Cracked Up Cheesy Onion Dip


It’s been a looooong time since I made this as we were making it every weekend and both Hubby and I decided that it was a little too indulgent to make “just because it’s Saturday!” … but guess what? We were going to some friends for dinner AND we are still cleaning out the pantry and freezers (you should see  ALL the white space in the freezers!) and well, it’s just been kind of fun coming up with things to make with what we have on hand … 

Cheese? Yup, in the freezer! Onions, of course, and SWEET VIDALIA ones at that! Cream cheese? Yup, down to 2 now in the fridge. Mayo … yes, sadly, store bought.  Parmesan cheese? Wasn’t 100% certain but I have some! 

This is one of those dishes that people will be crowding around, giving a little jab of the elbow at times to try and get a scoop of the yumminess …

We’ve had friends who just pull up a barstool at the counter and just basically hover over the dish, inhaling it without a care in the world … 

Trust me, the one guy is Mr. Health Conscious and does not just eat stuff to nibble on … and I just can’t wait to see him do this again this evening!

It’s damn good … give it a try!

1 cup of mayo (used my homemade stuff)
1 8oz pkg cream cheese, room temp and cut into cubes for easier mashing
1 regular size SWEET VIDALIA onion, diced (or any other kind just as good)
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (the real stuff)
generous sprinkling of black pepper
generous sprinkling of dried parsley

Add all to a large bowl and mix well. Really mash the cream cheese as it will want to stay chunky.

Spray a shallow baking dish with nonstick spray and cook 45 minutes or so at 350 til nice, bubbly and brown. 

Serve with a thicker tortilla chip or hardy cracker (this is not the time for a buttery ritz type cracker!)

Seriously, I am always surprised at how fast this disappeared. You may want to DOUBLE the recipe so you don’t come back to an empty tray within minutes.

forward to sharing with some of these
