Homemade French Onion Dip

On the Menu Tonight – French Onion Dip!

Since I’m making this for 4th of July, I wanted to make something more special than sour cream and French Onion Soup mix. This dip has lots of onion, some shallots, and garlic along with sour cream, cream cheese and some other ingredients.

It takes some time to get the onions, shallots, and garlic cooked down, so plan to spend some time watching the onions so they caramelize all over. Once they are done to your liking, cut the heat and let them cool.

While the onions cook, you can assemble the cold ingredients in a big bowl. Once the onions are cooled off, gently fold in the onion mixture and let it rest in the fridge at least an hour before serving.

I hope you’ll try my version of French Onion Dip.
