Football season is upon us. Since we’re not quite ready to tailgate, I spent last Saturday evening watching football at home and
eating the whole bowl having a ladylike taste of this Caramelized French Onion Dip by Atlanta blogger Waiting on Martha. Paired with store-bought kettle-cooked chips, it’s just the sort of easy-yet-impressive-enough-for company (or the group tailgate) snack I adore.
Note: Because I really, really love onions, I did some tweaking to the original recipe. If you (or your SO) are not of similar mind, you may want to use one fewer onion.
What You Need:
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 4 Vidalia or other sweet yellow onions, sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 cup sour cream (use low-fat if you like)
- 1/4 cup chopped chives, plus more for garnish
- 1/2 tbsp Williams Sonoma Garlic & Herb French Fry Seasoning (I couldn’t find this, so I used Cajun Seasoning…I think you could use any savory seasoning mix)
- 1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp ground white pepper
- kettle cooked potato chips (I prefer Lay’s Reduced Fat Kettle Cooked chips)
What You Do:
- In a Dutch oven or heavy saucepan, heat the butter and olive oil until melted. Saute the onions and garlic until soft and brown, about 20-25 minutes.
- Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Once cool, chop up mixture and set aside.
- In the meantime, mix the sour cream, chives and all seasonings.
- Add caramelized onions and mix thoroughly.
- Refrigerate at least 30 minutes or overnight.
- Garnish with chives and serve with kettle cooked chips.
