Just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean it’s time to stop entertaining. Sometimes I feel like I see my family the most in November and December, but January-March is all about friends. There are so many different opportunities to entertain from professional championship games to sitting on the sidelines at a kid’s soccer game.

My new obsession for entertaining is this Bacon Cheeseburger Dip! It’s such a great combo of flavors and feels like a meal in a snack food. Here’s how I do it.
