Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

This creamy recipe brings two of my absolute favorite foods together in one! The tomato, fresh lettuce and crisp bacon toppers make this soup taste just like burger time. —Geoff Bales, Hemet, CA

    I was a bit disappointed in this recipe. I have several cheeseburger soups in my rotation and I assumed this would be just as good. The soup was a bit on the bland side. The sliced cheese didn't melt well, I would suggesting adding an equivalent amount of Velveeta. Plus the ingredients broke down but that may have be me keeping it in the crock pot on warm a bit longer. It wasn't completely bad. I just think there are better options out there.
