Keto-Friendly Cheeseburger Soup
Again, Cheesburger Soup is a staple at my house and very well-loved. The regular version of this soup is loaded with all the good things that make it great. Here is my quest at Keto-Friendly cheeseburger Soup, which was a success!
1# ground beef
1/2 large onion, chopped
2 T butter
red pepper flakes
Italian Seasoning mix
4 heaping tablespoons sour cream
1 c. heavy cream
3 c. cheddar
1 head of cauliflower (except next time, I will probably use 2! chop up it unless you like HUGE chunks.)
8 slices of bacon, chopped
Get your bacon going in the oven. Once done, chop it up. Remember to save the grease.
In an Instant pot, get butter, minced garlic, and onion, cooking till translucent. Add meat, sausage, and seasoning, and cook till done. Drain, if necessary. Once drained, add Italian seasoning and Red pepper flakes (not too much if you don’t like the heat).
Once done, add in some water and chicken broth. Taste to see if it needs any more seasoning. Chop cauliflower (realize that by using the Instant pot, some of the smaller cauliflower will dissolve, so chop a mix of larger pieces (think potato chunks) and smaller ones so that they will dissolve and create a thicker consistency).
Once you get all that in the pot, add enough water and/or chicken broth to cover the meat and cauliflower. Set on the “soup” function, which for me was 10 minutes. Do a quick release.
Add in the heavy cream, sour cream, and cheese. Stir till combined and taste for seasoning purposes or to add more cheese. After all, that, add your chopped bacon.
The soup was delicious. You could not tell that I did not use potatoes or a “cream” type of soup in it.
