French Onion Dip ((the real deal folks))

French Onion Dip ((the real deal folks))

I am a dip glutton. Wow — that sounds horrid. What I mean is, I love, love, love dip!! But it has to be really good. And when it is REALLY good, I have a hard time walking away. Being a self proclaimed “dip glutton” means I know a really good dip when I taste one. And this, my friends, is a GOOD dip.

This French onion dip is what inspired all of those envelopes of dried dip mix. Don’t you ever wonder what “real” French onion dip tastes like?? Well, you may be surprised to learn it is super easy to make AND a THOUSAND times better than the dried powder mixes.

image

Here is the short list of ingredients:

  • 3 sliced sweet onions
  • 1 ½ T finely chopped thyme
  • ½ garlic herb seasoning blend ((or garlic powder))
  • 1 ½ T chopped chives
  • 1 ½ T creamy country style Dijon mustard
  • 1 ½ T Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ t sea salt & cracked black pepper to taste
  • 2 c sour cream
  • ½ c mayo

image

Start off with 3 medium sweet onions. Thinly slice the onions. ((I used a mandolin and it made the thinly slicing job a breeze and quite enjoyable!!))

image

While slicing, heat a tablespoon of cooking oil in a medium skillet.

image

Place the sliced onions in the hot skillet and turn the flame to low. Cover and continue cooking for 10 minutes.

image

Remove lid and add chopped thyme, stir and continue cooking ((another 10 minutes)). Take care to make sure the flame is turned low enough to prevent scorching.

image

Add the garlic herb blend ((stir)) and continue cooking for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, or until the onions have turned a lovely medium caramel color.

image

Turn off the flame and add chopped chives, stirring to combine.

image

Place the caramelized onions in a bowl & allow them to cool for 10 minutes.

image

Add mustard & Worcestershire sauce along with sea salt and cracked black pepper ((if you want some heat, add a few pinches of red pepper flakes as well)).

image

Add sour cream and mayo ((I used the light version of both)) & stir to combine.

image

Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Doesn’t it look perfect?? Just right for your holiday celebrations. ((you may need to make several batches if you know of any dip gluttons — just a little tip.))

French Onion Dip ((the real deal))
Yields 3
Sweet caramelized onions are the star of this dip, but fresh herbs and just the right amount of sour cream and mayo ((along with a few other ingredients)) make this classic dip the star of the party!
