I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. You can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).

Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

Yield: 6
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

This Bacon Cheeseburger Soup is low carb and keto-friendly and perfect for comfort food cravings!


For the Side Salad

  • 6 cups baby arugula (rocket)
  • 12 grape or cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1 oz (25g) Pecorino-Romano cheese, shaved
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • Sea salt and black pepper, taste


  1. Heat a large high-sided skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook until crispy, approximately 6-7 minutes.
  2. Transfer the cooked bacon to a plate lined with paper towels and blot off excess grease. Drain and discard bacon grease from the skillet before returning to the cooktop.
  3. Add the 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. When the cauliflower is fork-tender, remove the skillet from heat.
  7. 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.
  8. 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! blank
