Sweet Onion Dip

Sweet Onion Dip

This dip is a hit wherever I take it.  Even folks who don’t especially like onions (like my friend, Penny) enjoy this simple dip.  It freezes beautifully, which makes it an easy one to make ahead for Christmas and New Year’s parties.  As you can see from the picture, it also makes a great spread on crusty bread.

2 T. butter
3 sweet onions (Vidalia or candy)
8-oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
2 c. shredded Swiss cheese
1 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1 c. mayo

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add thinly-sliced onions. Cook, stirring often, until onions are caramel-colored (30-40 minutes).

Combine cheeses and mayo, stirring well. Put dip in lightly-greased baking dish and bake, uncovered, at 375 for 30 minutes or until golden and bubbly.

Dippers can be sturdy bread cubes, tortilla chips or fresh veggies.
