Sure it’s a dip, but it eats like a meal.

You. Just. Can’t. Stop.


Baked Onion Dip

This time of year, is my favorite time of year to cook with onions.  Vidalia Onions are the very best, in my opinion.  They are sweet, and flavorful and are perfect for so many things! When I saw a fellow food blogger share this dip a few weeks ago, I knew I had to make it!


My Father-in-Law LOVES onions, especially the Vidalia ones.   We always make Grilled French Vidalia Onions when they come for dinner in the summertime.  They have become a huge favorite.  Recently, I made Zwiebelkuchen, a German Onion Pie.  It’s similar to a quiche, and full of onions and bacon.  We have it for dinner, it’s perfect with a light salad.  While we are talking about our favorite ways to eat onions, how about Homemade Onion Strings?  If you can keep them around long enough, they make an amazing burger topping.  It’s time to add this new dip recipe to my favorite onion recipes.  This one, it’s a keeper.


I decided to make it on Father’s Day, and take it over to let my father in law do some taste testing.  This is him and I, a couple of summers ago, at Lake Okoboji.  He is an amazing man, and I am so fortunate to have a father in law like him.

You could serve this dip with veggies, or crackers, but we toasted up some French baguettes, and sliced them for dipping.
