Caramelized Onion Dip

My Gooseberry Patch Halloween Cookbook cooking extravaganza is complete. Here is my last recipe (well at least for this year), that I will be making from this amazing cookbook that I won from the folks over at Gooseberry Patch. I made some EXCELLENT things and some not so popular things too. (those recipes we will not be sharing with you). We only want to show you the best of the best.

Although this recipe was VERY VERY good, (it is a Hot Onion Dip) and it is very similar to my families all time favorite dip Pan-Fried Onion Dip, which is a Cold Dip. We took this hot dip to a Halloween party and it was gone in a matter of minutes, I think we still prefer our cold dip better. But this dip was very very tasty, so if you decide to make either one, the Hot Onion Dip or the Cold Onion Dip, they both are delicious.

Caramelized Onion Dip

2 tbsp butter
3 onions, thinly sliced
8 oz cream cheese, softened
8 oz pkg Swiss Cheese, shredded
1 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
sweet potato chips

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add sliced onions. Cook, stirring often, 30 to 40 minutes, or until onions are caramel colored.

Combine onions, cream cheese, and next 3 ingredients, stirring well. Spoon dip into a lightly greased 2-quart casserole dish. Bake, uncovered, at 375 for 30 minutes, or until golden and bubbly. Serve with sweet potato chips.

Note: Dip can be prepared a day ahead, but do not bake. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake, uncovered at 375 for 45 minutes, or until golden and bubbly.

  1. I adore caramelized onions - can eat them all by their lovely lonesome. I am saving this recipe and definitely trying it asap!

  2. Forever, I have only made(and eaten) the onion dip where you add the dry onion soup mix to the sour cream(which I love), but this dip is kicked up about 10 notches! I must try it!

  3. My kids are HUGE fans of french onion dip. My guess is they are going to be fighting their dad for this one. Over from Beautiful Mess!

  4. This sounds like a must make. I love caramelized onions. Thanks for sharing this.
