This homemade French Onion Dip is created with a rich blend of cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, butter, garlic, and beautifully caramelized onions that are naturally sweetened until golden brown. A favorite for any party or game day gathering, this creamy dip surpasses any store-bought version in both flavor and deliciousness, ensuring it's a hit with everyone.
Start by caramelizing the onions. Melt the butter in a medium-sized pan or skillet, then add the diced onions.
Cook the onions over medium-low heat for approximately 30-45 minutes, allowing them to caramelize slowly. At the very end of cooking, stir in the minced garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Next, add the sour cream, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, and black pepper and mix until well combined. Set aside.
Once the onions and garlic are at room temperature, add them to the cream mixture and stir to combine.
Garnish with freshly minced chives and serve with potato chips, carrot sticks, or celery if desired.
