|There is deliciousness in frying an onion in butter!|
Fired onions are almost magic in my book and from an early age I have loved the smell and flavor of them. Even the gnarled black crusty look of them invokes thoughts of a charred sweetness to be found within.
Ingredients for Fried Onion and Chive Dip:
1/2 stick salted butter (4 T.)
1 large sweet onion peeled and sliced in 1/2" rings
3/4 t. kosher salt
1/4 t. ground black pepper
1 t. honey
3 cloves of garlic
1/4 C. dry vermouth or dry white wine
3/4 C. sour cream
2 ounces softened cream cheese
2 T. sliced finely fresh chives + more for garnish
1-2 dashes hot sauce
|Add onions, salt, and pepper to the clarified butter.|
|Fresh ingredients are the best ingredients.|
|This is the treasure that makes this dip recipe!|
Put the sour cream and cream cheese in a mixing bowl and mix with a wooden spoon or spatula until smooth. Finely chop the cooked onions and add them along with all of their pan juices. Stir on the chives and hot sauce.
|This is good with any chip or crisp vegetable. I have been sampling dippers!|
Serve with chips, crackers, or crisp vegetables. Yield almost 2 cups of dip.
