Take everything you love about a big, juicy burger – and turn it into a dip! This creamy, mouth-watering appetizer is flavored with McCormick® Brown Gravy Mix and loaded with ground beef, ketchup, mustard, onions, Cheddar, tomatoes, and pickles. (We weren’t kidding when we said everything!) Bake until melty and serve with steak fries or breadsticks. It’s game time.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ½ cup ketchup

  • 1 (.87 ounce) package McCormick® Brown Gravy Mix
  • 1 (8 ounce) package whipped cream cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
  • ⅓ cup chopped tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons chopped pickles

Chef's Notes

Serve dip with steak fries, sesame breadsticks or sesame crackers.


  1. This recipe has a decent base but I would attempt to cook it differently if I try it again. I felt by putting all the ingredients together at the beginning made a weird consistency for the final product. Next time I d cook the meat and onions till browned and then drain. Then I d - Read more ...
  2. Made this for the first and followed the recipe. It came out great. Husband loved it.
  3. Fantastic and something different for a party besides onion dip. Also for low carbs company I cut up different colored bell peppers to be like scoops for the dip!
  4. The only change I would make is half the whipped cream cheese. Other than that get some crusty bread and dig in. Thanks McCormick
  5. The family really liked this one. Took it to the next level and made sliders. Perfect dip for get togethers or just watching a game. I did add 1/4 cup of water at the end when the cream cheese was melting it seemed a little dry. Worked out beautifully.
  6. Delicious! Tastes remarkably just like a cheeseburger. Forgot to buy pickles but that's ok I don't like em on my burgers anyway. Easy to make too. Served with slices of toasted French bread. I'd definitely bring this to a party where I'm sure folks would rave!
