It’s Souper Bowl Week here on NeighborFood which means my friends and I are loading you up with comforting soup recipes fit for any Super Bowl party or cold winter night. I’m kicking off the festivities with this Slow Cooker Cheeseburger Soup loaded with crispy bacon, tater tots, and cheddar cheese PLUS a Le Creuset giveaway! Read on to find out how to enter!
Food mashups seem to be all the rage these days. For the most part, I’ve watched the trend with mild interest and a raised eyebrow. I generally prefer my food to be one thing. I want a chocolate chip cookie, not a chocolate chip cookie stuffed with an Oreo topped with a cupcake and sandwiched around ice cream. I’d like my burger on a plain ol’ bun, not a donut, and please, for the love of all that is holy, keep my pizza Dorito-free Pizza Hut.
Still, there are exceptions to my distaste for mashups. A local donut place serves a doughssant, which is a croissant deep fried and glazed like a donut, and it’s mind blowingly good. Another exception? This Bacon Cheeseburger Soup.
When you’re craving something creamy and warm, but also want the savory, cheesy goodness of a burger, this is the dinner for you. This meal is satisfying and rich, with all the flavor of your favorite bacon cheeseburger and all of the comfort of a hot bowl of soup.
This soup is loaded with onion, potatoes, tomato, ground beef, and lots of cheddar cheese. But like any burger, the toppings make all the difference. This one is piled high with crispy bacon, tater tots, and green onions. It’s your burger and fries all in one bowl! And the best part? It’s gluten free and easy to make!
When you can’t quite decide if it’s a burger night or a soup night, don’t sweat it! Just make this soup and get a taste of both in every bite.
This week, my friends Emily of Jelly Toast and Melanie of Melanie Makes are teaming up to bring you a week full of hearty, warming, comforting soups. They’re just the thing you’ll want to come home to on a cold winter night, and they’re perfect for feeding a crowd at your Super Bowl parties! We’re celebrating this Soup-er Bowl Extravaganza by giving away a gorgeous 5 quart Le Creuset French Oven. This is a staple piece for any kitchen, and the ultimate soup-cooking vessel.

I’m definitely hot and cold on the topic of mashups, depending on the item. But I have no reservations about this one. In fact, I’m wondering why tater tots aren’t a more widespread topper for soups of all kinds. I’m making this for Jeff, and soon. He’s a tot fanatic!
Dude!! Tater tots!! This is the best Courtney! Also that doritos pizza makes me want to hurl.
Yes! I am totally with you on the mash up recipes. I swear some combinations make my head spin. This soup, however, is totally on point my friend! I love soup with a ton of toppings!! Especially tot toppings 😉
The tot topping? GENIUS!
I love you so much for this soup and mostly because you topped it with tots. You are a genius!
