I love soup.. although nothing beats a warm bowl of soup on a cold winters day, I will enjoy it just as much on a hot summers day (in air conditioning of course haha) I typically make soups in my crock pot but you can just as easily make them in a pot on the stove. I wanted a hearty creamy soup and this bacon cheeseburger soup did not disappoint, I used ground chicken to keep points low but you could swap out for ground beef if you don’t mind spending some extra points. This is probably one of the creamiest soups I’ve made and I was instantly in love with it..ย Hash brownย potatoes work great in it and keep it simple, here is a link to my product reviews so you can see the brand I buy and compare nutrition. If you have been craving a tasty creamy delicious soup I highly recommend this one, go make it now haha!ย  Makes 12- 1 cup servings at 4 smart points each on WW freestyle

Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 3 hrs 30 mins
Total Time 3 hrs 45 mins
Course Soup
Servings 12


  • 1 lb fat free ground chicken weighed raw
  • 3 cups frozen hash browns *I linked to the ones I use in my opening write up
  • 1.5 cups chopped carrots
  • 1.5 cups diced onion
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp basil
  • 6 slices cooked and crumbled center cut bacon
  • 1 cup reduced fat shredded cheese any kind will do
  • 2 Tbsp light butter *I use Gay Lea check your local grocery store they usually carry a brand
  • 3 Tbsp flour
  • 2 cups milk *I used skim


  • Cook your ground chicken in a pan on the stove and drain. Add chicken, hash browns, carrots, onions, chicken broth, salt & pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and basil to the crock pot, stir well and cook on high for 3 hours, or low 6 hours.
  • About 15 minutes before the cooking time is up you can make your roux that you will add to the soup *you can also cook your bacon at this time if you have not already.
  • In a pan over med-low heat on the stove melt your butter, add flour and stir..slowly whisk in milk. Stir continuously for about 5-10 minutes until sauce thickens. Once sauce is a creamy texture add to your crock pot. Then stir in cheese and crumbled cooked bacon.
  • Let cook another 20 minutes to melt all the cheese.
  • Soup makes 12- 1 cup servings
  • *Feel free to add in some celery, I choose not to as I am not a fan, if you do then maybe add a little extra broth.. Soup will freeze well, store in the fridge for a few days.

    You had me at BACON CHEESEBURGER! This looks so yummy! Cant wait to try this one ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I wish you had mentioned that the hash brown potatoes are cubed and not shredded. Hashbrowns are shredded here and there all they sell in the store so that’s what I bought. Also, you should specify on the recipe title that this is a slow cooler recipe. I went to make it for dinner and realized when it was way too late. You should also provide stovetop instructions. Finally, how exactly is this cheeseburger soup made with ground chicken??

      Hi Cindy.. well in instruction number 1) it does say to use your slow cooker… I apologize about the hash browns however I think it is pretty clear in the picture how they look and I link in the opening write up to the ones I use..here is Canada we typically only sell cubed, how am I to know that where you are they are all shredded?? And lastly a cheeseburger can be made with any kind of ground meat and if you had read the opening write up I say right in it that I used ground chicken to keep points low but you could easily swap out for beef if that is your preference!!

    • How rude can you be?!?! All of these things were clear from actually READING the post. Some of yalls mamas mustโ€™ve never said โ€œif you donโ€™t have anything nice to say, donโ€™t say anything at all.โ€ Thank you Kate for sharing these awesome recipes that we get to enjoy for FREE.

          Cindyโ€™s comment is totally disrespectful. Read the recipe before you do it. Way to take responsibility for your own actions… How old are you anyway??

        • This looks amazing! I don’t have any hashbrowns, I think I’ll try just cubing up a couple potatoes (that’ll work, right??) excited to try this! Thanks, for all your hard work!

