"Ready, Set, Cook! Contest Entry" Bread bowl soups are one of those food vessels that never gets old. This recipe takes that concept and embraces the American cuisine by containing an age old classic, the bacon cheeseburger. And what good is a cheeseburger without cheese? I have also included a blue cheese sauce in this recipe to add that element of elegance to an otherwise very casual dish.
