|10 mins||30 mins||40 mins||4 servings|
- 1 pound ground beef (450g)
- 6 slices bacon, chopped
- 1 small onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 4 cups beef broth (960 ml)
- 1 cup heavy cream (240 ml)
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (113g)
- 1/4 cup chopped dill pickles (35g)
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1 teaspoon mustard
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Optional toppings: additional shredded cheddar cheese, chopped bacon, sliced green onions
- In a large pot or Dutch oven, cook the chopped bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove the bacon from the pot and set aside, leaving the bacon grease in the pot.
- Add the ground beef to the pot with the bacon grease and cook until browned, breaking it up into small pieces with a wooden spoon. Remove any excess grease if desired.
- Add the diced onion and minced garlic to the pot and cook for 2-3 minutes, until the onion is translucent and fragrant.
- Stir in the tomato paste and mustard, ensuring that the beef and onion mixture is evenly coated.
- Pour in the beef broth and bring the soup to a simmer. Let it cook for 10 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
- Reduce the heat to low and stir in the heavy cream, shredded cheddar cheese, and chopped dill pickles. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the cheese is melted and the soup is heated through.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remember to go easy on the salt if your bacon and cheese are already salty.
- Serve the Keto Bacon Cheeseburger Soup hot, garnished with additional shredded cheddar cheese, chopped bacon, and sliced green onions if desired.
