Delicious Onion Dip at its best!!! If you have a hard time finding onion powder (not the same as onion salt), feel free to use crushed dehydrated onion flakes. Just add to taste. This dip is best at room temperature. Serve along with your favorite chips or in a bread bowl with bread pieces scattered around the bowl!
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 2 large yellow onions (about 1 1/2 lbs., finely chopped)
- 3⁄4 cup sour cream (low-fat is fine if you like)
- 3⁄4 cup Greek yogurt (low-fat is fine if you like)
- 3 teaspoons dehydrated onion powder (salt-free, natural) or 3 teaspoons onion powder, granulates (salt-free, natural)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt, very scant
- In a large thick-bottomed skillet, over medium heat, saute the chopped onions in the olive oil along with a couple pinches of salt.
- Stir occasionally with a wood or metal spatula, and cook until the onions are deeply golden, brown, and caramelized - roughly 40-50 minutes. Set aside, and let cool.
- In the meantime, whisk together the sour cream, yogurt, onion powder, and salt. The important thing is to add whatever onion powder you are using to taste. Add a bit at a time until it tastes really good.
- Set aside until the caramelized onions have cooled to room temperature.
- Stir in 2/3 of the caramelized onions, scoop into a serving bowl, and top with the remaining onions.
I made this to dip carrots and celery in for Thanksgiving. We loved it, especially because it tastes totally different than other Onion Dips.... What an excellent recipe!
I made this up for the Super Bowl and it went over very well. We loved the addition of the carmelized onions and this will be a staple in my house from now on whenever we want dip!
I made this for a Halloween party I went to last night and it was superb! I let it sit for the flavors to mix and it was so delicious. Served it up with chips and crackers. Everyone raved about it!
