WARNING – this is not diet food!
This dip is perfect for a crowd at your next party. At our Super Bowl Party this year this dip was the one that had the highest percentage of it eaten, so that should speak for itself. There is nothing “healthy” about this – so make sure to cook it for a crowd so the calories consumed will be lower… high calories (divided by) more people (equals) less calories per person!
In order to make this dish, you will need to make “Bacon Strip and Bacon Strips and Bacon Strips” (a little Epic Meal Time Shout-Out there).
The flavors of your favorite burger are so awesome in this dip. You get little bursts of flavor in every bite. It would be perfect with some fresh lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and onions (or whatever you like on your burger) sprinkled on top – so get your friends together and enjoy this the next time you need a good hearty snack!
- ½ 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
- ½ cup sour cream
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- ½ cup mozzarella, shredded
- ½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 Tablespoon worcestershire sauce
- 2 Tablespoon ketchup
- Cook the ground beef in a pan over medium heat, set it aside and drain the grease from the pan. Cook the bacon in the pan until crispy, about 6-10 minutes, set aside and drain all but a tablespoon of the grease.
- Add the onion and saute until tender, about 5-7 minutes. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about a minute. Mix the ground beef, bacon, cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, mozzarella, cheddar, worcestershire sauce and ketchup and pour it into a baking dish. *it can be set aside at this point in the refrigerator with a lid on it - to cook a chilled dish, either take out to bring to room temperature or put baking dish in the oven while the oven pre-heats
- Bake in a preheated 350F oven until the top starts turning a light golden brown and then sides are bubbling, about 20-30 minutes. You could top with some lettuce and tomatoes. Serve with slices of bread, pita chips, celery, or lettuce - whatever you would like for dipping.
