Caramelized Onion and Blue Cheese Dip

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. Perfect for serving at the Big Game!
