Recipe: Onion Dip

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…