          • Drizzle

            Yes that will definitely work, hope you enjoyed it ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Wow, Cindy. Sorry, but that’s an awful lot of criticism that could have been avoided if you had just read the complete recipe and looked at the pics or clicked the links. Kate puts a heck of a lot of work into these recipes and is kind enough to share with us all. And again, I’m sorry, I dont think it should be difficult to figure out how to change this from crockpot to stovetop. This looks fabulous, and I for one want to thank you Kate for another great idea!!!

      Thank you Cathy ๐Ÿ™‚ I think I made it pretty clear in the write up, the instructions and the pictures as to how I made this recipe and I also stated I used ground chicken to keep points low.. some people don’t bother to read through things and some people don’t have filters… you’d be surprised at some of the comments I see haha.. but thanks for having my back ๐Ÿ™‚ hope you enjoy the soup if you make it

  4. Making this for the second time! It is so good! Thanks for all your amazing recipes!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Anne, so glad you are enjoying the recipes and I love this soup too ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. This was super tasty! I actually had forgot that was crock pot recipe and easily made it on the stove. I just brought it to boil then simmered for 20 minutes and put on low while I made the rye and cooked bacon. Suoer easy. I also didnt notice the cubed potatoes and made with shredded turned out great. Finally doctored it a but based on what I had in the house and used yellow onion instead of red, Turkey bacon instead of pork, added a yellow pepper for additional color and flavor and added sweet and tangy bbq seasoning. It is soooo yummy! Great creamy soup for little points! Thanks for the recipe!

      Hi Martha thanks for sharing your tips, I appreciate it ๐Ÿ™‚ so glad you enjoyed the soup, it has become one of my favorites ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Drizzle Reply

      I have only frozen after cooking, I’m not too sure about freezing it beforehand

  6. This was AMAZING! I did add the celery and I only had shredded hashbrowns — loved it. Oh and a sprinkle of Trader Joes Onion Salt on top with fresh chopped green onions. NO ONE would know this is diet. Thanks so much ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Kim, yay so glad you enjoyed it, one of my favorite soups ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Nicole Gendreau Reply

    Can I used my own diced potatoes? I canโ€™t seem to find the ones similar to yours! Thanks for all the wonderful recipes!!

  8. I made this today and it was yummy. I added some extra chicken broth and it wasn’t as thick. I will not do that next time so it will be thicker. Husband and kiddos liked it also.

  9. Made the soup this weekend just as the recipe was written and it was delicious! Have some frozen for chilly fall nights when I want something warm.

      Hi Susan, so glad you enjoyed the soup, it is one of my favs ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Can you use ground lean beef or turkey? Think that would still taste good?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Yes absolutely! Any ground meat will work well with the soup, I just used chicken to keep the points low, the ground beef will add extra points

    Love love love this recipe. I made it on a Monday and ate it every day for lunch this week and was sad there was none left today. I used fresh potatoes instead of hashbrowns and it didn’t hurt it.
    Thanks for making Weight watchers a little easier!

      Hi Robbi-Lynn, so glad you enjoyed the soup and thanks for the tip on the potatoes ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. A big hit for the whole family! This soup is delicious! I switched out the ground chicken for shredded chicken breast.

    I just made this tonight and it is so yummy! Will definitely be making this again. I did add a bit of corn starch to thicken it up but I normally put a little too much broth it.

  14. I made this tonight using the 99% fat free ground Turkey because I cannot find ground chicken where I live. I also made it in the stove top. I cooked the Turkey then removed it. I sautรฉed the veggies then added the chicken, broth and seasonings. I cooked for about 15 minutes or so then added the potatoes. I ended up adding about a cup more of broth and the rest of the potatoes in the bag. I mashed it all a little with a potato masher before adding the milk roux. I kept the roux mixture ingredients the same. Turned out amazing. Thank you!

  16. Oh my god this soup is delicious!!! I am a huge soup fanatic and was looking for some low point recipes. Boy this did not disappoint! And so low in points!! I tweaked it a little bit and used turkey bacon and oat milk but Iโ€™m seriously impressed! Your a recipe genius!!
