Hearty Crockpot Bacon Cheeseburger Soup Recipe - Your family will love this!

With autumn in the air, it’s time to dust off the crockpot and savor soup for dinner. I don’t know about you, but once the weather starts changing my body starts craving comfort food. This soup hits the right spot.

Always Brown the Beef!

As with all crockpot recipes using ground beef, you need to brown the meat in a skillet before adding it to the crock. If you’re using an Instant Pot you can do it right in the insert using the saute function. (Here’s the version I use.)

Either way, be sure to drain the meat before adding the rest of the ingredients. Also, don’t stir in the tomatoes and bacon until the final 20 minutes to keep their colors bright.
