I’m not a shy person when it comes to public declaration of love. I don’t mean that in a Tom-Cruise-couch-jumping-on-Oprah kind of way, but maybe the better way to phrase this is that I’m not afraid to like what I like.
I first tried them on pizza last Fall and if I don’t say, it was love at first sight. Ever since, I’ve experimented with putting them in a few recipes – mashed sweet potatoes, pasta and even on top of skillet cornbread. To enjoy the full flavor of caramelized onions, pop them into a dip where they’ll really shine.
Alton Brown’s Onion Dip From Scratch

What You Need:
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 cups diced onions
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 cups sour cream
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
In a saute pan over medium heat add oil, heat and add onions and salt. Cook the onions until they are caramelized, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Mix the rest of the ingredients, and then add the cooled onions. Refrigerate and stir again before serving.
Serve with kettle-cooked potato chips or fresh vegetables.
