How to Make Vegan Cheeseburger Dip

Move over, big mac! There’s a funner and cruelty-free version of you in town! Haha. No, but seriously, this vegan cheeseburger dip tastes like a big mac, is way more fun to eat, and is extremely easy to prepare! It makes for a fabulous appetizer for any get-together, such as a potluck, cookout, or holiday, and will surely win over everyone’s tastebuds.

Vegan Cheeseburger Dip and Chips

Cheeseburger . . . Dip?

Listen, I know how weird a cheeseburger dip may sound, but I can assure you this dish is insanely delicious! First, I bake a layer of vegan cream cheese with shredded vegan cheeses and seasoned vegan ground beef until warm and bubbly. Then, I top it with classic burger toppings and a special sauce, which, by the way, tastes nearly identical to the big mac sauce!

Scooping Potato Chip into the Dip

I love serving this vegan cheeseburger dip with kettle potato chips, but pita chips also work great! This is an entertaining way to jazz up a get-together where people will probably bring classic (some may say boring) appetizers. It’s so cheesy, meaty, and delicious that I guarantee you even non-vegans will find themselves going back for more!

Plant-based Cheeseburger Dip

Customize the Dip

Feel free to change up the toppings! Think of your favorite burger… what toppings does it have? For example, suppose you love a bbq bacon cheeseburger with crispy onion rings. In that case, you can top the cheesy burger base with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, chopped bacon, bbq mayo, and crispy onions! How DELISH does that sound!?
