I have found several recipes online, but having never made this I was hoping someone who had made their own and knew that it came out well could give a recipe?
It is one of my husbands favorites and all the ones you buy from the store are not really all that great.
Thanks in advance!
I have always used Lipton's onion soup mix and sour cream (the real stuff).
Any onion soup mix (dry) will work. Knorr, Lipton, whatever.
Try to find real sour cream. Of the national brands here in the U.S., Daisy is standout as it only contains cultured cream. Most other "real" versions contain guar gum, carageenan, etc. Natural sure, but not what I'd call sour cream.
None of that stinkin' low fat stuff either.
Here's Alton Brown's recipe. Make it from scratch and skip all the added chemicals in those instant mixes.
Onion Dip from Scratch Recipe courtesy Alton Brown
Show: Good Eats
Episode: Dip Madness
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.
Thanks everyone! I never thought about those instant mixes...I'll have to give them a try to see how they taste. I would like to make it from scratch from time to time so I will give your recipe a try Butrflynet.
Thanks a lot!
