I used to make a killer cheeseburger soup in our pre-paleo days, but it was full of ingredients we no longer eat. I thought about all of my favorite bunless burger toppings that made sense in a soup, and this is what I came up with. The pickles probably sound strange, but I used a fairly small amount, and they were a fun addition that we all enjoyed. It’s really easy to tailor this soup to your liking though–omit what you don’t like, add more of what you like, and/or add your own favorite burger toppings.
My finished product does not resemble the super thick stuff I used to make in the least, but I didn’t want to mess with it by trying to add anything to thicken it up. It’s still a delicious, hearty soup full of all sorts of good stuff!
