Onion dip 1

Since it’s the beginning of the new year and everyone and their dog is on a diet, I thought I’d bring you a healthy recipe for this lovely Tuesday morning.


Onion dip 2

This cheese dip is the exact opposite of healthy. BUT it’s so delicious. It’s definitely a dip that is saved for family get-togethers… not a random Tuesday night when you’re bored and end up eating the whole thing. Holy cheese that would be intense.

But totally possible.

I got this recipe from Tad’s parents (my future in-laws! eek!) over Christmas.  It is the perfect appetizer and every bit as scrumptious as it sounds. Dig in!

Onion dip 3

Vidalia Onion Cheese Dip


3 large Vidalia onions (or any sweet onion), coarsely chopped
3 tablespoons unsalted butter.
1 cup mayonnaise
8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 teaspoon tabasco sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
Tortilla chips or crackers for serving


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sauté onions in butter for 6-8 minutes over medium high heat. Lightly sprinkle with salt when first added to skillet. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about one minute. Blend with mayonnaise, cheese, and Tabasco sauce. Pour into a buttered casserole dish and bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips or crackers. Enjoy!
