Description

This dip is inspired by a classic - Lipton Onion Soup mix combined with sour cream. By making this dip completely from scratch - and with local products like Vermont Creamery crème fraîche and Bayley Hazen Blue - you can control the saltiness of the final product and tinker with it according to your tastes, adding more lemon juice, cheese or Worcestershire as desired.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons
unsalted butter
1  
sweet onion (large)
1 teaspoon
salt
1/4 teaspoon
black pepper
8 ounces
crème fraîche
1/4 cup
blue cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup
mayonnaise
1 tablespoon
lemon juice
1 teaspoon
Worcestershire sauce

Instructions

In a medium skillet, melt the butter; cook the onions, seasoning them with the salt and pepper, stirring often, until brown and caramelized, about 20 minutes.  Remove from the heat to cool.

In a medium bowl, combine the cooled onions with the crème fraîche, blue cheese, mayonnaise, lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce. Adjust seasoning and serve with fresh, crunchy vegetables or chips.
