Venison and Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

Jeremiah Doughty

Venison cheeseburger soup recipe

Here is a recipe that takes little to no time to make and best part is its ready when you get home from a long day hunting. (Bonus your house smells amazing all day long!)


  • 1-2 pounds ground Venison (Or any game meat)
  • 4-6 cups stock (chicken, beef, homemade wild game)
  • 5-6 medium potatoes, cubed
  • 4 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 can fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon cracked pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 8 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder 
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika 
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 pound of bacon
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 oz cream cheese, cubed and softened


  1. Start out by browning your meat with 1/2 pound of bacon chopped up, 1/4 cup of onions, 3 cloves of minced garlic, 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce and 1/4 tablespoon of cracked pepper. (You do not need to brown your meat beforehand. I choose to, because I like building flavor and depth. If you choose not to brown your meat, skip this step and move on to step two.) Add meat to slow cooker
  2. Take remaining bacon and cook it up. Chop it up into small pieces. Take half and reserve it for later. The other half add to the slow cooker.
  3. In slow cooker add the following ingredients: onions, garlic, pepper, salt, Worcestershire, stock, cream cheese, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes and parsley. Mix all ingredients and set your slow cooker on low for 8-10 hours or high for 6-8 hours.
  4. When you’re ready to eat, whisk together flour and milk. Add to slow cooker along with 3 cups of shredded cheddar cheese.
  5. Now let’s plate this dish. I love to add homemade onion rings, cheese, green onions and bacon to the top of my family’s bowls. My daughters love adding sour cream and avocado. My wife spices hers up with jalapeños. Use your imagination and have fun.
  6. Eat and Enjoy!

Manage Bedding Areas and Buck-to-Doe Ratio for Better Hunting
Pat Reeve | Mossy Oak ProStaff Besides food, water and sanctuary, I provide bedding cover for the deer living on my property on south-facing ridges. We have cold weather all but about three months out of the year in Minnesota. The deer here need sunny weather, although the temperatures may be cold, for them to stay warm. We hinge-cut non-valuable trees on our 500 acres we own to help create thick bedding cover on those
