Number of Servings: 16


    1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onion
    1/4 tsp Salt
    1 cup Sour Cream
    1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
    1 1/2 tsp Onion powder


Once you’re comfortable with making the dip, you can begin to experiment, adding in all sorts of fun. A few variations are:

* Horseradish onion dip: A tablespoon of the prepared stuff adds a nice kick.

* Garlic onion dip: Caramelize a couple of cloves along with the onions.

* Everything bagel onion dip: Buy the Everything But the Bagel seasoning from Trader Joe’s. Sprinkle in liberally.

* Bacon: Add a couple of tbsp of real bacon bits to the dip.


Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat and dice your onion. Scrape all of the onion bits into the pan and give them a healthy sprinkling of salt. Stir it all up to make sure everyone gets coated with butter, and leave it the eff alone for a bit. Once the onions are translucent, reduce the heat a bit and let them caramelize, resisting the temptation to stir more than every ten minutes or so.

Once you have them as dark as you like them, dump the onions and the rest of your ingredients into a bowl and stir, stir, stir. Ideally, store your dip in the fridge overnight to let the flavors meld, but you can also get to dipping immediately.
