Sweet onion, bacon, gooey cheese all mixed in sour cream and mayo. You can’t go wrong with that.
It’s rich, creamy, and flavorful and sure to be a hit at your next party. Cook the dip in a small cast iron skillet to get it extra golden and bubbly.
Serve with baguette, apple slices, or fritos. Try serving leftovers (if there are any!) over a baked potato.
Hot Caramelized Onion Dip with Bacon and Gruyere
- 4 bacon strips
- 2 sweet onions, halved and thinly sliced
- 1/4 teaspoon sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 tablespoon dry sherry
- 1/4 teaspoon tabasco
- 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
- 1 cup shredded Gruyere Cheese
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup mayo
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly, ground black pepper
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to cool. Crumble.
- Add onions, sugar, and salt to bacon fat in the skillet and cook over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring often, until onions turn a deep golden brown color. This can take as long as 20 minutes. If onions start to burn, turn heat down to medium-low.
- Add sherry and cook 1 minute. Stir in thyme and tabasco. Remove from heat.
- Mix together sour cream and mayo in a medium bowl. Add crumbled bacon, cheese, onion mixture, and black pepper. Mix together well and transfer to a 2-cup baking dish.
- Bake 20 minutes, or until bubbly and golden brown on top.
