Onion Dip


Of course, everyone has had onion dip made with Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix. In the early 1950s a recipe for California Dip, combining this product with sour cream, became the rage. This classic dip is still popular today. Here is a recipe from scratch.  You could even use 1/2 fat cream cheese and sour cream if you are so inclined…

Onion Dip

6 Tbs unsalted butter
2 medium onions, diced
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 Tbs garlic powder
2 Tbs chives, chopped
Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste

In a small skillet, melt the butter and add the onions. Season with salt and pepper to taste and caramelized until the onions are a light golden brown, about 25 minutes. Remove the onions from the skillet. Add 1/2 the onions to a food processor with the cream cheese, sour cream, and garlic powder and process until smooth. Fold in the reason of the onions with the chives, season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve.
