Savory Onion Dip
A couple of weekends ago, we had a few friends over to celebrate my birthday. I have had this recipe jotted down for quite some time and thought this get-together was a great opportunity to give it a try. I’m not even sure where I found this recipe so, if it’s yours, please let me know so that I can give credit where it is due.
I always remember eating Highland Dairy French Onion Dip with chips as a kid (ok, my family still eats it all the time). We would (still do) eat it with “Arma Bakery” breadsticks or Ruffles potato chips. This recipe is a “grown up” version of that dip that I remember from my childhood. We served the dip with pita chips and veggies but the favorite “dipper” was Ruffles brand Molten Hot Wing chips, they were amazing and the dip helped make the kick of the chips a little more mild.
It was a hit with my friends and I hope it will be with yours too!
Savory Onion Dip Recipe (printable version)
- 1 tsp. olive oil
- 3 cup chopped onion (about 2 medium)
- 1/4 cup low-fat sour cream, divided
- 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
- 2 Tbs.1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
- a dash Worcestershire sauce
- 1/8 tsp .salt
- 1/8 tsp. ground red pepper
2. Remove from heat; cool.
3. Combine sour cream, mayonnaise, cream cheese and remaining ingredients, and stir well to combine. Stir in cooled onion. Cover and refrigerate.
The more time you allow the dip to chill, the more developed the flavors will be. A couple of hours is great but overnight is best!
