Loaded Caramelized Onion Dip
This delicious dip will keep you coming back for the tangy, rich Greek yogurt, savory bacon, sweet caramelized onion and sharp cheddar cheese. Game on!
- 1 onion finely diced
- 1 teaspoon oil
- ⅔ cups plain Greek yogurt
- ⅓ cup mayonnaise
- ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- 2 slices bacon chopped
- ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
- 50 grams cheese grated (½ cup)
- freshly cracked black pepper to taste
First off, caramelize the onions. To do this, heat a pan over medium heat and add a teaspoon of oil and then the diced onion. Cook for about 6-8 minutes, undisturbed until there are brown crispy edges to most of the onions. Stir them, then add a bit of water and turn the heat down to medium low. Continue cooking until the water cooks away and then continue the process of stirring then adding water and cooking it away for about 20-25 minutes – or until the onions look nice and brown and caramelized to your preference.
Chop up a few slices of bacon and cook in a frying pan for a few minutes, until cooked to your liking. I like mine very crispy.
Let both the onion and the bacon cool while you assemble the rest of the dip. To do so, in a small mixing bowl add the yogurt and mayo and whisk together well. Add the Worcestershire and the spices and mix it well, again with the whisk.
Switch to a spatula and mix in the bacon, parsley and cheese. Mix well. Taste for seasoning. Add salt if you think it needs it. I think the salt from the bacon and cheese is enough. Add black pepper, I like a lot!
