Ho Made Onion Dip

Ho Made Onion Dip

2 teaspoons olive oil
medium onion, sliced very thin
1 scallion minced
3 cloves of Garlic, minced
green onions (just the light green and white parts), thinly sliced, greens and whites separated 1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon sugar

3 slices crisp bacon

1 ¼ cups nonfat Greek style yogurt nonfat plain (2 5ozpkgs) 3 Tbs light mayonnaise
3/4 teaspoon onion powder
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon low sodium Worcestershire sauce

Suggested you double this and in the second one mix in ½ Cup Crumbled Blue cheese
Make dip:
In a large saute pan, heat the butter over medium-LOW heat. Add the onions and saute, sprinkle in paprika and sugar, stirring occasionally, for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown and caramelized. Add the shallots and saute for another 8 to 10 more minutes, until the onions and shallots are dark brown. Add the garlic and saute for additional 2 minutes.

NOTE: Watch the heat and stir, You want them to caramelize NOT BURN!

Remove from the heat and let cool for 5 minutes,
chop up slices of bacon and process with onions in blender for a couple of bursts just to smooth out.
Combine mixture with Greek-style yogurt, mayonnaise, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper and the onion greens.
Drop in the Worcestershire sauce and a pinch of sugar, stir well to incorporate.

Seal & Chill 24 to 48 hours to let flavors meld. THIS IS KEY!
This recipe for Onion Dip is fantastic. Whatever you do,
double the batch because one will not be enough!
This is also delicious as a spread on bread as a substitute for mayo or mustard with your favorite sandwich meat or poultry.
Also wonderful on a baked potato or steamed vegetables.

You will notice that there is not a bunch of pictures in this post. While most of these recipes I have carefully worked out, often it was without a camera handy.

An exception is this next one:
Hot Dog Mummies

I have never made these, however I have lost count of the “pigs in blankets” I have been forced to prepare and really this is not that much different!
