Recipe: Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

1/2 pound ground beef, browned, drained
6 to 8 slices bacon, browned, crumbled
2 (10 3/4 ounce) cans cheddar cheese soup
2 soup cans milk

In large saucepan, combine all ingredients.  Simmer over low heat 20 minutes.  Makes 6 servings
My husband loves bacon, like Paula Deen loves butter.  When I am creating recipes, he almost always suggests I add bacon to it.  This recipe is perfect for him.  It has a lot of his favorite flavors in one bowl.  The rich taste of cheddar cheese, combined with the hearty flavor of beef and of course his favorite ingredient, bacon.  It tastes like it's name, Bacon Cheese Burger Soup.
I am often asked how I come up with recipes.  One way I come up with recipes is by going to restaurants and trying to figure out what is in the dish I am eating.  I carry a small notebook with me wherever I go.  The one above is the current one I am carrying.  When I go to a restaurant and taste something I like, I write down what I think is in the dish and make notes in the notebook.  Then I will go home and try to recreate the recipe.
Above is a picture of the page in the notebook for Bacon Cheeseburger Soup.  While I was traveling this summer promoting my newest cookbook, I went to a restaurant and had a bowl of this soup.  It is a simple soup, so figuring out what was in it was easy.  When I returned home from my travels, this was one of the first recipes I recreated.  I knew my husband would love it and since I had been out of town for so long, I thought it was time to spoil him with food he would love.

This recipe will be in the cookbook I am currently writing.  The cookbook is called, BUSY WOMAN'S 3 & 4 INGREDIENT COOKBOOK.  This cookbook will be available next summer.
