Onion Dip

Having company is a great excuse to eat junk food! ... Well it's true.  I usually only eat junk food when there is some kind of celebration going on.  Having guests staying in your home is a celebration to me!  Today was the Carolina Panthers' second preseason game and Drew's dad was in the mood for some onion dip so I whipped some up for the game. Yum!

I used:

16 oz Sour cream
6 oz Greek yogurt (I used Fage 2%)
2 cups Onion, diced (I used a combination of yellow and red onions)
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/8 tsp Celery seed
Black pepper
Paprika, for garnish

It is so easy to make.  As most dips are. 

Heat a sauté pan over medium heat and sauté two cups of diced onions. I used a combination of yellow and red onions. I like to use some red onions to add a little color since it is a white dip.  Season generously with salt and cook until the onions are tender and have developed a little color.  It is up to you if you want your onions tender or crunchy.  If you prefer crunchier onions, just remove them from the heat before they turn translucent.

While the onions cook, combine sour cream, Greek yogurt, garlic powder, a sprinkle of black pepper, Worcestershire, and celery seed in a big bowl. Whisk until everything is evenly mixed.  Set aside. 

When the onions are done, let them cool for a few minutes then add them to the sour cream mixture and mix well.

Chill in the refrigerator to let the flavors really come together. 

When it's time to serve, pour some of the dip in your favorite serving bowl.  I used a bowl shaped like an onion!  Perfect, right?  Sprinkle the top with some paprika for a little extra color.

Serve with vegetables or chips.  I used salt and vinegar and Old Bay flavored chips.

Happy game day!
