Crockpot Bacon Cheeseburger Soup - FamilyFreshMeals

Is there anything better than a big juicy bacon cheeseburger? Your mouth just started watering a little bit…..didn’t it?

This soup delivers that same mouth watering taste, but in the form of an easy peasy crockpot recipe.   Luckily for my vegetarian hubby, this Crockpot Bacon Cheeseburger Soup can easily be made vegetarian using soy crumbles. 

Ingredients:  Crockpot Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

1 lb ground beef (or soy crumble for vegetarians)

1 cup onions, diced

2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes

5 strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled (or soy bacon for vegetarians)

1/2 cup celery, chopped

1 cup carrots, shredded

2 cups potatoes, cubed

8 oz cream cheese, cubed

4 cups chicken broth (or veggie broth for vegetarians)

1/4 cup flour

1 cup milk

3-4 garlic cloves, minced

1 tsp salt

1 tsp dried basil

1 tsp dried parsley

1/2 tsp pepper

Brown beef

1. Start by sauteing onions and browning your beef together, until meat is no longer pink.

2. Next combine all ingredients EXCEPT for the shredded cheddar cheese, milk and flour. 

It helps to hire an extra cute helper for this :)

3. Stir to combine ingredients. Cover and cook on LOW for 7 hours.

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. When 10 minutes are left, you are going to add a thickener and  your cheese. To make the thickener, combine milk and flour. Whisk until all clumps are gone.

5. Uncover crockpot and  stir in shredded cheese and milk/flour mixture. Cover and cook for the remaining 10 minutes, until cheese is melted.

I served our soup with chopped up dill pickles to add that cheeseburger feel :)

    Sounds so yummy. So going to be making this soon with a little various. Using ground turkey or ground chicken or maybe a combo of both instead of the beef or the crumble and greek yogurt instead of cream cheese, little less calories than the cream cheese but gives it the same taste.

  2. Jennifer Scotto-Robinson says

    In #2, do you mean add all the ingredients except the cheese, MILK, and FLOUR? Aren’t the milk and flour saved for the end?? I just want to make sure I do it right. Sounds SO yummy!! :))

    • Corey says

      It is just as good vegetarian! My vegetarian hubby is always begging me to make it :) hehe
      PS. I just checked out your BBQ Pulled Tofu Sandwich!!! WOWEE!!! Gotta that one!

  3. Ann says

    I have this soup in the crockpot now. Once I put all the ingredients in, I had to check out the flavor for seasonings. It tasted pretty good. I can’t wait for the finale!

  4. Holly says

    Oh my goodness, this was amazingly delicious! I made it exactly as the recipe says — didn’t change a thing. It was absolutely perfect. Seriously mouth-watering. Even my 21-month-old daughter, who is a picky eater, gobbled down a bowl in record time! We all loved it and had leftovers for the next night’s dinner. This became an instant favorite in my family! I’ll certainly be making it again.

  5. Jill says

    So excited to try this tonight! However I just realized I didn’t add the onions to the meat, but straight to the crockpot instead. Yikes! I do this all the time and never learn, lol. Crossing my fingers I didn’t botch dinner!

  6. Sarah says

    Is the bacon soggy after being in the crock pot for 7 hours? Wondering how it would be if it’s added at the end if you like it a little crispier? Can’t wait to try this!

    • Corey says

      Sarah, the bacon will be soften and become part of the soup. If you would like to add some crispy bacon to the top, I think that would make an excellent garnish! I hope you enjoy!

  7. Erin says

    Has anyone tried this recipe without the milk and flour? I’m thinking if you waited until the last 10 minutes to add the cream cheese, that would thicken it up. Just a thought. I’m going to try it. Sounds delish!

    • Julie says

      The cream cheese is not going to thicken the soup up much. I took some soup out for myself before I added the milk and flour. I don’t do well with milk but the rest of the family is fine with it. This is a very good soup either way however all 5 people in my family agreed that the soup tasted better without the milk and flour.

    • Corey says

      Yes, you need the veggies to soften up and the flavors to blend nicely. If you are strapped for time, you could quickly saute the veggies in some butter to soften them up before adding them into the crockpot and then reduce your cooking time to 5-6 hours.

