Ingredients and Variations
Meat – Ground beef and bacon are a perfect pair! Ground turkey or chicken can work, too.
Cheese – Choose your cheese! This recipe is adaptable if you have Monterey Jack, a Mexican blend, or even pepper jack. Feel free to mix and match! Or switch out the shredded cheese and use Velveeta instead! Cream cheese and sour cream make cheeseburger dip extra rich and creamy, so go for the full-fat varieties.
Extras – Add a can of Rotel tomatoes, salsa, black olives, sliced jalapenos, or even pickle slices!

Serving And Storage
- Serve it with easy dippers like pretzels, crostini, tortilla chips, or pita chips. Dunk breadsticks into cheeseburger dip, or even pieces of crusty french bread or thick slices of Texas toast!
- Keep leftover bacon cheeseburger dip in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat it and serve it over omelets, or a frittata, over breakfast potatoes, or stir some into homemade chili.
- Freeze portions in zippered bags and thaw in the refrigerator or a slow cooker on low. Due to the high amount of dairy, cheeseburger dip will separate but it’s easy to add extra shredded cheese to refresh it!
