So, for Super Bowl Sunday, I invited a couple of friends over to hang out, eat and craft. My friend Mary said she had the ingredients to make French Onion dip and was going to bring that among other items. If you spend any time perusing Mary's blog, you'll quickly see that she is an amazing cook / baker / food extraordinaire. She makes things I would never even consider attempting...so when she said she 'had the ingredients' to make french onion dip, I was really impressed and curious to know how she makes homemade french onion dip...turns out, she was referring to the Lipton's Onion Soup Dip recipe. Although she did substitute the sour cream with Greek yogurt which tasted great!
Fast forward a couple of days and as I'm reading through several of my 'regular' blogs, I come across this post for Homemade French Onion Dip...not sure if it's irony, luck or just good timing, but I was intrigued and pleasantly surprised to see how easy the homemade version turned out to be...so I decided to give it a shot...
Homemade French Onion Dip:
- 3 Tbls Onion Powder
- 24 oz. small curd cottage cheese
- 8 oz. softened cream cheese
Mix all 3 ingredients together either with a hand mixer or a hand-held immersion blender (I used the immersion blender) until mixture is smooth. Add more onion powder to taste. (I thought 3 Tbls was enough, however next time I might substitute one Tbls of onion powder for minced onions).
Serve with your favorite chips - mine are Wavy Lays...others may prefer Ruffles :)
*Update* I realize I never said if I liked it or not...I thought it was just as tasty as the lipton soup mix / sourcream version...I'd definitely make this again!
