Alton Brown's Homemade Onion Dip


Recommended Posts

Giving credit where credit is due this is an Alton Brown recipe


Let me tell you, as far as onion dip goes I had only ever had the Lipton packs.  I laugh at those things now.  This stuff is FABULOUS!


3 tablespoons olive oil

1 pound onions, diced

1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided

1 and 1/2 cups sour cream

3/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon pepper, freshly ground


Place the oil, onions and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a 10-inch saute pan over medium heat.

Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool for 15 minutes.

Place the remaining ingredients and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt in a medium mixing bowl, add the cooled onions and stir to combine.

Refrigerate for at least 1 hour and stir again before serving.


This dip is even better when made a day ahead. Just make sure that you cover it well with plastic wrap because fats (like sour cream) take in flavors and aromas hanging around the refrigerator like crazy old grandmas collect leftover gift wrapping.
