In Purrsuit of Flavors

                                                                    This month is One Dish Meals
                                                                     Sponsored by the Tybee and Shoko at Canadian Cats

We figure anything cooked in the crockpot qualifies for this theme.  Since Mom tries not to eat carbs, this soup is hearty and satisfying!

Wait....that's not the soup....that's Angel Allie in the crockpot!

Here is our recipe!!

Bacon Cheeseburger Soup


  • 4 cups beef stock
  • 1 medium tomato, diced (or a 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes)
  • 1/3 cup chopped dill pickles

  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt, more to taste
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 ½ pounds ground beef
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  1. Heat the slow cooker on low setting.
  2. To the slow cooker, add the beef stock, tomato, pickles, Dijon, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, sea salt, and black pepper.
  3. In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, cook the ground beef, onions, and garlic until the ground beef is browned and cooked all the way through. Drain the excess grease and add to the slow cooker. Cover and cook for 6 hours.

My momma is writing down this recipe, cuz she is avoiding them Demon Carbs, too. Her favorite recipe for breakfast is to sautee mushrooms with cherry tomatoes, add handfuls of fresh spinach...let simmer, crack an egg over it and let that simmer. It's very delicious, and I don't even like spinach. Purrs, Dori

Mom says that she thinks this must have a million calories, but she thinks it would be great for a cold, winter day.
