Mushroom cheese burger soup? Yes, please! If you have been following my blog for any length of time you know how much I enjoy cooking with my slow cooker. I find that using a crock pot just makes cooking dinner a breeze, it’s a great option for busy week nights.
Although there are lots of variations of cheese burger soups floating in the internet, mine needed to be low carb. So no grains to thicken this soup. This makes for a very filling soup and goes well with my low carb “corn” bread for a complete meal.
I placed all the ingredients in my slow cooker the night before and woke up to the aroma of mushrooms and beef. Take a wild guess what I had for breakfast? That’s right a cup of soup. I hear of people who say having soup for breakfast is a great way to start the day. Honestly, I had a hard time wrapping my mind around this. Well, I got over that hurdle rather quickly. Frankly, it’s not difficult to do if your home is full of the aroma of simmering soup.
Not sure if this will become a regular breakfast staple around our home but hey why shouldn’t the cook sneak a cup early in the morning? After all, someone needs to taste it right?

Low Carb Mushroom Cheese Burger Soup
1 pound of ground beef
1 medium white onion, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
3 cloves of garlic chopped garlic
2 packages fresh mushrooms sliced (I used a combination of portobello and baby portobello mushrooms for a total of 5 cups)
2 cups beef broth
½ cup of sundries tomatoes chopped into bit sizes
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese (can be substituted for Swiss cheese)
4 ounces of cream cheese
Red onion thinly sliced
Shredded cheddar cheese
In a large skillet, brown the ground beef, onion and garlic over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook, until mushrooms are tender and brown. Next add the now browned beef and mushroom mix into a slow cooker. Add the beef broth, dry spices, and allow to simmer on low for several hours. Half an hour before serving stir in the cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese. Make sure to stir occasionally to ensure that everything is well combined.
Serve in a bowl and top with any of your favorite low carb toppings.
