LCHF Bacon cheeseburger soup

Pernille Bjerring


Isn’t time just flying in December – I honestly don’t understand where this month has gone? And Christmas is right around the corner:-)

To make things a little easier, I decided to try out an existing recipe that has been all the hype in LCHF communities in the US and Scandinavia: The Bacon Cheeseburger Soup!

I admit that I have been struggling a bit with the concept. And I received quite a lot of resistance from my family when I introduced the idea: Are you going to put a cheeseburger in the blender……? But I stuck to my plan, I made the soup and it was heavenly. EVERYBODY, even the worst sceptic, agreed that it was delicious and at the same time oh so filling.

There are quite a number of different recipes out there. I used a little cabbage in my soup, to ensure some vegetables with the meal. It left no taste but a little texture and balanced off some of the fatty feeling of the soup.

LCHF Bacon cheeseburger soup

4-5 servings

1 pound ground beef

1 pack bacon

2 T butter

1 onion

3 cloves garlic

1/2 small cabbage head (I used green cabbage)

1 t cumin

3 T chili flakes

Almost 1 quart beef broth

7 oz cream cheese

2 handfuls shredded cheddar (I used sharp)

7 oz heavy whipping cream

3/4 of a small can of tomato paste

Salt & pepper

Fry the bacon on a pan and set aside. Brown the meat in the bacon fat. Chop the onion and the garlic. Melt the butter in a pot and add the onion, garlic and the spices. Add the meat and the bacon fat from the pan. Leave to simmer for a little while and then add the very finely shredded cabbage (I used my foodprocessor to get it very fine). After a couple of minutes, add the tomato paste, the beef broth and the cream cheese and cheddar. Leave to boil for a while, making sure that the cheeses have melted. Simmer for about 30 minutes. Add the cream just before serving and taste with salt & pepper. Serve with bacon pieces and a little extra cheddar – and maybe also a biscuit. Enjoy!

    I DID make it for supper toghnit. I used ground turkey instead of the ground beef, and didn’t put in any type of onion. Another modification to the recipe, I didn’t have enough dill relish, so I chopped up a dill pickle. I think I should have only used half the pickle because the dish was very pickle-y. But everyone ate it up 😉 Because this recipe was easy to put together [it went together VERY quickly since the ground turkey was already cooked] I’ll definitely be trying this again, but with less pickle.
