Looking for an alternative to your chips and salsa routine? This warm, melty Cheeseburger Dip has all the taste appeal of a traditional burger in dippable form - perfect for casual entertaining.

We love this Cheeseburger Dip because it has all the fixings of our favorite burger topped with the robust flavor of Kerrygold Mature Cheddar Cheese. Plus this dip is flexible, too. Love mushrooms on your burger? Sauté a few ‘shrooms and stir them into the dip. Craving more meat? Add some crumbled, cooked bacon. However you customize your dip, make sure to set out a big bowl of your favorite potato chips. They make the perfect dipper for this gooey dip.

Another reason this Cheeseburger Dip scores big? You can make it ahead of time. Prep the dip the night before, pop it in the fridge and then bake through right before kickoff. Hosting duties - and game day apps – don’t get much easier than that!
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Brown ground beef in a skillet over medium heat, adding onion and garlic about halfway through browning. Drain excess fat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Stir together cream cheese, mayonnaise, ketchup, sour cream and 150g of Kerrygold Mature Cheddar Cheese. Stir in beef mixture until well combined. Pour into a greased baking dish. Top with remaining 50g of cheese.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes or until bubbly. Garnish with chopped lettuce and tomato, if desired. Serve warm with potato chips.
Note: This dip can be prepared through step 3, covered and refrigerated for up to 24 hours. Continue with step 4 when ready to serve, allowing a few extra minutes of baking time if dip is cold.
