French Onion Dip

Caramelized Onion Dip

French Onion Dip made from scratch will knock your socks off!


  • Dice the yellow onions and set aside.

  • Melt the butter in a fry pan over medium heat.

  • Add the onions, salt, pepper, onion powder and cayenne pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring. Then reduce the heat to medium low and cook for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. The onions should be sweet and golden. Remove from stove and allow to cool.

  • Place the cream cheese, sour cream and mayo in a bowl, mix until smooth (use microwave in 10 sec bursts if needed to assist)

  • Add the caramelised onions. Mix until just combined. Refrigerate at least 2 hours to allow flavours to develope, overnight is better!

  • Serve at room temperature, garnished with chopped chives if desired. Best served with crinkle cut plain potato chips!
