French Onion Dip

This is a great dip to make if you like French Onion.  Quick and easy and everyone likes French Onion!  This dip is best made and allowed to sit in the fridge for at least an hour to meld the flavours.

1 large or 2 medium Onions sliced
250g package of Philly Cream Cheese, I use lite
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1/2 cup Light Sour Cream
Salt and Pepper to taste
Tblsp Butter

In a fry pan gently sauté the onions with butter.  This should take about 20 mins, you don't want to fry them to burnt.  If you add a 1/4 tspn of sugar this will help them to caramelise and take away the harsh onion flavour.  When done turn the onions onto paper towel to cool and drain off any excess fat.


In the bowl of your food processor put the cream cheese, mayo and sour cream, add the salt and pepper about a 1/4 tspn of each and process until smooth.

Turn into mixing bowl or plastic container.  Chop the cooled onions but don't mince them you want little chunks not big ones,  Mix the onions through the cheese mixture and refrigerate for at least one hour over night is better for the flavours to meld.

Serve with chips, biscuits or corn chips
