Over the last few years, we’ve been invited to some barbecues and parties at the home of one of my husband Jack’s co-workers. Without fail, Glenn and Keri always serve some addictively good food – like today’s Bacon Cheeseburger Dip!
This bacon cheeseburger dip is the perfect appetizer to serve at any game day party! My husband Jack described this as a ‘deconstructed bacon cheeseburger’ – ground beef mixed with all of your favorite burger fixings: melted cheese, ketchup, relish, mustard – and we added some sautéed onions and A-1 Sauce for some additional depth of flavor. Then a sprinkle of crispy bacon on top finishes things off.
All combined – this bacon cheeseburger dip is hard to resist! Enjoy!
