Calling all onion lovers.  This delicious and easy French Onion Dip with the sweetness of caramelized onions is the perfect chip dip for all your entertaining.  Serve with cut celery, cut carrots, sliced cucumbers, chips, crostini or pretzel sticks.  It is great for game-day and potlucks.


  • 1 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large Vidalia Onions or yellow onions finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 dashes Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh chives or Italian parsley


  1. Melt butter and heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the onions, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.  Cook over low heat stirring every 3-4 minutes until the onions are a rich brown color; approximately 30-40 minutes.  Allow to cool.
  2. In a medium bowl mix together the sour cream, mayonnaise, and Worcestershire Sauce.  Fold in the cooled onions.  Garnish with chopped fresh chives or chopped parsley.  Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.


  • Sweet Vidalia Onions are amazing in this recipe; however, I have used yellow and white onions with good results when that is what I have in my pantry.
  • The onions need to be slow-cooked and caramelized to a deep golden brown, as this gives the dip its delectable deep onion flavor.
  • Use the full-fat sour cream and mayonnaise because it gives a rich full flavor without fillers.  Look for a real egg-based mayo like Dukes. Boy, I love that brand.
  • You can substitute full-fat Greek yogurt for half the sour cream. 
  • Garnish with fresh herbs like chives or Italian parsley.
  • This French onion dip is even better after sitting overnight (in the refrigerator, of course).  Then, take it out and let it warm up for about 30 minutes.  Give it a good stir before serving.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to five days
