Cheesy Hamburger Dip

I love a good juicy burger… and what better on a burger than a slice of cheddar cheese? If you’re looking for the best cheddar flavor, sharp is the way to go! A good melty cheddar cheese is obviously the best burger topping (along with pickles of course)!

As much as I love a juicy cheeseburger on a sesame seed bun, I think I love this scoopable Cheesy Hamburger Dip even more! It is loaded with the best burger flavors, pickle, bacon and of course heaps of Seriously Sharp Cheddar Cheese adds loads of bold cheddar flavor.

Cabot is celebrating their 100th anniversary as a co-op this year and what better way to celebrate than with this cheesy game day dip! Cabot Cheese is owned by 1,000 farm families throughout New England and New York and all proceeds are funnelled directly back to the farmers. ❤️

Cheesy Hamburger Dip can be made ahead for any potluck or party and everyone loves the flavors in this dip! I prep this this cheeseburger dip in the morning (or even the night before) and pop it in the oven when my guests arrive. By halftime, you will have a hot cheesy dip that is ready to be devoured. Serve it alongside cheddar sesame crackers (or tortilla chips)!

To make Cheddar Sesame Crackers: simply cut circles (or shapes) out of tortillas, brush with butter and sprinkle with a generous serving of Seriously Sharp Cheddar and bake until golden or crisp. This can be done 3 days ahead of time!

Ingredients for hamburger dip like pickles, Cabot cheese, bacon, and ketchup.

How To Make Hamburger Dip

There are few things better than a good cheese dip, including this juicy cheeseburger dip! The secret to a cream cheese based dip is using a hand mixer to combine the base. This adds air into the cream cheese making it creamy and easy to scoop! I’ve added in my favorite burger flavors in this recipe, if you have toppings you love, add them in… minced onion, yellow mustard, relish, steak spice are all great in this recipe!

To make this Cheesy Hamburger Dip:

  1. Brown ground beef
  2. Combine Cabot Cream Cheese and mix-ins
  3. Stir in Seriously Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  4. Top with more cheddar cheese and bacon
  5. Bake until hot and bubbly and cheese is melted

Chopped lettuce, pickles and diced tomatoes are great toppings for this hamburger dip. If you’re a fan of  Jalapeno Popper Dip, add a few diced jalapenos to the mix!

Can You Freeze Cream Cheese Dips

Yes, you sure can! If you happen to have any leftovers, this dip is perfect to freeze and save for a snack another day! It’s also great to make into stuffed mushrooms (just fill and bake) or even to spread on toast!

  1. And now I realized that the recipe tells you to add 1/2 of the bacon with the cheese. But it never mentions what to do with the other 1/2. Does it go on top before baking? On top after baking is complete? Hmmmmmm…..

  2. This recipe is missing something. What do you do with the drained ground beef? Is it layered or mixed in with the cheese, bacon and whipped ingredients? Trying to make it right now……
