Keto Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

This Bacon Cheeseburger Soup is Keto-Friendly!

If you had told me that I could have a bacon cheeseburger while on the Keto Diet, I would have tried it ages ago. Even if you’re not sticking to Keto, this soup is amazing. It literally tastes like a cheeseburger in liquid form. For the record, that sounds kind of odd, but trust me, it’s delicious!

One of my favorite parts of this recipe is that everything is made in one high-side skillet. Less dishes makes this mama happy. On top of less dishes, this soup is ready in about 35 minutes. On weeknights when we have a lot going on, this is a go-to meal to get healthy food on the table and my family off to their events.

Bowl of Soup with Side Salad

Ingredients: 

4 slices thick-cut bacon, chopped 1 lbs. 80% lean ground beef
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon smoked paprika
Sea salt & black pepper, to taste
½ large head cauliflower, chopped small
3 cups beef broth, preferably organic, divided
1/3 cup heavy cream, tempered
3 cups sharp cheddar cheese, finely shredded
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

Side Salad:

6 cups baby arugula
12 grape or cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1 oz. Pecorino-Romano cheese, shaved
1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
Sea salt and black pepper, taste

Instructions:

Heat a large high-sided skillet over medium heat. Add bacon and cook until crispy, approximately 6-7 minutes. Transfer cooked bacon to a plate lined with paper towels and blot off excess grease. Drain and discard bacon grease from skillet before returning to the cooktop.

Add ground beef to the same skillet and sprinkle the onion powder, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and smoked paprika on top. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the meat is browned, approximately 5 minutes.

Add the chopped cauliflower and beef broth to the skillet and stir to combine. Cover and reduce heat to medium low. Simmer until heated through and the cauliflower is fork tender, but not mushy, approximately 7-8 minutes.

While the soup is simmering, prepare the side salad by adding the baby arugula, grape tomatoes, and the Pecorino-Romano cheese to a large bowl. Add the olive oil and fresh lime juice. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and toss to combine. Set aside.

When the cauliflower is fork tender, remove the skillet from heat. To prevent curdling, temper the heavy cream by adding one or two tablespoons of the hot liquid from the skillet to it. Stir the tempered cream and sharp cheddar cheese into the skillet until the cheese is thoroughly melted. Taste and adjust seasonings, as desired.

To serve, ladle the soup into individual serving bowls. Crumble the cooked bacon and sprinkle on top of each bowl along with the fresh chopped parsley. Serve immediately with some of the arugula salad on the side. Enjoy!
