For those of you that LOVED Mmmm Monday, we welcome you to “Foodie Friday”! Every Friday we will feature a recipe from the wonderful Catherine Skipper of The Culinary Cafe!
Foodie Friday-Caramelized Onion Dip (Superbowl Food)
2 yellow onions
4 tbs. unsalted butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4-1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper (depends on how spicy you like it)
Salt & Pepper
4 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayo
First, slice the onions, then cut then in half-rounds. Heat the butter and oil in a large saute pan over med heat. Add in the onions, cayenne, salt, and pepper. Saute for about 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to med-low and continue cooking for about another 20-30 minutes until the onions are browned and sweet. They will shrink down quite a bit, so don’t freak out!
Back to business. Once the onions have cooked allow them to cool for a few minutes. Next add all of the other ingredients and the cooled onions to a food processor. Pulse until smooth and well combined. You can serve immediately or chill in fridge until guests arrive. Serve with bagel chips, crostini, or what ever brings a twinkle to your eye. Honestly, this stuff is so good you could smear it all over cardboard and serve it at your sister’s bridal shower!
