Crockpot Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

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

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

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

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.

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

    Does it have to be beef broth? Or can it be chicken broth as shown in the picture?

  2. can you list nutritional values? Esp how much is a serving and calories?

  3. Luceille Coo says:

    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.

  4. Jannelle Knapp says:

    This soup is so good!! I’m so glad you posted the recipe! Thanks :)

  5. 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!! :))

  6. This looks awesome! I love crockpot soups.

  7. I think that I definitely need to try making the vegetarian version of this. It sounds SO tasty! :)

    • 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!

  8. I think the name should be changed from ” Bacon Cheeseburger Soup ” to. ” Better Than Sex Soup”. Enough said

  9. I made this soup last night and my 4 year old told me that I was the best “cooker” in the whole world. Thanks!

  10. I have this in the crockpot right now! Hope it tastes as good as it looks and sounds!

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. Elp! I accidentally added the milk rt away. Will this be a problem or should I strain the liquid out?

  14. Absolutely fabulous!

  15. 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!

  16. 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!

    • 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!

  17. 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!

    • 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.

  18. I know that you cook the meat before but then do you put it in the crockpot for 7 hours or put it in after?

    • 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.

      • 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. :)

  19. Making this now with some left over pot roast from last night. using the juices the roast was cooked in.

  20. 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!

  21. I’ve made this a couple times and it’s delicious. Its my new favorite soup!! Thanks for sharing!!!

  22. Gina Steinmetz says:

    Does the leftovers freeze well with dairy in it?

  23. 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!

  24. 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!

  25. 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??

  26. Just started this in the crockpot for dinner tonight. Sounds and looks yummy! Thanks for sharing.

  27. 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.

  28. 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?

  29. 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!

  30. Thank you for such a great idea! Looking forward to making more of your delicious meals!

  31. How long should I cook it for stovetop?
