Roasted French Onion Dip
One taste of this and you will never buy it premade at the store ever again. It may seem like a lot of work to roast your own onions but trust me it is worth it. Plus I am having you roast more onions than you need so that you can put 2 bags of the prepared onions in the freezer so that you can make this dip 2 more times without roasting the onions. You could even use the onions to make a couple of bowls of French onion soup. Onions cooked this way will become a staple in your kitchen once you make them once, they are in mine.
- 4 medium - to large onions
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 16 oz. cream cheese
- 8 oz. cream cheese at room temperature
- 1 - 2 cloves of garlic minced
- 1½ teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- Cut onions up into bite size pieces. Heat the oil in a pan large enough to hold all of the onions that can go in the oven. Saute onions for about 5 minutes with the garlic.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place pan in oven covered. Stir about every half hour. It will take about 3 hours for the onions to caramelize. Remove from oven and let cool.
- When onions are cool combine the sour cream, cream cheese, salt and pepper. Stir in about ⅓ of the mixture. Taste to adjust seasonings.
- Divide the remaining onions in half. Put in freezer bags and freeze until next time you need to make dip.
