Caramelized Onion Dip

Have you ever ordered something at restaurant and absolutely loved it? When I first dove into the caramelized onion dip at a small restaurant in Oregon’s wine country 2 weeks ago I was in heaven. The sweet onion taste melted perfectly into a creamy dip, and was accompanied by a crisp crunch of celery. Oh My Stars!

If you love onions, this dip is for you! It’s very simple to put together, just a few ingredients, and you have an absolutely fabulous dip for yourself, or to share at a party! If you bring this to someone’s house to share, my money is on YOU getting compliments all night long!

This recipe is made extra simple if you already have caramelized onions on hand. Why would you already have caramelized onions on hand? Oh, I thought you’d never ask! At our house I make a huge batch of caramelized onions at a time. Then all week, we throw them in eggs, on sandwiches, pizza, tacos, you name it, it goes great with caramelized onions.

It’s quite simple to make them in large quantities instead of making them on the stove every time you need some! Here’s how- I chop 4 large sweet onions using my food processor. 4 large onions makes it worth it for me to haul that hulk out. Then I add the onions to my crock pot with about 2-3 tablespoons butter, or coconut oil. I cook them on low until the onions are medium brown. About 7 hours. I stir every so often to make sure nothing is burning on the bottom of the crock, since slow cookers tend to run a little too hot these days it seems. I made a video to show you how to do it as well!
