Okay Guys… so let me start by saying “ADDICTIVE”.
Cause seriously you’re not going to be able to stop eating this stuff.
And once you’ve tried this homemade version of onion dip…
You’ll never go back to the ready made store brands again.
Especially since a lot of them have unnecessary ingredients that don’t need a spot in my dip. 😁
How to caramelize the onions:
For this dip I like to chop the onions in small bite size pieces…
Then put them in a cast iron skillet with some butter & olive oil and let them do their thing.
You’ll need to add a little dried thyme & salt after they’ve cooked for a bit…
And at the end a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
The key to making the perfect caramelized onions is patience, patience & EVEN more patience.
They need to slow cook till they have that nice caramel color and delicious sweet nutty flavor.
I could easily just eat these by the spoonful. But I guess I need to save em for dip. 😉
What else will I need for this Onion Dip?
- Sour Cream
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- dried parsley
So you see no funky ingredients in this dip.
What to serve with this caramelized onion dip…..
It goes great with pretty much any kind of chopped veggies…
But my personal favorite’s are sliced cucumbers & grape tomatoes.
And of course it’s the ultimate potato chip dip for sure.
You could also top it on a baked potato or even dip your fries into it.
The possibilities are Endless…
