I’ve been loving french onion dip since I was in preschool. I remember, the teachers brought in a tub of it and we all ate some with crinkle chips and it was so good that I didn’t have it again until I was a teenager and I still remembered and loved that dip.
French onion dip is so addictive, especially when it’s homemade! Sure you can get the packets and make it from that, but the dip we are making today is completely from scratch. Caramelized onions, beef broth, lots of flavor with Worcestershire sauce, tangy sour cream and cream cheese, spices and herbs, it’s just so darn good.
And obviously a lot better for you, since you are the one controlling everything going into it.
If you’re a onion caramelizing beginner, I suggest checking out my How to Caramelize Onions post, where I go into detail on how to make beautiful, rich caramelized onions without burning them.
This dip is always a crowd pleaser, especially for game days, game nights, parties, and you can dip just about anything savory in it. Or spread it on toasted baguette slices and top it with bits of bacon. Mm!
Make this the night or day before a party for the best flavor possible (and less things to do on party day!) as the ingredients get a chance to mingle and the french onion dip flavor really intensifies. You won’t regret it!
