Bacon Cheeseburger Soup


Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

yield: 6 SERVINGS

prep time: 5 MINUTES

cook time: 25 MINUTES

INGREDIENTS:

  • 6 slices (1/2 lb) bacon, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1lb ground beef
  • 1 can (14.5oz) diced tomatoes
  • 2 tsp yellow mustard
  • 4 dill pickle spears, diced (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 2 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup shredded colby-jack cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns, cut into bite sized pieces

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large soup pot over medium high heat, saute bacon pieces until browned (I like it crispy, it takes about 4-5 minutes). Remove bacon and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain. Drain grease out of pot.
  3. To the pot, add the ground beef and cook until browned. Drain and return beef and bacon to pot. (make sure all the grease is out of the pot).
  4. Add tomatoes (with juice from can), mustard, pickles, beef broth, milk, red pepper, salt and pepper. Simmer over medium-low heat for about ten minutes, stirring occasionally. While this is simmering, place hamburger bun pieces on a baking sheet and bake for about 8-10 minutes.
  5. To the soup, add heavy cream and cheese. Heat for about 2-3 minutes, until cheese is melted.
  6. Serve in soup bowls with hamburger bun croutons!
