Pin It Now!Yeah, you read that right...bacon, cheeseburger SOUP. Now, some of you out there may have heard of this, you may have it in your recipe rotation, but for me...this is the first I've heard of a soup tasting like a cheeseburger. Surfing through the net, I've found a few different versions of this dish. I gave in and just decided to pick one. There's another version that sounded really good too..may just have to make that one another day.... If you've got a killer one...submit it under Share Your Recipes! Going to serve with a side of Hamburger Toasts. :)
Okay, so it's not the prettiest soup I've ever eaten, but it was very tasty!
Good bang for the buck!
Bacon Cheeseburger Soup
10 slices of bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
2 pounds ground beef
1 onion, diced
2 tsp. garlic, minced
4 cups of chicken broth
1 (14.5 oz) can of petite diced tomatoes, undrained
1 (10.75 oz) can cheddar cheese soup (or 2 cups cubed cheddar cheese or 2 cups processed cheese such as Velveta)
2 Tbsp, Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup dill pickle relish
1 (2.8 oz) can of French fried onions
In a large soup pot or dutch oven, cook bacon until crisp. Remove from the pot and drain on paper towels.
Add ground beef, onion , and garlic to pot with bacon grease. Cook until beef is no longer pink and onion is tender. Drain off grease.
Add chicken broth, tomatoes, cheese soup, and Worcestershire sauce to the meat mixture. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until heated through. Mix in pickle relish.
Serve in bowls topped with the cooked bacon followed by the French fried onions. Serves 6 to 8.
Hamburger Bun Toasts (recipe from RealMomKitchen.com)
4 Tbsp melted butter
1 Tbsp. prepared mustard
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tsp garlic salt
4 hamburger buns, split
1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese (or cheese of your choice)
dried parsley, optional
In a bowl, combine melted butter, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic salt until well blended. Allow to cool. You want the butter mixture to stiffen up again to create a spread.
Spread butter mixture over cut side of buns and place on a baking sheet.
Top buns with shredded Swiss cheese followed by a sprinkle of dried parsley if desired.
Broil in the oven on the middle rack (this prevents burning). Broil until cheese is melted and buns are lightly toasted (just a couple of minutes). Makes 8 servings.
