Caramelized Onion Dip

I feel very fortunate that I grew up in a very tight knit family. I am the oldest of three, and some of my fondest memories involving being with my mom and my sisters, often times not really doing anything, just spending time together, usually gathered around some sort of food.

My grandmother and my mom are both big advocates of the snack – and my mom always has some, what she calls, “nibblies” on hand when we are all going to be at home. We will gather around the island in the kitchen and spend time snacking and talking about any variety of topics.

There’s not a one of us who doesn’t appreciate a good dip – and really, can you blame us? The perfect pairing of a crispy, salty chip and creamy dip… perfection.

My absolute favorite chip dip is Onion Dip, but most store bought onion dips contain a lot of funky incredients, including MSG to which some of my family members have a sensitivity. I first worked on making my own onion dip for one of Pickle’s family birthday parties years ago, and now I think I have the perfect recipe that is so easy and delicious.

The most time consuming part of this recipe is caramelizing the onions. For a foolproof strategy for this, I highly recommend this link from The Kitchn.

  1. Can you add some cream cheese, replacing some of the sour cream to make it thicker? Every time I make a dip with just sour cream, it ends up being too watery or runny – not creamy with a little more substance, like a dip that includes cream cheese.

    1. You could… Although, I have made this dip countless times and it’s never runny. I make it the day before and it really firms up in the fridge. But I love cheese of all kinds so by all means try it! Let me know how it goes!
