Bacon Cheese Burger Soup #SundaySupper

This week was meant to be my week to get caught up a bit on life. I am working two part time jobs at the moment, well I say part time, one of them is my freelance work and that can vary with how much work comes so sometimes it feels more like I am working a full time job while juggling a part time one. But this week I was off from my part time job and I really thought things would be looking up with more time to get caught up with life. But sadly that just wasn’t how it went, my freelance work piled up on me and yet again the rest of the house and life seemed to get pushed to the side and forgotten. And to top it off, this week has been a major stressful work week for my husband.

What do you do at the end of a very stressful week?

When we were living in Texas we had this pub down the street that had the best burgers and our favourite beers. It was our bad week retreat. But these days having a toddler and trying to save money and eat out less means that having guilty treats like that for bad weeks doesn’t work so well. So instead we opted for hubby picking up some beers and I gave my Bacon Cheese Burger Soup idea a try. It was amazing!

Coming from such a healthy weekend last week this might seem like a calorie loaded meal but hey everything in moderation, right? This soup has all the goodness of a burger in a warming soup form. And after the rough work week it turned out to be a perfect substitute for our pub burger and beer night.

This week Sunday Supper is all about soup. While I do love soup all year round I go a bit soup mad during winter because there is just something about soup that warms you from the inside out on the cold winter days. My thing with soup is it is so easy to throw together a soup that there really is no excuse for tinned soup. So if you have found yourself stuck in a boring soup rut you need to check out the amazing recipes the Sunday Supper crew have put together, we have more then 40 ideas to hopefully last you the rest of the winter.

Bacon Cheese Burger Soup

500g (1 lb) minced beef
1 Tbsp worcester sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
8 rashers of bacon
1 onion, chopped
31g (1/4 c.) flour
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
120mL (1/2 c.) cream
960mL (4 c.) chicken stock
125g (3/4 c.) carrots, diced
1-2 jalapenos, chopped
113 (1 c.) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese


Cook the minced beef, worcester sauce salt and pepper over medium high heat for about 8-10 minutes, drain and set aside.

In a saucepan cook the bacon for about 5-7 minutes. Take out of the pan, chop into pieces and set aside.


Don’t clean the pan, cook the onion in bacon grease until transparent but not brown, add the carrots and jalapenos. If the bacon you used was lean and didn’t produce enough oil add a splash of olive oil. Cook for 10 minutes, until the carrots have softened. Add flour, paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook on low heat for about 2 minutes.

Add cream and chicken stock and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened.

Cool soup slightly and then blend in a blender until smooth.

Add the soup back to the pan and heat through. Add cheese, bacon and beef; stir until cheese has melted. Serve with some home made croutons and a sprinkle of cheese.
