Sept. 18 is National Cheeseburger Day, but why do it the old boring way? Why follow the status quo with a burger and a bun?

Borrowed from our friends at Delish, this yummy bacon cheeseburger dip combines many of the same yummy ingredients used in cheeseburgers, from the ground beef to the onion to the cheese. But it’s a dip.

And no one can say no to a good dip. Trying to follow a low-carb lifestyle? This is the perfect option, as long as you don't grab some potato chips to dip in ... the dip.

Bacon Cheeseburger Dip Recipe:

Ingredients

1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 lb. ground beef
6 slices bacon
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
3/4 c. shredded cheddar
3/4 c. shredded Monterey jack
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. garlic powder
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Potato chips, for serving

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Cook onion until soft, 4 to 5 minutes, then add beef and cook until no longer pink, about 6 minutes. Drain fat, then add beef to a large bowl.
  2. Wipe out skillet and add bacon. Cook over medium heat until crispy, 6 minutes, then drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool, then crumble and add to bowl with the beef.
  3. Add cream cheese, cheddar, Monterey jack, Worcestershire, and garlic powder to bowl and season generously with salt and pepper.
  4. Transfer mixture to an ovenproof baking dish or skillet and bake until dip is warmed through and cheese is golden and bubbly, 12 to 15 minutes.
  5. Serve with potato chips.
