Golden Onion & Thyme Dip

Article Image
Scott Phillips

Yield: Yields about 2-1/4 cups dip.

Served with pita chips, this dip is tasty and satisfying.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large Spanish or 2 large yellow onions (about 1 lb. total), finely diced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 6 Tbs. sour cream
  • 1 scant Tbs. fresh thyme leaves, chopped
  • Pinch cayenne

Preparation

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, season with 1/2 tsp. salt, and sauté, stirring often, until the onion softens completely and starts to brown, about 9 minutes. Transfer to a food processor and add the cream cheese, sour cream, thyme, and cayenne. Pulse until the mixture is well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Serve with pita chips.

    I THOUGHT THIS WAS OK. THE FLAVOR OF THE ONIONS COME THROUGH NICE AND MILD. HOWEVER LIKE THE OTHERS HAVE SAID THE RECIPE PRODUCES A LARGE AMOUNT OF DIP. I THINK I'M GOING TO ADD TO DRIED TOMATOES TO THIS THE NEXT TIME I MAKE IT.

    Served this at Christmas and it got rave reviews. We served it with Triscuit crackers instead of pita chips. This makes a lot of dip, just remember to bring a lot of crackers too (4 boxes).

    I have made this several times and it is quick to make and has a very nice flavor. I like to make it the day ahead so the flavors can blend.
