Calling all onion lovers.  This delicious and easy caramelized French Onion Dip is perfect for all your entertaining.  Serve with cut celery, cut carrots, sliced cucumbers, chips, crostini or pretzel sticks.


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


  1. Melt butter and heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium low 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. Mix together the sour cream and mayonnaise.  Fold in the cooled onions.  Top with chopped chives or chopped parsley.


  • 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 just love that brand.
  • This 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
