Caramelized Onion Dip

This dip presented a problem. I had worked so hard on my self-control after the Molten Chocolate Cakes incident, and this dip had to come along and ruin it. Or rather, after squelching my craving for onion dip for over a week, thinking it would pass, I dashed over to the grocery store specifically for the ingredients for the dip, took the time to make it, ended up with about 2 cups of the stuff, and darn it, just couldn’t help myself.

This stuff is heaven with potato chips, or as a party dish served with some cut up carrots, peppers, or broccoli. Trust me, it won’t last long!

Caramelized Onion Dip

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cups thinly sliced onion
2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage leaves
3/4 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
Potato chips or bite-sized vegetables, for serving

Directions:

Heat oil in heavy medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onions and sage. Cover and cook until onions are deep golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes. Whisk together mayonnaise and sour cream in a medium bowl to blend. Once they are done cooking, stir in the caramelized onions, then salt and pepper. Cover dip and refrigerate until flavors blend, about 1 hour.

    I’m with your Husband, never really enjoyed onion dip much; I wonder how viable this would be to alter a bit into a spinach dip? THAT would move right to the top of my “to-make” list. Slightly stale chunks of sourdough and spinach dip is one of my many weaknesses.
