Best onion dip I ever had, store bought or homemade! Love! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I would probably try more sour cream, rather than equal parts mayo and sour cream. This is more like a condiment, than a dip. I think I'll use the rest for patty melts this weekend since there's so much left. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely fabulous! It will be the first thing to disappear at your party! Bring back the Hearty Boys!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I follow recipe's pretty loosely. This is a great recipe. I added roasted garlic, worcestershire, sherry and celery salt. Big hit. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this dip for Easter and everyone loved it! It's really easy and the only suggestion I had was to chop the onions instead of slice them as the recipe states. Then it is easier to scoop up with your potato chips! I also used sweet onions which gave it a great depth of flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for a football party, and my friends loved it!! My mom asked me to make it for her to take to a get together. Very easy and quick to make!! I will be making this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dip was very easy to make. Everyone loved it. Onions did take longer to cook than twenty minutes but well worth it. I also made it the night before. I'll make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Instead of using the Sage this called for I added dill to the sour cream and mayo mix. I also added minced garlic to my onions. I have to say that was a big hit with my friends. I do agree that this needs to set at least a couple of hours before serving so all the flavors can combine. The longer is set in the fridge the better it was. I used it with the roasted veggie crackers. This would also go well with the hawaiian bread. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This definitely needs to "marry" flavors in the fridge for a couple hours after mixing. It took me at least 40 minutes to caramelize the onions as directed, so make sure to allow extra time. I also added a splash of worcestershire sauce and some chives. Taste it first with the chip/cracker you are going to use before you adjust the seasonings, as an extra salty chip will make the dip seem too salty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
For an extra 20 minutes of your time, you will not be disappointed when making this recipe instead of throwing together the packaged onion dip mix. This recipe is so flavorful and creamy, it goes fast at get-togethers. item not reviewed by moderator and published
