Bacon Mushroom Swiss Burger Soup

June 7th, 2012 by katie

It’s not particularly soup time of year but sometimes you just have a craving that demands fulfillment.  If you spend any time at all on Pinterest then you know a perfectly unseasonable craving can hit any time.  Luckily Glad® sent me a case of their new Freezerware™ containers so I could entertain my weather inappropriate craving.  Now I can have my soup and put away the rest for later too. 

Bacon Mushroom Swiss Burger Soup

serves 6, prep 15 min, cook 50 min, adapted from Life in Grace
  • 6 oz bacon, chopped
  • 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 lb ground sirloin

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 jalapenos, chopped
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 2 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 4 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 12 oz beer
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups kale, chopped
  • 8 oz Gruyere, shredded

  1. In a large stockpot over medium cook bacon until crisp and browned.  Remove to a paper towel lined plate with a slotted spoon.
  2. Add mushrooms to bacon fat and cook until browned. Remove to a separate plate.
  3. Add sirloin, onion, garlic, and jalapenos to the pot and brown.
  4. Add tomatoes, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire, honey, beer, and chicken stock.  Bring to a simmer.

  6. Remove soup from heat and stir in cheese.  Taste and season with salt and pepper.
  7. Allow soup to cool to room temperature then ladle into small sized freezer containers in 2 cup portions.
  8. Freeze.  Reheat gently in the microwave anytime a craving hits.

    There is absolutely nothing about this soup I don’t like!! Of course, since it’s already in the 90’s here in Dallas, I’ll have to wait a bit to try it out but it’s on the list!!

    I live in south Florida and have inappropriate cravings for soup during the summer. (of course I used to love ice cream in Philadelphia winters…but that’s beside the point).

    As soon as I saw this recipe I SQUEED and texted by best foodie friend my goal of eating this soup NOW!

    Looks amazing!

    When do you add the bacon & mushrooms back in? After step 6 or 7?

About chaos

cha·os -noun 1. a condition or place of great disorder or confusion. My chaotic kitchen is the result of three kids, two adults, dog, cat, and fish, a food obsession, a wine drinking hobby, and too few hours in the day. Between trying to feed a family of five healthy, happy meals, watching my weight, saving my pennies, and staying partially sane I have picked up a few tricks along the way. So here they are: the very best tips, tricks, and recipes from my chaotic kitchen-to yours!
