Here's a new take on a classic appetizer. Look for sturdy sweet potato chips for scooping up this mega-cheesy family favorite.


Serves 6 to 8

Recipe from

Gooseberry Patch


2 tablespoons butter
3 onions, thinky sliced
1 (8-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 (8-oz.) pkg. Swiss cheese, shredded
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
sweet potato chips


Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add sliced onions. Cook, stirring often, 30 to 40 minutes, or until onions are caramel colored.

Combine onions, cream cheese, and next 3 ingredients, stirring well. Spoon dip into a lightly greased 1 1/2- to 2-quart casserole dish. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 30 minutes, or until golden and bubbly. Serve with sweet potato chips. Makes 4 cups.


Dip can be prepared a day ahead, but do not bake. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 45 minutes, or until golden and bubbly.
