It was so strange this morning to wake up to such a cold and rainy day. We were spoiled last week here in Utah with beautiful blue sky and sunshine all week. In fact, our family spent Saturday downtown Salt Lake and we were all in shorts and short sleeves. That seemed so crazy to be so warm in November. I guess cold weather was bound to come soon enough. So this morning when I was deciding what to post about it made sense to post a soup. There is nothing like a warm bowl of soup and bread to warm the soul on a cold day.

I found a version of this Bacon Burger Soup online and wanted to switch it up and make it my own. The site said this soup tastes just like a cheeseburger. I would have to disagree. I guess that depends how much you like cheeseburgers ;) I'm not a huge fan, so this soup to me was just a delicious, creamy potato soup with lots of flavor. The ground beef gives this soup a nice rich layer and the crumbled bacon on top really makes this soup something special. Combine that with all of the vegetables in this soup, melted cheese on top and the whole combination is perfect for this time of year! Hope this soup warms your heart and soul this time of year like it did mine ;)

Creamy Bacon Burger Cheese Soup

2 onions, diced small
12 oz. bacon, crumbled for garnish

In a large soup pot, saute the bacon until crispy and golden brown. Remove the bacon from the pot and set aside. Remove the excess grease, but keep about a tablespoon of the grease in the pot to saute the onions. Add the onions to the pot and saute until tender. Then add the following:

1 lb. ground beef or turkey

Saute the ground beef until golden brown with the onions. Remove the hamburger and onions from the pot and set aside. To the soup pot add the following:

1 Tbls. olive oil
1 1/2 cups celery, chopped
1 cup carrots, diced
3 cups diced red potatoes (or peeled russet potatoes)
5 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup flour

Saute for 5-7 minutes until slightly tender and the flour is nicely cooked.  Then add:

4 cups chicken broth
4 cans evaporated milk
1 1/2 tsp. worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. black pepper
Dash cayenne powder
1 tsp. salt, or more to taste

Let the soup come to a boil and simmer until the potatoes and carrots are tender, about 7-10 minutes. Once the potatoes are tender, add the ground beef and onions back to the soup pot. Let simmer on low until ready to serve and soup is thick enough to your liking. To garnish the soup, serve with the crumbled bacon, green onions and shredded cheese.

What a great recipe. I was able to use some of my food storage to make the soup. My family loved it. Thank goodness for dehydrated food. Check out where I get all my food storage from
