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 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!
