Bacon Double Cheese Burger Dip For The Big Game

Posted by    |    February 1st, 2012 at 11:00 am

I’ll freely admit that I’m much more interested in the food being served on “Big Game Sunday” than the teams on the field.  It’s basically a day of appetizers and drinks-what could be better?  If you find yourself hosting a party, invited to one, or just wanting to fix something yummy while you eagerly anticipate commercial breaks, I recommend this Bacon Double Cheese Burger Dip.  It’s not a low-cal option, so don’t blame me when you become addicted to the rich, cheesy goodness.

Ingredients
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 6 strips bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoon ketchup
Directions
  1. Cook the ground beef in a pan over medium heat, set it aside and drain the grease from the pan.
  2. Cook the bacon in the pan until crispy, about 6-10 minutes, set aside and drain all but a tablespoon of the grease.
  3. Add the onion and saute until tender, about 5-7 minutes.
  4. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about a minute.
  5. Mix the ground beef, bacon, cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, mozzarella, cheddar, worcestershire sauce and ketchup and pour it into a baking dish.
  6. Bake in a preheated 350F oven until the top starts turning a light golden brown and then sides are bubbling, about 20-30 minutes.

*I recommend bread rounds, baguettes, or good old fashioned chips for dipping!
