Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 yellow onions, sliced into 1/4 inch thick rings
  • 2 large shallots, sliced into 1/8 inch thick rings
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Cups sour cream
  • 1 Cup mayonnaise
  • 1 Teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Chives, finely chopped, for garnish
  • Potato chips, for serving

Directions

In a large sauté pan set over a medium-high heat, melt the butter. When the butter starts to sizzle, add the onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes, until golden-brown. Add the shallots and cook for 8-10 minutes, until they are dark brown. Add the garlic, and sauté for 2 more minutes. Remove pan from the heat, and let cool for 5 minutes. Chop the onion mixture into ¼ inch pieces. Set aside to cool to room temperature.

In a large bowl, mix together the sour cream, mayonnaise, celery salt, Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon ground black pepper. Fold in the onion mixture. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Garnish with chives and serve with potato chips.

French Cooking Tip

French cuisine is renowned for slow-cooked sauces, however a quick pan sauce will do just as well; after sautéing a piece of meat or fish, remove it from the pan, deglaze with brandy or wine, finish with a touch of butter or cream and voilà!
