

This is a must make soup for the cooler months ahead.  It is absolutely delicious and creamy with bacon.  Did I mention that it has bacon?  Oh well it is packed with bacon. 🙂  It is such a hearty soup that the entire family will love!

  1. Yes, I’d have to agree – the bacon takes this to a whole new level. Love!

    • I made this today and everyone loved it I added a little boriqua spice and wa bam delicious. I
      will make this recipe again thanks

  2. Oh my- this is fabulous. Just printed for dinner this week.

  3. Oh, this looks so good! It isn’t soup weather yet where I am, but I am definitely saving this for when it’s cooler outside. Looks amazing!

  4. Does it freeze well?

  5. OH MY!! this is my favorite soup EVER! I found this recipe a few months ago and it has become a family favorite. Potato soup is my favorite soup and let me tell you, I will be making this kind from now on! thanks for sharing!! (even my picky toodlers like it!)

  6. My family isn’t really big on soup, but they have a massive love affair with BACON! Pinning this immediately and can’t wait to try it! Thanks bunches!!

  7. Soups!!

  8. Christina says:

    Made this tonight for dinner on a rainy, dreary day. Fabulous!

  9. My family loves soup! Tried the Cheeseburger soup last night. Next time I am adding the bacon and doubling the recipe!

  10. I tend to stray away from soups because they turn out horrible for me. However, I tried this and it came out amazing!! The recipe was quick and easy to follow. The longest part was probably peeling the potatoes (but who really enjoys that). I omitted the bacon initally then after I tasted it threw some in. Bacon definitely takes this soup to a whole new level.

  11. I found the soup to be a bit too thick and rather bland. To fix it, I added garlic, believe it or not, a squirt of mustard and a couple tablespoons of dill pickle relish. This really seemed to make it more cheeseburger like for me. I also added some additional broth to thin it. The soup was very tasteful after the changes. Over all, I would say It is a good recipe that can easily be made your own. Thanks!

  12. Thanks for another great recipe! In my husbands words, “I like how much meat there is in it.” It’s so hard to satisfy my family with a soup (which is hard because soup is my go to comfort food) but this one pulled it off.

    This cheeseburger soup is SCREAM’IN good!! I followed the recipe to the T. I wouldn’t change a thing. I love BACON ; )

  14. I love this soup. I omitted the potatoes, and used beef broth instead of chicken broth since this is a beef soup. I used cream cheese instead of sour cream. I addred garlic powder , brown mustard, and chopped dill pickles.

  15. Excellent recipe I’ve made the soup a couple times now! 10 stars! It’s a must try
