Triple Onion Dip 1

Um, so it’s July. It really snuck up on me – this year has been flying by! I feel like we should still be in April. Of course, since I haven’t been paying attention to the calendar, I’m completely unprepared for the Fourth. (You would think all of the red, white, and blue in stores would have tipped me off. Nope, I’m oblivious.) I didn’t make any plans. I didn’t think about taking any extra days off from work. It’s tomorrow, and I still have no idea what I’m going to do!

I do know one thing though: there will be dip.

French onion dip has been a favorite of mine ever since I was a little kid, and once I got the idea to make a from-scratch version I just couldn’t get it out of my head! I finally got around to making it this weekend, and am definitely making it again for tomorrow. This dip is great! It’s a little sweeter than my favorite Lipton soup packet dip, but its also less salty and more onion-y. I served it with fresh vegetables and reduced fat kettle chips for dipping.

For a less sweet version of this dip, reduce the cooking time for the onions. I also suggest making a big batch of the caramelized onions ahead of time and freeze them. That way, you’ll be prepared to make dip immediately whenever the urge strikes! (Just thaw the onions and follow start at step 2. For a vegetarian-friendly dip, look for Worcestershire that doesn’t contain anchovy.

  1. what it do?, from Hidden Hills, California I want to mention, I liked this article. However, it is weird how I ended up on your article. I searched for prices for a party bus on Google and ended up on your website. I must say I do like your site and will check back soon. But I need to find the limo I was originally looking for first. Have a lovely day! Au revoir.

  2. As a kid or an adult I still think that with chips onion dip is my favourite. Who says you can teach an old dog new tricks:D
