15-Minute Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

15-Minute Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

A quick and delicious 15 Minute Bacon Cheeseburger Soup with all the flavors of a traditional burger. Who wouldn’t love that?

Inspiration for my soup recipes comes from other dishes that aren’t soup at all. For instance, that’s where the idea for my past Pizza Soup and Chinese Beef and Broccoli Soup came from.

Today’s soup is also inspired by a non-soup dish. It’s a Bacon Cheeseburger Soup. It’s based on the idea of a basic Hamburger Soup but with the flavors you find on burgers.

There’s ground beef, bacon, onions, tomatoes and even ketchup, mustard and pickles. It’s amazing how much it tastes like a burger.


  • 1 Tbsp vegetable or grape seed oil
  • 1 and 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
