Dine In: Bacon Cheeseburger Slow Cooker Soup


Bacon CheeseburgerIf you’ve ever had kids, or picky eaters, you know that it’s not always easy coming up with variations of their favorite meals. I have cornered the market on pizza variations, and I’ve made more varieties of tacos than I can even count. Another family favorite are cheeseburgers. My younger son says I make the best cheeseburgers in the universe. I love him.

Anyway, I don’t want to eat cheeseburgers once a week, so I had to come up with something else. I found this recipe on Pinterest. I was a bit dubious, I have to admit, but I made it one Friday night not too long ago (because some Friday nights I’m too tired to blink, let alone cook).It was a huge hit. I love my slow cooker!
