30 min


large onion diced 1
sour cream or Greek yogurt 1 1/2 cups
thyme 1 teaspoon
black pepper 1 teaspoon
garlic powder 1 teaspoon
splash of Worcestershire
salt to taste
crunchy fried onions as a garnish (optional)
olive oil 1 tablespoon

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.

  1. Dice your large onion up. It will look like a ton of onion, but it will cook down a lot.
  2. Place the onion in a saute pan with the oil over medium low heat. 
  3. 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.
  4. 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. 
  5. 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.
  6. 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. 
  7. 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. 
  8. Enjoy with your favorite chips.
