If you are like me you are a super fan of all things related to dip. Ranch dip, veggie dip french onion dip.
French onion dip!? Oh yes. Have you ever thought about what goes into an onion dip? Onions for one! But what else? Let me tell you how to make french onion dip with out the packet. Once you make this super simple recipe you will never empty a packet to make french onion dip again!
- 2 large yellow onions
- 3 tbsp butter
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp worcestershire sauce
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (start with 1/4 tsp then adjust to you taste preferences)
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 2 cups sour cream
- 1/2 cup mayo
Let’s Get Started!
Chop the 2 onions into a small dice.
Another option would to be to slice them paper thin for ribbon of onions.
Finely mince the 2 cloves of garlic or use a microplane grater to grate the garlic to a fine paste.
In a hot pan melt the butter and the olive oil.
Sauté the onions a golden brown.
Add the minced garlic after the onions are a beautiful golden color.
It is important to add the garlic after the onions are cooked because if you sauté the onions and the garlic together, the garlic has a tendency to burn. Burnt garlic is bitter and bitter is bad.
While the onion and garlic is cooling completely, mix the remaining ingredients.
Once the onions are cooled completely, add them to the sour cream mixture.
Make sure the onions are incorporated completely.
Allow the dip to chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour. The flavors will get HAPPY in that hour.
Serve it up!
Now that you have successfully made french onion dip with out the packet it is time to serve it. The Rubbermaid® Party Platter is a lightweight two-in-one food container designed for entertaining at home or taking to a social event such as a tail gate or play date! The smaller leak-proof Twist & Seal™ inner container holds the dip and nests snuggly into the base.
I like to serve a variety of veggies and crunchy dippers with the french onion dip. The party platter has a large divided sections to keep the dippers separated.
But there is more!
I know that my people will DEVOUR the party platter so I bring back ups. Back up chips, back up pretzels, back up carrots and back up dip. The Rubbermaid square containers come in graduated sizes that nest together. That means that no matter how deep the square container, it will fit in the next size and take up less space in the fridge or cabinet! I am LOVING this because I am FOREVER trying to keep my storage containers nice and neat. This girl needs all the help she can get in keeping the fridge and cabinets organized. Bonus points to Rubbermaid that they are 100% BPA free, Easy Find Lids™ are microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe.
But my favorite part is the lids snap together! No more searching for lids because they are ALL TOGETHER!
