Keto Cheeseburger Soup
Keto cheeseburger soup turned out to be one of my favorite low carb soup recipes. Recently, I made a cheeseburger casserole but this one was faster to make and I dare say I enjoyed it more. The soup is thickened with a mix of cream cheese and heavy cream for a warm hamburger soup with a cheesy base. Then, garnished with pickles and crunchy bacon.

What Is Cheeseburger Soup

It is exactly what it sounds like, cheeseburger made into a soup. Traditionally, the soup has potatoes in it and you can simply replace the potatoes with cauliflower. In this recipe, I didn’t add cauliflower but in the notes I will show you how to add them.

How Can I Thicken Keto Cheeseburger Soup?

So, normally the soup is thickened from the starch leftover by the potatoes. We don’t have that luxury here but we do have cream cheese. It works perfectly and brings a wonderful flavor to the overall soup.

How To Make Keto Cheeseburger Soup

To start, dice your onion and cut bacon up. In a large pot fry bacon then remove. Leave a little of the bacon grease in the pan. Then, add the onion and ground beef.

Cook ground beef until brown. Now, add in the cream cheese, ketchup, mustard and combine then well. You’ll now have a creamy mix of hamburger in the pan.

Then, on top of that pour in beef broth. For a thicker soup, use half the beef broth. At this point bring to a boil then simmer. If using cauliflower add it in now. Cook until tender.

Lastly, add in heavy cream and turn the heat off. When serving garnish with shredded cheese, leftover bacon and pickles.

Can I Freeze Homemade Soup

Yes you can! Simply add the soup to a sealed container and freeze for a few months. This recipe keeps in the refrigerator for about a week as well. It works well for meal prep as well to have for a simple lunch during the week.

Helpful Recipe Tips

  • How to add cauliflower, I didn’t include cauliflower because I didn’t think it was needed. Yet, I understand why someone would. It’s easy, at the stage after the you add the broth and bring it to a simmer add in the cauliflower florets. Cook until tender then continue the rest of the steps in the recipe.
  • What is the best ground beef, the leaner the ground beef the less fat leftover. I think in this recipe 85/15 is fine but going lower than that you’re making the soup more greasy. From a cheeseburger stand this can be delicious but from a soup point it can be a bit overkill.
  • Make it your own, if there is anything you love on your burgers from mushrooms to tomatoes toss it in! Now, lettuce is a thing but I would say garnish with it after the soup is done if that’s what you like.
