With summer here, so are the parties. Whether it’s a backyard barbeque, family brunch or a nice evening meal with friends, I’m finding myself in the kitchen preparing and bringing a homemade dish. If I’m not asked to bring a dessert, than I’m asked to bring an appetizer. My good friend, who admits she is not a seasoned chef, introduced me to her go-to-appetizer, The Caramelized Onion Dip. It’s easy to prepare, ingredients are either ready in your kitchen or easy to pick up at the grocery store. And of course, it’s easy to eat!!!
If you are a foodie or just love to watch the Food Channel, then Ina Garten is a friend of yours. Her recipes are delicious and always a crowd pleaser. Her recipe for Caramelized Onion Dip is divine. This is not the Lipton Onion Soup Mix Dip you grew up with!
You start by slow frying the onions. Be patient! Watch them change from their raw white color to a sweet golden-brown. Then you just mix it with cream cheese, sour cream and mayonnaise. Serve with chips or veggies and watch your friends and family go nuts! Great warm or cold, and everyone will think you are the Top Chef!
