How to Make Keto Cheeseburger Soup 


All you need is one skillet. I like this T-fal skillet...

And as you know by now, I love 1 skillet meals. 

Let's get this soup going...

Start out by heating your skillet.

Then you'll want to fry the bacon until it is crispy. Enjoy the smell of the bacon.

Then fry the ground beef and the herbs and spices. More amazing smells.

Once the beef is browned and cooked through, add the cauliflower, bone broth, and simmer until cooked through but still tender.

Add the cream and the cheese and serve with bacon crumbles on top while still hot.

Bacon & Cheeseburger Soup

Keto Bacon and Cheeseburger Soup with Cauliflower

Keto-friendly one-skillet bacon and cheeseburger soup...

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • 4 slices of thick-cut bacon, cut into half-inch pieces
  • 1 pound of lean ground beef
  • ½ teaspoon of onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon of garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons of Italian herb seasoning
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • ½ a head of cauliflower cut into medium pieces
  • 3 cups of organic beef bone broth
  • ⅓ cup of heavy cream
  • 3 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley


  1. Heat a large high-sided skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add the bacon and fry for 6 to 7 minutes until crispy. Transfer the crispy bacon pieces to a side plate lined with a paper towel. Cover the bacon with another paper towel and blot off excess grease.
  3. Drain most of the bacon grease from the skillet and save it for later in a container like this one.
  4. Return the skillet to the cooktop and add the ground beef.
  5. Sprinkle the onion and garlic powder, the smoked paprika, and the Italian seasoning onto the beef.
  6. Season with sea salt and black pepper to taste, and stir to combine.
  7. Fry the beef for about 5 to 7 minutes until brown while stirring occasionally.
  8. Add the chopped cauliflower and beef broth to the skillet and stir to combine.
  9. Cover and reduce heat to low.
  10. Simmer for 6 to 8 minutes until the cauliflower is tender but not mushy.
  11. Remove the skillet from the heat.
  12. Add a few spoons of the hot soup mixture to the heavy cream and stir. This prevents the cream from curdling)
  13. Stir this cream mixture into the soup.
  14. Add the shredded cheese and stir until melted through.
  15. Add more seasoning if needed.
  16. Crumble the cooked bacon.
  17. Ladle the soup into 6 serving bowls and sprinkle the crumbled bacon and fresh chopped parsley on top of each bowl.
  18. Serve immediately!

If you have more soup than you need, store the soup and the bacon bits separately until you are ready to serve the soup.

Tips and Ideas

I used lean ground beef, but you can also use regular fat beef. I only buy lean mince when I use it in soup as it can become too greasy otherwise.

But if you want your fat to protein ratio to be higher, the easiest way to achieve that is to use regular ground beef.

You can use any cheese in this soup, but you really want to use strong-tasting cheese for maximum flavor.

I always shred my own cheese, but if you decide to buy your cheese shredded, be sure to read the label. Most shredded cheeses have an anti-caking agent added to them.

I like all the flavor in this dish but do keep in mind that the more spices and flavoring we add, the more carbs we add.
