This Slow Cooker Cheeseburger dip is one of favorites because it is so versatile and everyone loves it.
Can you make Slow Cooker Cheeseburger Dip on the Stove top?Everything in my life has to be multifunctional so if you don’t have a crock pot this recipe can be cooked on the stove top and served hot in your favorite serving dish. You can even make this appetizer ahead of time and store in an air tight container in the refrigerator for a day or two. You can even put it in an oven safe dish and heat at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes until hot and bubbly. The slow cooker keeps it hot for the entire gatherings so if space is a concern for not having a crock pot, try getting one of these mini crock pots, not only are they affordable, they are the perfect size for this dip and it doesn’t take up a lot of room in your kitchen or on your party display table.

Can the Slow Cooker Cheeseburger dip be frozen?You can absolutely freeze this dip as long as the cheese dip has not sat out at your party for too long. It should be sealed in an air tight bag or container and gently thawed for a day or two in the refrigerator before heating and serving. I like to use a blend of ground beef and sausage in this recipe because I really think that it adds more flavor to the finished dip. You start by browning the ground beef in a large skillet with my House Blend Seasoning and Worchestershire sauce. This skillet is my favorite because it cooks the meat evenly and cleans up so nicely, I have has it for years. The key to a nice smooth dip is to have the meat chopped finely. I use this meat chopper. It makes the job so much easier. Drain and place in the slow cooker and repeat with the sausage. Then add the rest of the ingredients including my Burger Seasoning Blend and into your crock pot and cover and cook on low for 3 to 4 hours and you are good to go. It couldn’t be easier and more delicious. Serve with your favorite corn chip, toasted bread or other hearty cracker.
