Dip #3 in the Triple Dipper - Bacon Cheeseburger Dip

So the last dip I did in the crock pot was this one.  I got the recipe from Betty Crocker but modified it slightly since I don't do peppers.

Original Recipe...

Modified Recipe....

  • Half a jar of the Hormel Real Bacon Bits
  • 1/4 lb of lean ground beef
  • 8oz of cream cheese
  • 3/4 can of drained petite diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
In a skillet brown the ground beef.  Shop Rite only had 1.5 lbs of meat.  I used the other pound for my new post (bite sized meatloafs).
Preheat the crock pot.  Put in the cream cheese and let it soften until you can mix it.  Add the browned beef and the half a jar of bacon pieces (you can use real bacon crumbled up but that sure as hell wasn't happening for me on Sunday morning with both kids and the hubby at work :-)).
Mix this all together well.  Add the 3/4 of the can of tomatoes.  Stir.  Let it heat up about 10 mins.  I do this because it you don't let that stuff heat up the cheese will be hard to melt and will clump together.
Add the cheese.  Cook for 30-45 mins.  Stir every 15 mins or so.  The picture doesn't do it justice.  It tasted just like a bacon cheeseburger.  I really need to start taking better after pictures of the food.


I made this again for a birthday party and I have a better after picture!


  1. what do you serve this dip with? Chips or crackers?

    1. I've used it all....tortilla chips, pretzel chips (these were yummy), ritz crackers, and one of my favorites...pita bread cut into triangles.
