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.

Bacon cheeseburger soup in a white bowl with shredded cheese and bacon crumbles as garnish.I 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!

    I’ve made this many times now, and I absolutely love it. Friends request that I make it when they come over. It’s so comforting. It has a lot of flavor. I can make it with very basic ingredients that I tend to have on hand. It’s a real winner. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    I ♥️ this soup! So good with a warm crusty roll on a cold wintery day (or any day!) Thank you for the yummy recipe

    I made this soup with minor tweaks (veggies) instead I used dried ingredients with the exception of onions. MY FAMILY LOVED IT, including my husband who is a very picky eater. Thank you for sharing!

  4. 4 stars
    Really good, I added garlic with my veggies and garnished with fresh dill pickle which i felt it really needed…Thanks for the recipe!

    I decided to review this recipe only because I made the Cheeseburger Soup recipe from this site
    and in my review gave it 4 stars because it was “missing something” and that was BACON! So realizing this is pretty much the same recipe with the addition of bacon I felt at liberty to give this recipe 5 stars and a review. The only change I would make is to use some of the bacon grease (that is if you are frying your own) to cook your veggies in, instead of the butter, it will bump the flavor up even more. A really tasty, hearty, soup everyone enjoyed. I will make it again. Thank you.

  6. This is a phenomenal recipe! I probably made this 5 to 10 times everybody loves it and the bacon just makes it a million times better!
