Keto Bacon Cheeseburger Soup:

We love soup at my house. But I wanted to make a soup that was low carb and keto friendly. When I was looking at the Cheeseburger Soup recipe I wanted to see how my family reacted by taking out the potatoes.

The entire family gobbled up this soup when I made it. Instead of the potatoes I used, riced cauliflower. No one missed the potatoes and the cauliflower is really yummy.

The cauliflower takes on all the amazing flavors from the bacon and cheese and makes an incredible soup. No one will ask where the potatoes are.

Is it really Keto friendly?

The traditional cheeseburger soup is loaded with potatoes and Velveeta cheese. The potatoes and Velveeta cheese are loaded with carbs.

By switching out the potatoes with riced cauliflower and the cheese with shredded cheese you are making it Keto friendly.

Plus, we love how fast we can pull this soup together. It comes together in just about 20 minutes! Talk about a fast dinner idea.

Perfect weeknight meal:

This cheeseburger soup is perfect for busy weeknights when you need a hearty dinner but have little to no time to get dinner ready. I really try to meal plan each week, which helps me to stay on track and saves me money.

We usually try to have the majority of the ingredients on hand to make this recipe. I know that I can cook this soup quickly and I can get my kids to sports practice knowing that everyone had dinner.

Slow Cooker Low Carb Cheeseburger Soup:

You can certainly try this recipe in your crock pot instead of the stove top. We love to do this when we will be away all day or need to come home to dinner waiting. Low Carb Cheeseburger soup slow cooker recipe is really amazing and even the kids go crazy over it.

If I am using the slow cooker, my favorite is the Aura Cooker. The nice thing about this is you can brown the meat in the same slow cooker. It is nice to just have the one pan to clean if you are not using leftovers. It has become of my favorite kitchen appliances.

If you are in the market for a new crockpot, this one is my favorite. I use this all the time and it’s great. This is awesome for when you need to take the crockpot somewhere.  I often use the slow cooker to take dishes to potluck events and this feature is amazing!

Recipe Tips for making Cheeseburger Soup:

  • I use a small food chopper or processor to quickly and easily chop onions and green peppers. If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver.
  • I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need. It’s so nice to be able to just take diced onion or bell peppers out of the freezer for recipes.
  • To keep this a keto friendly soup, be sure to use block cheese instead of the already shredded cheese. Plus using the block cheese allows it to melt evenly.
  • You can also add in cream cheese. This gives it a really nice creamy texture.
  • If you don’t have chicken broth, you can use beef broth instead. This soup would be good to add in some worcestershire sauce.
  • You can use ground turkey or ground chicken instead ground beef to lower the calories in this recipe.
  • I like to add some larger cauliflower chunks in the soup. You can still mix in the rice cauliflower as well.
  • You can use various types of cheese.

How to make Keto Cheeseburger Soup:

  • In a stock pot or a dutch oven, add ground beef and brown until no longer pink. We always keep cooked ground beef in the freezer. We love using it in soups and it saves so much time.
  • Add in the diced bacon, minced garlic, diced onion, seasonings, riced cauliflower, and butter. Try adding in some green bell peppers for additional flavor.
  • Continue cooking on medium head until the onions and cauliflower are soft. I like to let these ingredients simmer for a bit. It really intensifies their flavors.
  • Stir in the chicken broth and the heaving whipping cream.
  • Bring the soup mixture to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Stir in the cheddar cheese. I like to add in a bit at time to prevent it from clumping. Then I stir occasionally until it is melted.
  • Whisk in the Xanthan gum to thicken. Cover for 5 minutes on low while the soup thickens. If you do not have any Xanthan gum, you can leave the lid off and simmer on low as the soup thickens. You can also add in a little more cream cheese.
  • Serve with more cheese, bacon, sour cream and any other toppings you would like.

This is such a great soup in less than 30 minutes!

Topping Ideas:

  • Top with Extra Bacon
  • Top with different types of cheese. Pepper Jack Cheese would be good.
  • Chives
  • Sour Cream

How to store Low Carb Cheeseburger Soup?

This Cheeseburger Soup is great leftover. Store your leftovers in the refrigerator in airtight container for up to 3-4 days. This would be great to take for lunch the next. I know my husband loves it when we have some leftover.

You may need to add in a little water or broth when reheating as it tends to thicken in the refrigerator.

We have found that this soup doesn’t freeze well because of the dairy products in the soup.

What to serve with Keto Cheeseburger Soup?

To keep with your Keto or Low Carb diet, I would serve a nice green salad. It will really balance out this soup. I also have served a green vegetable like broccoli.

Recipe Notes

Make sure to use a block of cheddar cheese and then shred it. It will melt more evenly.
You can also add in 4 oz of cream cheese to make an even CHEESIER soup! 
*Refrigerate the leftovers in an air tight container for up to 5-7 days.  The soup will thicken when it’s refrigerated.  Add a small amount of water or broth when reheating to thin the soup.

  1. Hi!! If I were to do this in crockpot how long do I put it in for and do I wait to put cauliflower rice in so it’s not too over cooked??

  2. This is a great recipe! I think instead of the chicken broth, I’ll use the low sodium beef broth to compliment the beef in the recipe. Thanks for sharing!!

  3. I’m confused. Recipe states to cook bacon. Add in diced bacon but no mention of beef. Do you cook bacon + set aside for topping? Or cook bacon + add beef and cook more bacon for topping?

  4. 5 stars
    Tried for first time and it’s delicious. Froze some and when I reheated it was just as good. Will make again!!

    I’m not a huge soup fan, but I will make it occasionally to please the rest of the family. This was dinner last night. I loved it! My family loved it! My three year old ate it! I would suggest frying the bacon separately so it isn’t chewy, but that didn’t really bother me all that much and doing so would add an extra step to this super-easy, on the table in no time flat, tasty recipe. Thank you for sharing! It’s in my master book now and i’ve shared it with all my keto friends.

  6. 5 stars
    This is delicious. I cook the ground beef and onions together, use a whole bag of frozen riced cauliflower, cook the bacon separately and wait until the end to stir it in, and haven’t needed to add in the xanthan gum to make it thick enough. Other than that, I followed the recipe. Have made this several times and look forward to it each time.

    Oh…my…goodness. Best soup I’ve had in a long time. So filling, creamy and delicious and crazy easy to make. I did not have heavy cream, but half and half, and it turned out just as I expected. Perfect! Thanks for sharing this recipe. I was advised that I HAD to save this recipe!
