Onion Dip is one of our favorites. It’s simple to make and can easily be made a day or three ahead of time for any occasion. It far surpasses the stuff you can buy from the store and it’s healthier too. I use low-fat Greek yogurt or sour cream so I don’t feel so bad about eating it. I make it for nearly every super bowl, cook-outs, and sometimes just for a delicious treat. Mr. Teacher and I have been known to polish off a whole bowl in a night. I think you’ll like it too.
- Dice your large onion up. It will look like a ton of onion, but it will cook down a lot.
- Place the onion in a saute pan with the oil over medium low heat.
- Allow the onion to slowly cook down and the sugars in the onions to caramelize. This will take about 30 minutes. Stir every few minutes or so and be patient.
- When they look like the picture below add in your thyme, garlic, and pepper. Let this cook for about a minute. This will bloom the spices and make them taste super fresh and yummy. The onions will be sticky, sweet, soft, and oh so delicious.
- Now remove the onion mixture from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes in a bowl or container you will be storing the dip in.
- Add your sour cream or Greek yogurt and your splash of Worcestershire. I like to use the low-fat versions of the yogurt and sour cream, but any will do.
- Stir to combine. Let everything sit in the refrigerator for a few hours. Taste before serving and add salt if needed and more pepper too if you like a kick. Garnish with crunchy fried onions if desired.
- Enjoy with your favorite chips.
