Bacon Cheeseburger Dip

This will be a new addition to our Super Bowl Gathering

Bacon Cheeseburger Dip(another great recipe from my friend Vicki)

1 pound ground beef
½ onion (diced)
¼ cup ketchup
1 tablespoon sweet and spicy mustard
8 oz Velveeta cheese (cubed)
8 oz cream cheese
½ of a 3oz jar Real Bacon Bits
6 oz shredded cheddar (or cheese of your choice)
Diced Tomatoes (optional)

Brown the beef and drain. Use a little of the grease to sauté the onions. Combine the beef, ketchup, mustard, onions and Velveeta and cook over low heat until all the cheese is melted.

Spread the cream cheese on the bottom of a 9” pie plate. Spread hamburger mixture over cream cheese. Sprinkle bacon bits (and diced tomatoes) over mixture. Top with the shredded cheddar.

Cover with parchment lined foil and bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Remove foil and continue cooking until cheese is slightly browned. Serve with tortillas, crackers or bread rounds.

Wine on Wednesdays

W-o-W is a group of 16 friends that meet every Wednesday to share a glass (or two) of wine and catch up on each other's lives. We have been through births, weddings, deaths, illnesses and life celebrations together. On any given Wednesday there may be only four of us up to thirty plus when we host a "Family W-o-W". I have come to treasure these friends and look forward to our 200th W-o-W on April 1st!
