Having keto cheeseburger soup during colder months is a great choice when living a healthy lifestyle. You get all the great flavors of a classic cheeseburger with bacon, onion, garlic with garnishing of cheese and pickles. A low carb soup recipe can still be comforting, simple to make and delicious.
In a large pot on medium/high heat cook up chopped bacon. Remove any excess fat leaving about 1 TB. Add in onion and ground beef. Cook until brown.
Once brown lower heat to medium add in cream cheese stirring often to prevent burning or sticking. If too hot lower heat. Once cream cheese is melted add in 1/4 cup shredded cheeddar. Stir in until melted.
Next add in ketchup, mustard and garlic powder. Once combined pour beef broth in. Bring to simmer. If using cauliflower add at his point. See notes, if not adding cauliflower go to next step.
Add in heavy cream. Now taste for salt. If you need more salt add in the 1 tsp above or make adjustments needed. Depending on ingredients used this can vary widely how much salt you'll need to add.
Remove from heat then serve with garnishing of extra cheese, bacon and pickles.
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.
