Pan Fried Onion Dip

My hubby and I went to a dinner party the other night and everyone was raving about this onion dip.  The hostess of the party hadn’t heard of it, otherwise she would have served it!  A guest at the party had the recipe and she emailed it to me the next day.

One of my favorite things is Lipton Onion Soup Mix mixed into sour cream with ruffled potato chips!  I grew up on it and I can eat it until I make myself sick!  This is the “up-to-date” version and it’s delicious.  Double the recipe when you make it because it won’t last long.

Pan Fried Onion Dip

2 large Yellow Onions sliced into 1/8″ rounds (about 3 cups)
4 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
1/4 teaspoon Cayenne
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/2 teaspoon Ground Pepper
4 ounces Cream Cheese at room temperature
1/2 cup Sour Cream
1/2 cup Mayonnaise (Best Foods)

1.  Heat butter and oil in a large saute’ pan on medium heat.
2.  Add onions, cayenne, salt, pepper and saute’ for 10 minutes.  Decrease heat to medium-low and cook stirring occasionally for about 20 minutes until onions are brown and carmelized.  Cool.
3.  With an electric mixer, mix cream cheese, mayonnaise and sour cream.
4.  Add onions and mix well.

Serve with chips at room temperature.
