I want to preface this with a warning that this Hot Cheeseburger Dip is not high cuisine.
What a way to start out a recipe, eh? Here's the thing: As I was sauteeing the onions and ground beef, it smelled exactly like White Castle. Funny, that such a basic pair of ingredients can have SUCH an association with them.
Anyway, this recipe started out as a request to make a cheese dip for a batch of pretzels I'd baked for Porter. I had some sharp cheddar, and I had some thawed ground beef - cheeseburger dip hit me as a fun, probably kind of trashy idea to try. Porter was skeptical about its viability - kind of a rare state, for him.
It whipped up quickly, and when all was said and done... he loved it! It's kind of a rare thing for me to see him surprised anymore, so it was a treat for me, too!
Oh, and the first thing he said after trying it? That it tasted like White Castle. He DID follow it up to say that it was a good thing, so know that we're going for nostalgia here. We created this as a dip for pretzels, but it would also make a great dip for tortilla chips at a party - just keep the dip warmed!
