This has been a real hit gatherings! I often make a double batch.
- 1 1⁄4 cups finely chopped yellow sweet onions (Maya, Vidalia, etc)
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄4 cup mayonnaise (Best Foods, Hellmann's, or Vegenaise)
- 1⁄4 cup plain yogurt or 1⁄4 cup sour cream
- 1⁄2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
- Tabasco sauce, to taste
- 1⁄8 teaspoon curry powder, to taste (optional, but oh so good!)
- 1⁄3 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1⁄8 teaspoon smoked spanish paprika or 1⁄8 teaspoon dried ancho chile powder or 1⁄8 teaspoon sweet paprika
- 1 tablespoon chopped green onion, for garnish
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a bowl, mix together the onions, garlic, mayonnaise, yogurt or sour cream, cheddar, and Tabasco (and curry powder, if using).
- Spread into a lightly pan sprayed small-ish baking dish.
- Top with Parmesan and sprinkle with paprika to taste. (Ground ancho chile powder can be substituted for the paprika, for a little more kick. I prefer the ancho.).
- Bake in preheated 350 degree F oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Garnish with chopped green onion (scallion).
- Serve hot or warm with crackers, bread, or raw veggie dippers.
- Makes about 6 servings. I usually make a double batch! :).

This dip is rich and filling and popular at parties. I like to put chopped jalapenos in it too. We have made a double batch in one larger dish with half having jalapenos and half without.
A coworker made this a while back and I have dreamt of it ever since. So, I was thrilled to find this. It was a hit. I did change a couple of things. I used Asiago instead of Parmesan and some cornstarch to stabilize it. I usually make a triple batch and used 1 TBSP of cornstarch. It worked like a charm. I also had to scoop the oil off the top (about a 1/2 cup!) I did not use curry either, but I did use smoked Spanish paprika and 10 dashes of Tabasco . Soo good!
I made this as written but stirred the Parmesan cheese into the dip instead of sprinkling it on top. I did add the curry powder and sprinkled with paprika. When I read the recipe it seemed to me there was a lot of onion compared to the creamy ingredients and I was right. I love onion dip but this is almost like a dish of baked onions in a cheese sauce. If I made it again I would double the mayo and sour cream and maybe chop the onions in the food processor. I also added Cajun seasoning after I tasted it to give it some zing. Thanks for sharing.
