Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

It's Fall, and it's definitely soup weather! I love a good hearty bowl of soup on a chilly rainy day especially.  I wanted to make a video of this but have had no time lately!!  Working on another video right now that I did actually last week of Bavarian (Apple) Zucchini Torte.  Trying to find time to put it all together and get it uploaded has been crazy this last week!  My husband retired and the ECFE classes I'm an assistant in started, and I'm downright tired and worn out.

But back to the cheeseburger soup.  I love this recipe.  I've posted it before on the Bernstein Forum, but I felt like I needed to get it on my blog.  It's one of my favorites.  The original recipe that inspired it came from Taste of Home.  I've altered it enough to low carb it that it is an entirely different recipe so I feel I can call it my own!  I hope you enjoy it.
