Caramelized Onion Dip

Here it is.  Your first yummy dip to serve for the Super Bowl.  I was hoping to make a few things throughout the week and have some leftovers for Sunday but from the looks of what's left in the tupperware dish...this dip isn't going to make it that long.

That's a good sign though right?

When I was thinking about what kind of things to prepare as game day dishes, I automatically asked the guys.  Logical, right?  And instead of their usual "Don't care...make whatever you want!" response, I got a list a mile long.  And this was at the top.

I must say that this dip is a million times better than the stuff you buy at the grocery store.  It's so much creamier and the onions are to die for.  Who doesn't like caramelized onions?

Hopefully I have finally destroyed Kaston and Nick's love for the store bought stuff.

Caramelized Onion Dip...
Makes: About 2 cups   Prep Time: 10 minutes   Cook Time: 40-50 minutes   Total Time: 1 hour

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large yellow onions
  • 3/4 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 3 teaspoons onion powder
  • scant 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • several pieces of bacon (optional)

 1. Gather ingredients

2. Chop onions into tiny pieces.

3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet.

4. Dump in the onions.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  You are going to let them cook until they are a deep golden brown and caramelized.  About 40 minutes.  Stir occasionally.

5. While the onions are cooking, mix yogurt, sour cream, salt, and a little bit of the onion powder to a large bowl.  Continue adding onion powder to taste.

6. This part is optional, but if you want to throw in a couple pieces of bacon (like I did!) I say go for it.  Let cool on a paper towel and crumble.

7. Almost there!  When your onions look like the ones in the third picture you're ready!  Turn the burner off and let them cool to room temperature (or close to it anyways).


8. When the onions have cooled, mix them into the bowl with the crumbled bacon.  Stir to combine.

9. Transfer to your serving dish.

10. Serve with chips, pita, veggies or whatever else floats your boat!

11. Please note I was slapping away greedy paws (Kaston's) as these were being taken.

12. Enjoy!
