Slow Cooker Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

Tuesday, May 19, 2020
Here is an easy soup made with ground beef, bacon and turned into the best slow cooker bacon cheeseburger meal ever.

I love the rich characteristics of this soup that taste just like a loaded favorite American burger.

The soup is creamy and has carrots and I happen to love it with diced fresh tomato in it but those are optional.

Serve this up with some buttery garlic bread and you have the perfect meal for a chilly evening that is rib-sticking good!

We love all kinds of comfort soups and chili that are a whole meal in a bowl like this one.

The kids love this soup and ask for more I just love how simple it is to make.

It can also be made on the stovetop if you don't have a slow cooker.

Other Cooking Methods

Of course, if you do not own a slow cooker you can cook this on the stovetop no problem.

This soup will only take as long as the potatoes are cooked.

I prefer the slow cooker if  I am going to be gone for the day and just have to come home and make the last part of the recipe.

The soup thickens by the roux you will make at the end and by stirring in shredded cheeses.

Get creative and add whatever you like in your soup that would you put on your cheeseburger.

If you happen to have an instant pot, the pressure cooker mode followed to the manufacturer instructions will speed up the whole process of making this soup.
