Directions See How It's Made
- Heat butter in a large pan over medium-high heat on the stove. Once butter has coated the bottom of the pan, add onions, salt and cayenne pepper. Onions may be piled high in the pan, but they'll cook down. Saute for 10 minutes, stirring often.
- Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for an additional 25 - 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are browned and caramelized.
- Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine sour cream, mayo and cream cheese. Whisk until smooth and then refrigerate.
- Once onions are caramelized, add mustard and vinegar to the pan. Continue to cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
- Once cool, add onions to the large bowl and mix thoroughly. Refrigerate overnight to allow flavors to combine.
- Serve at room temperature with your favorite veggies, chips, and/or crackers for dipping. ENJOY!
