Soups of the World - Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

No prizes for guessing where this soup comes from! The USA are pretty great at soup recipes that emulate other foods. We've already tried lasagna soup and it was delicious. So I have high hopes for this recipe.


500g minced beef
2 onions
2 cups cheese
1 can tomatoes
6-8 ready cooked bacon rashers
1/2 cup celery
1 cup carrots
2 cups potatoes
8oz cream cheese
4 cups stock
1/4 cup flour
1 cup milk
3-4 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon parsley
1/2 teaspoon pepper

 Saute the minced beef and onion in a pan until cooked.

Everything gets added to a slow cooker now so start to chop up your carrot, potatoes and celery. Put it all in except for the cheese, flour and milk.

Give it a good mix, cover and leave to cook on Low for 7 hours.

10 minutes before you want to eat it, thicken it up with the flour and milk mixed together. Add the cheese and stir well. Cook for 10 more minutes until the cheese is melted. Then serve!

This wasn't the most attractive soup I've made but it was tasty nontheless! It was like nothing I've tasted before, not exactly cheeseburger like in flavour but with some elements of it. We both ate two bowls of it either way.
