Boy oh boy am I super excited about this Easy Bacon Cheeseburger Soup -Keto Friendly Recipe!  It tastes AMAZING and it’s approved on my diet.  I’m gonna stop calling the Ketogenic diet a diet because I can eat this way the rest of my life!  Seriously!  This is the first time I’ve ever been able to say that with full confidence.

Here are some of my favorite Ketogenic diet cookbooks is you are looking into this way of eating.  I am down 11 pounds in only 3 weeks and loving every bit of it!

There’s a printable version of this recipe at the very bottom of this post.

Easy Bacon Cheeseburger Soup Recipe Ingredients

  • 5 slices Bacon
  • 12 oz. Ground Beef (80/20)
  • 2 tbsp. Butter
  • 3 cups Beef Broth or Beef Bone Broth
  • 1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Onion Powder
  • 2 tsp. Yellow Mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. Ground Red Pepper
  • 1 tsp. Cumin
  • 1 tsp. Chili Powder
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. Tomato Paste
  • 3 medium Dill Pickle, diced
  • 1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 3 oz. Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Cream

Easy Bacon Cheeseburger Soup Recipe Instructions:

Start by cooking your bacon.  Once the bacon is done, remove it from the frying pan and start to cook the hamburger meat in the bacon grease left in the pan.  (You can skip this step and add real bacon bits if you want a faster process)

In a separate pan, add the butter and all the spices.  You will want to allow these spices to cook together for about 45 seconds. It will smell amazing!

Now, add the broth, tomato paste, cheese, mustard and cream cheese to the spices mixture.  I let this cook on the stove top for about 5 minutes or so.  Just enough for the cream cheese to be melted completely in the sauce.

Lastly, you will add your pickles and heavy cream to the sauce.  It will be a nice and brown creamy texture.

Pour the sauce over the hamburger meat with bacon you cooked early and allow it to simmer for about 5 or 10 minutes.

Serve warm!

    Me and my boyfriend have just stared the keto journey. We are 2 weeks in. I annoy him with my love of soups..I make them all the time. When I told him we were having bacon cheeseburger soup tonight he rolled his eyes. When he tasted it he kept going on and on about how good it was. Kept saying “this is no way healthy and fits into our diet..it’s too good!”..he was shocked when I showed him it was Keto. Literally one of the best soups I’ve ever made ❤❤❤

  2. Absolutely love this soup. I cooked up the bacon and then sauteed some onions and mushrooms in the bacon grease. Added all of this to the soup base with the hamburger. I wondered why there was no salt in the recipe, but decided to trust the recipe. It does not need any added salt. Thank you for this!

    Really yummy recipe, printed out after our first bowl, this WILL be made again and again.

    I used petite diced/drained tomato 1 can instead tomato paste.. think one could also exchange velveeta if chedder is a problem.

    Delicious! I love it as written, but my kids prefer it with about half of the cayenne pepper called for in the recipe.

    This is pinned to my favorites folder on my keto board! Definetly a keeper!! I really miss cheeseburgers and this really hits the spot thank you thank you thank you!!
    Just a side note my family isn’t on a keto woe so for them I use ground turkey I use half the cheddar cheese but use extra sharp and add a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes. I know this ups the carb count so if I haven’t hit my macros for the day I go ahead and eat them if I have and don’t want to go over it want some wiggle room for a keto dessert I dip my bowl then add them in for my family. This soup is a crowd pleaser! 😊

    This soup is delicious! I wasn’t sure how I’d like the dill pickle in the soup, al though I love dill pickles. But it was such a pleasant addition. I also added pickled jalapenos because I love jalapenos on a burger. I will repeat this soup often. Thank you Jennifer for your excellent research and recipes and talks with Dr. Boz!

  7. My husband are on the Keto diet. Just finished this soup. It is sooo good. The pickles give it the perfect taste. I will be making this again. It goes into my “go to” list.

  8. Is the pickle essential for any reason? My daughter might eat this if I left it out. It’s a lot of work, having to make her a separate meal.

  9. 5 stars
    Made this dish and adjusted my ingredients for more o a chili affect. It tastes oh! so good!!!!! This will definitely be a go-to dish.

  10. This soup is the bomb (late 90s ref). I loved every minute of it. I actually added onion, celery, and green pepper. I forgot the butter but I’m not sure you need it with the added fat from bacon and ground beef.

  11. Is this suppose to have 3 or 1 dill pickle? This post lists both ways. Also, when I put this recipe in MyFitnessPal it shows to have 8.9 net carbs.

    The flavours in this are Deeeeee-licious!!! And this is my first official keto meal!!! It’s getting chili outside and I was looking for a good soup, I highly recommend this one!! Thanks for the recipe, I’ll be making this one again!!

    OM Goodness! This is A-MA-ZING! This will be a staple meal in my home this winter! Probably any season, for that matter! I don’t think I will ever tire of this awesome soup! Thank you so much for sharing!

    Oh. My. Gosh. This was DELICIOUS! My only complaint is that it makes so little (5 cups). As delicious as this is, less than a cup just isn’t going to do it. ha!

    Recalculating in MFP for 5 servings brings it to 6 net carbs/cup. Glad I had some extra carbs this evening, because I certainly used them. This is going to the top of the “to make again ASAP” list! Thank you!

    Made this tonight! The only change was using reduced sugar ketchup instead of tomato paste just because tomato paste was the only ingredient I didn’t have on hand. I will definitely be making this one again! Super yummy and filling! I may add onions and/or mushrooms next time!

  16. When served individually, you must add shredded lettuce, sounds weird but it makes a HUGE difference, like Game changer difference.

    This is what’s for dinner tonight while I’m home packing! I threw everything in the crock pot except the cream cheese, the cheddar cheese and the dill pickles. Those will be added in towards the end. Oh yeah, I also had some Italian sausage in the freezer, so I added it along with the ground beef. It was real hearty and delish!

  18. I just made this with chopped cauli and cooked onion. Oh wow. This was a fabulous soup. Hubby loved it to. It’s really hearty. I would omit the salt and possibly use low sodium broths.

  19. This recipe is delicious! I would maybe reduce the salt a little, since all the other spices add so much nice flavor. I don’t, however, think this is 6 servings. I would say 4 at best.

  20. I made this a couple of months ago and loved it. It seems like 2 tsp would be on the high side if the yellow mustard is supposed to be powder, so I used prepared mustard, but thought I’d check to be sure… Thanks!

    This soup is SUPER yummy. I love a keto recipe that doesn’t involve chopping veggies or dealing with cauliflower. This is a welcomed change in my kitchen. Thanks for sharing!!! TIP: At first, I cooked it with 10oz of ground beef like the recipes states, which means I had a hunk of leftover meat from the 1 lb. package. After the soup was complete, I felt like it needed that full pound of ground beef so next time I will use it all. I actually wouldn’t have minded MORE meat than that! Just a thought for those with big families to feed.

    1. 5 stars
      Wow I never thought to change the recipe based on taste of how much I need. Thanks for your super useful story. Sounds like you really love it meaty!

  22. 5 stars
    Delicious! But I will omit the Kosher salt next time. Between the cheeses and bacon, it doesn’t need the salt.

  23. This soup is delicious! I made a double batch and would like to know the serving size. One cup?
    Thank you,
    Tammi

  24. I just made a half recipe of this and really wish I had doubled the recipe instead. It is delicious, and perfect for my Keto diet. Thank you for this! I will be making it again soon.
