Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

This concept for a deconstructed cheeseburger in soup form is tasty and healthy. We enjoyed it very much.

  • 1 to 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 12 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup shredded greens*
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese
  • 1 15 oz can petite diced tomatoes

  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp dried dill weed
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Croutons for garnish (I made mine using leftover hamburger buns)

Personally I can say I have had some strained friendships and perhaps some relationships that will never be the same because of this presidential election here in the USA. Politics is personal. There are two things you don’t talk about, religion and politics (and sports in some places) in polite company anyway. After November the nation will take time to heal after this brutal cycle. Let’s hope we can all have a cold one after all this is said and done. Reconciliation will be hard but it’s worth doing.
