This recipe for homemade Onion Dip is so easy you will wonder why you ever bothered to by those instant packages.
The recipe is adapted from an Alton Brown recipe.. a very basic recipe… my only adaptation .. and it is a big one considering the few ingredients… is that I used way more onion than he did… when I made it with his quantities it just didn’t have enough of an onion taste. I also salted it to taste which was less than his original recipe called for.
I used a milder onion.. sweet onions are the best for this.. but if you use a stronger onion start by using 1 ½ cups of diced onion (Alton’s original amount)… then you can always add more … it only takes 20 minutes to sauté more onion.
It is best to refrigerate this for at least 2 hours before serving.. over night is an even better idea.
This dip is delicious with veggies or chips…
