Caramelized Onion Dip



French Onion Dip is one of my favorite dips.  I could eat it almost every day.  I like the full fat stuff too, not the Lite.  So it is very rare treat for me.  My husband and son on the other hand like the Lite stuff, and eat it with pretzels quite often.  A couple years ago I saw a recipe for caramelized onion dip that was warm and had a crispy bread crumb topping.  I made it a couple times, and it was very good.  But not quite what I was looking for.  So recently I decided to try again. 

This one is over the top delicious, in my opinion.  I took it to a party, and it got rave reviews by all.  It makes a lot, so good thing it is good the next couple days too!  This version is cold, which is how I think dip should be. 


Caramlized Onion Dip
Adapated from The Barefoot Contessa
Printable Recipe

3 large sweet onions (yellow or white)
3 Tbls butter
3 Tbls olive oil
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup sour cream
1 cup mayo

Slice all of the onions very thin.  Heat the butter and oil in a large pan over medium heat.  Add the onions, salt and pepper.  Saute for 10 minues.  Reduce heat to medium low, and continue cooking for about 20 minutes.  You want the onions to get soft and caramel in color.  You don't want them browned from too high of a temp.  Once cooked, allow to cool slightly. 

In bowl of an electric mixer combine cream cheese, sour cream and mayo.  Beat until smooth.  Add in the onions and mix until well combined.  Serve immediately or chill to serve later.  Works well with potato chips, and pita chips are my favorite dipper with this!

I'm all for the fat version as well. May as well fully indulge! This dip sounds fantastic. My breath might not smell too great after eating it, but it would be worth it. ;)

Oh, YUM! As soon as I saw the title I thought to myself, "I wonder if she made the Barefoot Contessa's dip?". It's my favorite, too. The flavors are absolutely incredible! It looks amazing, tastes amazing, IS amazing!

Yuuuuuuuum! Thanks for sharing this - and for differentiating between browned and caramelized onions. It kinda drives me nuts when people refer to browned onions as caramelized. I'm a little crazy, though.

Anyway, I can just imagine how delicious the sweet onions make this dip! :)

Yuuum! I love when you can make dips like this using all whole foods. I think that definitely makes it healthier! Great recipe. :)

So delicious. My hubs would love this one.

Crazy, I made almost the same dish Saturday to eat at a friends' house while watching football. It was very similar to this recipe and such a hit. I don't think I'll buy a bag of onion dip mix again!
