Bacon Double Cheeseburger Dip

Bacon Double Cheese Burger Dip

Servings: makes 8+ servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients
• 1 pound ground beef
• 12 strips bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
• 1 large onion, diced
• 2 cloves garlic, chopped
• 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
• 1 cup sour cream
• 1 cup mayonnaise
• 1 cup mozzarella, shredded
• 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
• 2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
• 4 tablespoon ketchup

Directions
1. Cook the ground beef in a pan over medium heat, set it aside and drain the grease from the pan.
2. Cook the bacon in the pan until crispy, about 6-10 minutes, set aside and drain all but a tablespoon of the grease.  (Honestly, I left ALL the grease!)  And the longer cooked, the better.  That carmelized flavor really gives it an extra special shot of delcious!
3. Add the onion and saute until tender, about 5-7 minutes.
4. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about a minute.
5. Mix the ground beef, bacon, onions and garlic, cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, mozzarella, cheddar, Worcestershire sauce and ketchup and pour it into a baking dish.
6. Bake in a preheated 350F oven until the top starts turning a light golden brown and then sides are bubbling, about 20-30 minutes.
