Caramelized Onions

And right here is the difference between those store bought dips and this recipe.  This lucious pile of golden, caramelized, beautiful, sweet onions.  It is worth the half an hour it takes to get these onions ready to be made into the dip.

This makes 3 cups of dip but it stays good in the refrigerator for several days so it can be made ahead of time and enjoyed for quite a while.

  1. Yum! I've made a similar dip with sour cream but didn't add cream cheese. NOw I can't wait to try this version!

  2. This makes me laugh because my stomach churns at the thought of those premade dips from the grocery store even though I've never tried one. This, however, sounds AMAZING. And I happen to have some extra onions I should use up soon.

  3. Great variation on the usual French onion dip! Caramelized onions are so good!

  4. Oh YUMM!! That onion dip is one of my favorites - I am definitely trying this out soon!

  5. Oh my goodness, I bet that cream cheese added such a delicious creaminess to the dip. I love french onion dip, and would want to devour the whole batch myself!

  6. I love the cream cheese addition! I love caramelized onions and this sounds delicious.

  7. I'm an onion dip addict. I can't wait to try this for a snack this summer.
