This Keto soup recipe has all the flavor of a cheeseburger but in a soup with a cheesy, creamy soup base and the best part is it only takes about 30 minutes to make from start to finish!



To Start

  • 1 pound 80/20 ground beef
  • 3 tablespoons butter


  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/2 cup diced celery


  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • ground mustard powder
  • cayenne pepper and/or paprika, optional
  • 1 teaspoon Real salt *
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

To Finish

  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 16 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled


  1. In a large, enameled dutch oven start cooking the ground beef over medium heat, crumbling as necessary.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare vegetables, shred cheese and cook bacon in a separate pan if it's not already cooked.
  3. When ground beef is no longer pink and fully crumbled, drain the grease or soak up with paper towels.
  4. Add the butter to the pan and as soon as it is melted, add the vegetables and spices.
  5. Saute for 4-6 minutes, until vegetables begin to soften.
  6. Add chicken broth and let simmer for 8-10 minutes until vegetables are desired softness.
  7. Stir in heavy cream and cheese and heat just until the cheese is melted. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Serve in individual bowls topped with some sprinkled bacon and cheese.
