French onion dip, or F.O.D as Ryan calls it, is very popular in our home. Whenever I buy some at the grocery store it is usually gone in a couple of days. I have yet to catch him eating it out of the carton with a spoon, but I have my suspicions. As a result I am constantly picking up a carton while I’m at the store but a recent look at the ingredients got me wondering if I could possibly make it at home. It didn’t seem like it would be that hard but I had no idea how easy it would actually be. Now when Ryan finishes the last bite I just whip up some more.
I love onions as much as the next girl but I am not a huge fan of raw onion flavor. To me its the kind of flavor that just sticks with you all day. In an effort to avoid that I decided to caramelize the onions in this dip, which adds a slightly sweet onion flavor that tastes great while eating it but doesn’t linger too long.
You can serve this with some raw veggies or my personal favorite homemade potato chips. Enjoy!
