Bacon Cheeseburger Dip Recipe
Spray the insert of a 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.
Cook the bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels and crumble.
In a large skillet, stir the ground beef over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes until lightly browned—if the beef or turkey is not entirely cooked, don't worry. It will finish in the slow cooker. Drain well.
Return the meat to the hot skillet and stir in the cream cheese until melted. Add the cheddar cheese and stir to combine. Add the tomatoes, sweet pickle relish, mustard, and ketchup and stir until combined.
Pour the mixture into the prepared slow cooker, cover, and cook on Low for 2 hours. Turn off the slow cooker, uncover, and stir.
Serve in a bowl directly from the slow cooker, which will keep the mixture hot and dippable for up to 3 hours. Garnish with the bacon bits.
