This homemade french onion dip is easy to make and tastes way better than any store bought stuff!

Game day food will be in full force this week!!  Starting with this homemade french onion dip!  This dip really and truly is super easy to make and tastes so much better than the store bought stuff.  Plus you can pronounce all the ingredients!!

I have several options for some great super bowl food in my appetizers section.  But what I really like to create are different snacking platters.  Before my blogging days it was always the standard vegetable tray and there is nothing wrong with a good vegetable tray but I discovered there are so many other options like a bruschetta bar or all the different cheese boards, dessert trays, charcuterie boards, and the list goes on.  They are so much fun to create and there is something for everyone!

This homemade french onion dip tastes much better than the store bought kind and is super simple to make!

Ok, guys are any of you having crazy weather this winter??  This has been the weirdest winter ever.  I’m really not complaining because our winter has been incredibly mild (hello 65+ degree days!) but I am a little concerned what we may be in for this summer!!  But winter did decide to show up yesterday and gave us a little snow to play in.  School was canceled and they were able to go out and play in the snow before it melts.

The only part I don’t care for on these days is the huge mess it makes in my laundry room/mud room.  It’s wet with melting snow and full of mud, UGH!   It doesn’t help that it’s on the small side so trying to fit an army’s worth of outdoor gear in a two person sized laundry room doesn’t always make for the best outcome.  Oh well, I guess!

About this Homemade French Onion Dip:

  • This recipe is adapted from Pinch Of Yum.
  • This dip tastes best made in advance so the flavors can blend together.  It needs a minimum of 4 hours in the refrigerator but I like to make it the day before.
  • Store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
  • This is great served with potato chips (obvi) but also cut veggies and cubes of french bread.

Course: Appetizer
Author: Countryside Cravings
Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2-3 small to medium sized onions, chopped (looking for about 2 1/2- 3 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup real mayonnaise
  • garlic powder to taste (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a large skillet melt the butter over medium heat.  Add onions, salt, sugar, pepper, and cayenne pepper.  Cook stirring very frequently for about 5 minutes then reduce heat to low and cook for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.  The onions should be nicely browned and golden.  

  2. In a medium sized bowl combine the cream cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise.  Add browned onions and mix until well combined.  Taste and add in garlic powder if needed.  I added in 1/4 teaspoon.  Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving. 

Recipe Notes
  1. I like to make this the day before so the flavors have a chance to combine.  
  2. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. 
  3. Serve with potato chips, cut veggies, and cubes of french bread.

    I love that this recipe doesn’t use the powdered soup mix! I am always wary of those 🙁 This looks so savory and delicious. I’ll definitely be trying it out! (And your kids were lucky. School just got delayed for us).

      I don’t like to use those powdered mixes either! I honestly think they could have gone to school out here or at least delayed, but oh well they had some fun playing out in the snow! 🙂

    YUM! What a delicious dip to serve for a game day! We’ll definitely be enjoying this come the weekend!

    Also, our winter has been SO weird, too, and while it’s gotten cold enough (because it definitely didn’t last winter), I’m still concerned about what the summer weather will look like… Here’s to hoping it’s mild and not bad!
