French Onion Dip

Nuvita Biscuits

The secret to making this classic, crowd-pleasing dip is letting the onions cook slowly at a low temperature until they’re soft, sweet and browned.


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 onions, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rings
  • 2 large shallots, sliced into 1/8-inch-thick rings
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Chives, finely chopped, for garnish
  • Potato chips, for serving


In a large saute pan, heat the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onions and saute, stirring occasionally, for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown and caramelized. Add the shallots and saute for 8 to 10 more minutes, until the onions and shallots are dark brown. Add the garlic and saute for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool for 5 minutes, then chop the onion mixture into 1/4-inch pieces. Set aside to cool to room temperature.

In a bowl, mix the sour cream, mayonnaise, celery salt, Worcestershire sauce and 1 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Fold in the onion mixture. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight. Garnish with chives and serve with potato chips.

    I bought chip dip and I just realized the expiry date is June 19th. It doesn’t seem to look any different from regular chip dip, do you think it would be alright if I ate it?

    I love French Onion Dip and have been experimenting with variations to change it up a bit, so I was wondering what your additions and spices were that you like? Thanks for answering and have a great night!
