Makes 5 servings (about 1 cup)
5 slices of bacon (uncured, nitrate free)
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 tsp. garlic powder

3 cups beef broth
2 tsp. brown mustard
1/2 tsp. black pepper

Cut bacon into bite sized pieces and cook in the bottom of a dutch oven pot until almost crispy, then set aside on a paper towel.
Drain excess bacon fat and add ground beef and cook until browned, breaking it up as it cooks. Move beef to the sides of the pot. Add butter and spices to the pan.
Add beef broth, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, mustard to the pot and let cook for a few minutes until melted.
Cover pot and turn to low heat. Cook for 20-30 minutes.
Turn stove off, then finish by slowly adding heavy cream while stirring. Add crumbled bacon and stir well and serve.