      • Kelly says

        That was the only thing I found a bit lacking (for lack of a better word). The veggies didn’t soften up enough in the 8 hours (I did this because hubby was late coming home from work) it cooked. I would suggest parboiling or sauteeing the veggies (especially the potatoes) first. :)

  8. Melissa says

    Is there anything you can substitute for the potatoes and tomatoes? I’m allergic to night shade veggies. I normally just leave them out, or don’t make the dish at all… but this sounds way too yummy to just pass up! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  9. Kelly says

    I just made this for the first time last night. Oh my goodness! I don’t think I can remember the last time I made a soup that all 3 of my kids loved! All asked for seconds and when I was going to make it again.

    Thank you for sharing this!

  10. Steph says

    Oh my! First cold night in GA. Thought of this… Had to put it on high…because well I thought of it too late. Best soup ever! Going to make up several freezer packs of this!

  11. Hilary says

    This looks yummy and can’t wait to try it in the crockpot, but wondering if anyone had tried it on the stove. I’d love to try this for dinner, but didn’t get it into the crockpot this morning. Any idea about cooking times??

  12. Amy says

    I have this in the crock pot right now.. It smells absoutly amazing.. I did not have any carrots, and just had the italian diced tomatoes. I’m so excited for this to be done.. and I also have french bread going in the bread maker. I don’t think it could get any better on this Chilly, Snowy, Wi day. I’m so glad that I found this recipe.

  13. Melissa says

    What size crock-pot do you recommend for this soup? I am planning on making it for a work pot-luck and I want to double the recipe. Do you think it will fit in my 7 qt crock-pot?

  14. Laura says

    I am going to be making this for a potluck on Sunday. I was planning on cooking it on Saturday but should I just put it all together Saturday night and cook it Sunday morning? I’m kinda lost on what to do time wise. It needs to be ready by 1pm Sunday afternoon. Any ideas?

    thanks!

  15. says

    My husband and I made this last night and are enjoying leftovers today. It is a wonderful recipe. I am partial to crockpot meals and especially love soup.
    I shared this on pinterest and facebook.

    I will be trying some of those other soups recipes as well!

    • Corey says

      Yes, that should work out great. I would add them half way through the cooking time, since they won’t need as much time to cook.

  16. April B. says

    This looks SO delicious!!! I want to try this out tomorrow but I was wondering if I could use tomato sauce or paste in place of the diced tomatoes? My family likes the tomato flavor, but not the chunks.

    • Julianne says

      Just throw the tomatoes in a blender first and they will never know it’s there but the flavor will still be right! :)

  17. Suzanne says

    This did not work for us. It had no flavor except when I added the pickles. I made the vegetarian option (bc I keep kosher, so bacon is a no no), and it just tasted wrong. I am wondering if my prepping everything the night before and storing everything (veggie crumbles, onions, veggie bacon, and veggies) together in a Ziploc had anything to do with it. Maybe the flavors just melded together in that bag and then there was nothing left after cooking it. I will try it again and if I prep it before, store the ingredients separately.

  18. Hannah says

    How does this soup do leftover? I was thinking about making it a day before I needed to take it to a party. Is it not as good the next day?

  19. Holly B says

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this! I’ve done both the regular (non vegetarian version) and vegetarian version and they came out wonderful each time.
    My only additions is sometimes, a little splash of pickle juice and powdered mustard. Otherwise, it is perfect as it is.
    It’s become our hardy, go to dinner. Also, leftovers are awesome!

  20. Linda says

    In the crock pot now and the house smells delish!!! I had to use ketchup instead of tomatoes though. Hope it does not mess up the taste. Also the cream cheese is still lumpy. Guess I thought it would incorporate into the soup. We’ll see how it turns out.

    • Corey says

      Just give the soup a stir towards the end Linda and the cream cheese should incorporate in. I’ve never substituted ketchup for tomatoes, but I’m sure it will be just fine. Let us know how it tastes!

      • Linda says

        Verdict: AMAZING!!!! WOW! I served the girls and the phone rang so I was away five minutes. When I turned around youngest DD was at my elbow. Figures, since I was on the phone, right? But, no, she was asking for MORE! Oldest had also inhaled hers. Husband had a couple bowls too. He said this can’t be healthy. But I tried to healthify it with ground turkey and turkey bacon and low fat cheeses. Well, maybe I was a little generous with the cheese. :) A HIT in our family and sure to show up again on the menu! The girls were even making noises about serving fries on the side.

        • Corey says

          Haha! Love this Linda! Thank you so much for taking the time to come back and share :) Tell the girls that is a AWESOME idea to serve with fries on the side!
