Bacon Cheeseburger Dip – all the flavor of your favorite bacon cheeseburger in an ooey, gooey, cheesy, dip.  Great for game day, entertaining or just because!

Appetizers are one of my favorite things to bring to parties and plan what to make.  Baked Mexican Cheese Dip is pretty much a staple in our house, as my husband grew up with it and we still make it all the time.  But sometimes you want to mix it up a little.

Whenever we go to a certain friends’ house and he asks us to bring chips and a dip, I always make Cheesy Corn Dip. It is a favorite by so many, and requested all the time.  But lately, I am asked if I can make this cheeseburger dip, as it is a super close 2nd, and so easy to make.

What You’ll Need

Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for the FULL PRINTABLE recipe card.

  • Ground Beef – I like to use lean ground beef, but you can use whatever kind you like. Even ground turkey would work well
  • Cream Cheese
  • Sour Cream
  • Diced Tomatoes with Green Chiles – If you like it spicy, you can use the Hot Rotel Tomatoes for this.
  • Cheddar Cheese – This is definitely the time you want to shred your own!
  • Crumbled Bacon

Pro Tip

You can also get creative with what you want to mix in or top with. It has a classic cheeseburger flavor, so if you love pickles, add them in! Add a little bit of mustard to give it more flavor. Lots of ways to mix it up.

How to make Cheeseburger Dip

You can make this dip in the crock pot or in the oven, both work. It just depends if you want to make it ahead of time or just serve it right away. 

  1. Start by browning your ground beef in a skillet. Break it up and drain any fat that remains.
  2. Next cook and crumble your bacon. You can use pre-cooked slices to make this a little faster if you want.
  3. Mix together the bacon and ground beef with the rest of the ingredients until everything is well blended.
  4. Finally you get it hot and bubbly! You can bake it in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Or you can put it in the crock pot on low for 3-4 hours.

Recipe Tips & Tricks

  • You can use whatever kind of bacon you like for this. If you want to cook your bacon in the microwave, stovetop or make Air Fryer Bacon you can. You just want crispy bacon that gets mixed in the dip.
  • I used all cheddar cheese for this recipe, but you can mix it up and throw in Pepper Jack or Colby or whatever your favorite is. Just make sure to grate your own, that makes a big difference when melting and making a creamy dip.
  • Get creative with mix-ins! This is a basic cheeseburger flavor, that you can play with. Pickles, mustard, jalapeno, onions etc. Lots of ways to mix in more burger flavors.
  • Make it a little healthier. Use ground turkey, light cream cheese, and Greek yogurt for the sour cream and you have a high protein lighter dip.

What To Dip in Cheeseburger Dip

  • Fritos Scoops
  • Tortilla Chips
  • Crackers
  • Pretzels
  • Bread Cubes

Can You Make Bacon Cheeseburger Dip Ahead of Time

Yes, you definitely can. You can mix everything together and put it in the fridge until you are ready to heat it. Then once you are ready to warm it up, you can bake it for 30 minutes until it is hot and bubbly, or put it in the crock pot on low for a few hours.  

Cheesy dips are a hit all year round. They are always popular around sport season, but let’s face it in the middle of the summer this cheeseburger dip is still going to disappear in minutes!  

What to Do With Leftovers

You can keep any leftover dip in the fridge for up to 4 days. Just reheat a portion of it in the microwave to enjoy the leftovers. Or if you have a large amount left, you can warm in the oven until it is hot and bubbly.

    1. Yes, should should be able to freeze them. The texture might be slightly different when you reheat, because there will be a
      little more moisture.
