This Keto Bacon Cheeseburger Soup has all the flavors of a cheeseburger, but in soup form. It’s even as though you can taste each individual condiment. So warm and comforting.
Low carb soup recipes are my jam! In fact, I love them so much that several years ago, I wrote an entire Slow Cooker Soups and Stews Ebook. This Keto Bacon Cheeseburger Soup is one of the recipes from that book. I’ve made it so many times on my Instagram, that I felt it was only fair that after all these years, I finally share it here as well.
Not only is this keto soup rich and filling, but it manages to capture all the flavors of a juicy, delicious cheeseburger. It’s as if you can even taste each individual condiments too. This Keto Bacon Cheeseburger Soup is one of my all-time favorite comfort food recipes. I am a year round soup eater. Hot or cold weather, soup always sound delicious to me. Who’s with me?
A lot of low carb and keto soup recipes utilize xanthan gum to thicken the broth, but I prefer not to. This gluten free soup recipe is thickened with the use of cheese and heavy cream. I have always been a fan of cream based low carb soups. Actually, Who am i kidding? I am just a big fan of soup in general.
One of the most common questions I get on a lot of my slow cooker soup recipes is how to covert them to stovetop, so for this Keto Bacon Cheeseburger Soup recipe, I gave instructions for both. However, I feel like I need to tell you that you should probably make a double batch! It is that good. Every time we make this, there are never any leftovers, no matter how much I make. In fact, I have to make triple batch in order to have some for our weekly meal planning and low carb food prep. It is one of those soup recipes that just gets better and better as the days go by. It also reheats really well!
