Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

I have made Cheeseburger Soup before, but not one that tastes EXACTLY like a cheeseburger.  Most recipes just have elements of a cheeseburger, but this recipe has it all.  This is a recipe I found and adapted from Paula Deen.  There is also a fun recipe for a bread to serve along the side using hambuger buns.  I will share that recipe with you tomorrow.

I must say my husband and oldest son were big fans of this soup and said it really does taste just like a cheeseburger.  The really unique addition to this soup is the dill pickle relish, which I always keep in my pantry.  It is perfect to mix into your tuna for a tuna sandwich.  I must say my favorite part of the soup was the French fried onions on top.  We also enjoyed some extract pickle relish mixed in.
