Caramelized onion dip is creamy, flavorful, and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. This easy appetizer is perfect for entertaining, on game day, or for a snack. 


Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 large (or 2 medium) sweet onion (Vidalia onions), diced
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 + 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

  2. Add Worcestershire sauce, making sure to scrape the bottom of the pan to release any brown bits. Let cool about 10-15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, combine sour cream, mayonnaise, salt, pepper, and cayenne. Stir to combine. Stir in cooled onions until incorporated.
  4. Serve onion dip at room temperature with chips and/or credité, or refrigerate for 2 hours and serve completely cool.
