Homemade French Onion Dip

french onion dip
This is better than ANY french onion dip you will find at the supermarket! Serve it on your next cheese board with some cold cuts and bread and you'll have everyone asking you what's in the dip! I like to make it ahead, it keeps in the fridge for a few days (just keep the balsamic onions separate).

French Onion Dip 

  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 large brown onions, finely diced
  • 250g cream cheese block (room temperature)
  • 125g of sour cream
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt

Caramelised Balsamic Onion Topping

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 large red onions, sliced
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt

French Onion Dip

  1. Melt the butter in a medium sized pan on medium-low heat, add the onions and cook for 5-8 minutes until the onions are translucent and soft. Set aside to cool.
  2. Place the cooked onions, cream cheese, sour cream, garlic powder and salt in a small bowl. Mix until well combined and smooth.

Caramelised Balsamic Onion Topping

  1. In a small pot, heat the olive oil on the lowest heat. Add the onions, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar and salt.
  2. Cook for 10-15 minutes until the onions turn a glossy, deep, caramelised colour. If the onions begin to stick, add 1 tsp of water.
  3. Allow to cool and serve topped on the french onion dip.
