Big Mac Dip

Big Mac Cheeseburger Dip

Big Mac Cheeseburger Dip is everybody’s favorite burger (that’s subjective, but it has a pretty damn good reputation) transformed into a dippable appetizer. Low carb and full of flavor, this is an easy crowd pleaser for cookouts, football parties or just a Saturday afternoon.

Ok, so we all have our own quirky little cheeseburger ways.

I love any cheeseburger, any time of the day.

Well, I say that but there are certain condiments that must be on my burger or I won’t be real happy.

At the very least cheese, mayo, and pickles.

When I make my own, it generally has more stuff packed on it that a lot of times a fork is required, like here, here and here.

Look, I love a lot of shit on mine; it’s how I’m designed.

Even though I’m pretty particular and will always choose grilling a burger at home over getting a burger out, I’ve always had a special place in my heart for Big Macs, obviously the inspiration behind this dip.

Big Mac Dip

I can remember being 17-years-old, and although I absolutely loved Big Macs, sometimes I would feel so guilty eating them (I thought I was a little too chunky at the time) that I would negotiate with myself and NOT get the fries, thinking that would make it ok.

Of course, then I wouldn’t get to actually enjoy it because I didn’t have the fries to dip in my very favorite mixture of mayonnaise and ketchup.

That’s the whole package.

My 17-year-old self was such a moron.

Big Mac Dip

Have you noticed that as good as Burger King’s burgers have always been, the fries don’t quite measure up to McDonald’s? They just never have; McDonald’s seems to have locked that down.

This dip has all the taste of a Big Mac, in appetizer form. And it’s really easy to make.

You will notice I didn’t add pickles, but put them on top. You can do either, or both if you’re a pickle fanatic.

    What a fantastic idea! My hubby is a huge Big Mac lover too so I think he will be super excited. Are those just the tortilla scoopers you are using as a chip?
