French Onion Dip
  • 2 tablespoon 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 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • chives, finely chopped, for garnish

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Garnish with chives and serve with potato chips.
