Food Friday - Bacon Double Cheese Burger Dip

If you have followed this blog for long, you have learned that we enjoy little appetizer parties therefore I am always looking for new recipes.  I've tried a lot over the past year and only a couple have made the cut.  When I came across this recipe - well it looked hopeful, and it did not disappoint.

I have to apologize - I took this photo on the second helping of the dip.  So yes, it is THAT good!  Wow.  I am a huge fan of worcestershire sauce so when I saw that as an ingredient I knew it had to be good and I was not disappointed at all.  My husband and I ate this for dinner one night after church - it was just as it promised, a burger in a dip!

  • 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
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella, shredded
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoon ketchup
  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, onions and garlic, 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
