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 really 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!
- 1/2 pound bacon, one tablespoon of bacon fat reserved
- 1/2 pound yellow or sweet onion, cut into medium-sized dice
- 2 pounds 80/20 ground beef
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/2 cup your favorite relish
- 2–3 tablespoons yellow mustard
- 1 tablespoon A-1 Sauce
- 1/2 pound sliced American cheese
- Corn chips for dipping
- Cook bacon to crisp and crumble, reserving one tablespoon of bacon fat. Set bacon aside.
- In a large skillet over medium high, add bacon fat and onions. Cook onions 3-5 minutes until soft. Press them to the sides and add ground beef to center and cook, breaking meat apart. Cook until no longer pink.
- Drain meat mixture and return to heat and add ketchup, relish, mustard and A-1 sauce. Lower heat and add cheese and stir until it melts and mixture is hot.
- Pour out into a serving bowl and serve with your favorite corn chips.
