Man, do I have a GREAT dish for you today. My family aren’t avid soup eaters but when I put together a nice solid, creamy, cheesy, hearty soup, they give it a try and usually end up loving it and this one, they absolutely LOVED it. Give it a try. You might be in the same boat and love it too!
Bacon Cheeseburger Soup
1 lb ground meat, browned
1 lb bacon, cook to your desired doneness and crumbled
4 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
1 ~ 32 oz. container of chicken broth
4 Tbs Butter
3/4 cups each of chopped celery, carrots, and onions
1/4 cup flour
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup sour cream
2 cups of shredded colby jack cheese
3/4 tsp. Kosher salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tsp Garlic Garlic
Let’s start by browning the ground meat. Once done, set aside.
Cook your bacon and set aside (not pictured) once cooled, crumble.
To a soup pot, add 1 Tbs of butter and the carrots, celery, garlic garlic, and onion.
Cook for 5 – 7 minutes (until tender)
Peel and dice your potatoes.
in a separate pot, boil those potatoes for 10 – 15 minutes. (fork tender)
Back to your main pot… Add the broth and ground meat.
Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer.
Once potatoes are done, drain and add to soup base.
In a small pot, add 3 Tbs of Butter and 1/4 cup of flour. Cook for 4 – 5 minutes over medium heat. Stir constantly. This cooks off the flour taste.
Then add to the soup base. (not pictured) Bring base to a boil and boil for 2 minutes then reduce heat. Stir constantly.
Add cheese, milk, and heavy cream.
Fold in your bacon, salt and pepper, and sour cream.
Once everything is incorporated, remove from heat and Bowl Up!
This is a simple delicious soup. Great flavor. Try it. I hope you like it. No, I know you will LOVE it!
