There’s nothing like a warm pot of soup when you need some serious comfort food. This Bacon Cheeseburger Soup is one of my family’s favorites and definitely some of the best creamy comfort food out there.
I love soups when the weather cools down. I know. I KNOW. It doesn’t actually get very cold where I love. Southern Utah has some decent winters but I’m used to Southern California where winter means not having to pack your shorts away so I’m still freezing here at the moment.
Enter this fabulous Bacon Cheeseburger Soup.
I will admit, this is not a low-fat soup. On the plus side, if you are doing Keto you could easily adapt this and make it low-carb.
Even my picky 11-year-old loved this so it will definitely be making a regular appearance on our dinner table until the weather warms up to tolerable levels (and by tolerable, I mean I can stop wearing shoes outside).

Bacon Cheeseburger Soup Preparation

Add the chicken broth, diced potatoes and stir in the cooked hamburger.
Bring the soup to a boil and simmer, covered on low for 12-15 minutes.
