Classic French Onion Dip

I love onions! I use them for seasonings in most cooking, though my preference is and always has been sweet over the harsher yellow onions, and certainly Vidalia onions, when they are in season. I'll even eat those raw on burger and dogs or with beans.

I have a couple of favorite onion dips using Vidalias that are marvelous! One is made with onions and pepper jack cheese, topped with buttery crackers and bacon, and served hot. The other is a cold dip, but made with caramelized onions. This classic onion dip that most everybody knows, and loves, is actually pretty simple in its origins. An envelope of dry onion soup mix combined with a large carton of sour cream, done and done. And, it's pretty darn delicious in and of itself!

This recipe is an adaptation of that, adding in some extra dip favorites that make it even more rich and creamy, and substituting a few things in place of the packet, that preserves the integrity of the flavor we all love. As always, full recipe text with measurements and instructions, as well as a printable document, are a little bit further down the page. Just swipe or scroll past the step by step pictures below.

Recipe: Classic French Onion Dip

©From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish

Ingredients
  • 1 (8 ounce) block full fat cream cheese, cut into cubes, room temperature
  • 1 cup full fat sour cream
  • 1/2 cup real mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon beef base (like Better Than Bouillon) {affil link}, optional
  • 3 tablespoons dried onion
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley, optional
Instructions

Blend together the cream cheese, sour cream and mayonnaise until smooth. Stir in beef base, if using, and seasonings; mix well. Using a chip or cracker you intend to serve this with, taste and adjust seasonings if needed. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour. Let come to room temperature before serving.

Cook's Notes: May be successfully halved. Cream cheese may be softened in the microwave for about 20 seconds, depending on the wattage of your microwave. Likewise, refrigerated dip may be loosened up the same way.
