On a cold a snowy winter evening, I can’t say that I really want to run outside and fire up the grill. Even in the summertime, when monsoon season rolls through Durango, Colorado, I’m not willing to soak myself to the bone just to make cheeseburgers. So in comes the recipe below: all of the comforting goodness of a cheeseburger without any of the outdoor activities!
The best part about this soup is that it really does taste like a bacon cheeseburger. The combination of ground beef and smoky bacon in a cheesy broth will satisfy any burger craving. Using potatoes makes this soup reminiscent of chowder but gives it a nice body and emulates the starchy flavor of the burger bun.
