Here is another great dip to serve or take to a Super Bowl Party. French Onion Dip is a take on the classic onion dip you get at the grocery store that comes in the tub. But like my husband said, “this tastes fresher and less salty”. It so good and everyone will love it. The only downside about this recipe is it really needs to sit for a few hours in the fridge before you serve it so the flavors meld. But, if you don’t have time it is still delicious.
Now, if you have ever caramelized onions you know how intoxicating the smell is. It makes the whole house smell amazing and I can promise you that anyone that is in the house is going to come running to the kitchen asking what you are making. Tell them to wait because I promise this dip is worth the wait!
A couple notes on caramelizing onions-
1-Slice your onions about 1/8″-1/4″ thick. Too thin and they will burn
2-Keep your heat at medium low. You are not sautéing the onions you are caramelizing and this takes time, about 30-40 minutes to get a deep rich color.
Enjoy and send me your questions and thoughts. I love hearing from you guys!
