Ok so. I’m just going to say this loud and clear: you WILL want this dip at your next family or friends get-together. You just will.
You WILL need to get over the idea of sauteeing the onions for 45-60 minutes. You just will. Because this step, this crucial step, is what sets this dip apart from the very simple French onion dip you have come to know and love. If you’re not willing to slowly caramelize these onions then step aside and do not make this dip, my friend.
I can tell you that my mouth is watering right now as I’m typing this, literally, I swear, not lying. I can’t wait to make this recipe again, and soon!
You can find the original recipe //here//.
? If your onions are caramelizing too fast, lower the heat. You don’t want to burn them.
? I did not think it was necessary to drag out my stand mixer for this task; so I used handheld electric beaters, and I just made sure I beat the cream cheese, sour cream, and mayo together for the full 5 minutes. It really did make a difference to beat these for that long. If your handheld beaters have a whisk attachment, even better, but I just made sure I beat everything up real good.
? I served this dip with chips like I usually do for onion dip – the saltier, the better, so I went with Ruffles. ?
? I also topped with chives because extra onion flavor but also pretty green and super yum!
