A while ago I came across a recipe for a hot sweet onion dip that sounded interesting. I had never really paid much attention to onions as they are not usually the star of the show and I could not recall having ever tried a sweet onion. I normally just use the basic yellow onions in cooking and some red onions for salads. The other day I noticed that they had some vidalia onions that were labeled as sweet at the grocery store and I picked some up right away remembering this recipe. This dip was super simple to make; you just mix everything and bake until it is golden brown and bubbling. I really enjoyed the hot sweet onion dip! The baked onions were soft and tender and they actually were nice and sweet. The sweetness of the onions went really well with the rest of the creamy and savoury dip. I served the dip with some toasted bread for dipping and or spreading. I will definitely be making this again.
Hot Sweet Onion Dip
- 1 (4 ounce) package of cream cheese (softened)
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup parmigiano reggiano (grated)
- 1/2 cup sweet onion (chopped)
- pepper to taste
- Mix everything, place it in a baking dish and bake in a preheated 350F oven until the top is nice and browned, about 30-50 minutes.
Slow Cooker: Mix everything, place it in the slow cooker and cook until the cheese is nice and melted about 1-2 hours on high or 2-4 hours on low.
