Whenever you are melting cheese in the slow cooker, using freshly grated cheese is best. Prepackaged shredded cheese has a film and is a lot harder to melt as it’s drier than freshly grated cheese.

To make this cheeseburger soup quicker:

  • prepare the hamburger and bacon the night before
  • prepare your vegetables and place in a ziploc bag, storing in the refrigerator until you are ready to use
  • shred the cheese and place in the refrigerator in a ziploc bag.
