With the holidays fast approaching, I know I’m looking for easy, flavourful appetizers to feed a crowd. Caramelized onion dip could not be any simpler or perfect. Just gather 8 simple ingredients, and you will be on your way to some melt-in-your-mouth type of goodness right here!
The Perfect Flavour
So how do you achieve that perfect caramelized colour and flavour? The tip is to cook the onions low and slow to help them to develop that sweet, caramel-like flavour. But the secret ingredient that gives this dip its signature flavour is.... wait for it.... Worcestershire sauce! This is so unbelievably addicting, you’ll never buy store bought again.
So invite over all your friends, neighbours, and family. Cause this onion dip is the perfect, easy entertaining app whether you’re preparing for the holidays or a football game (yes, can't believe we are in football season already)!
You can also jazz it up by serving this onion dip alongside a fancy crudité spread or (my personal preference) your favourite go-to chips. Enjoy!
