Warm Caramelized Onion Dip

    Made to recipe except cooked the onions for much longer -- low and slow. I'd call this a spread, not a dip. Served with thin-sliced ciabbatta sticks. Excellent. I'm thinking about doing it again, trying the crunchy topping from one of CL's other onion recipes (Melt 1½tbs butter and add to ⅓c panko. Sprinkle evenly over onion mixture. Bake at 350° for 15min or until bubbly. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve hot.)

    I made half this recipe for a Chistmas Day appetizer. It is good but not a wow. Probably could use more tabasco and/or worcetershire sauce and parmesan.

    This recipe was pretty "blah". I doubled it and followed everything as written, but it pretty much just tasted like onions and cream cheese. It needs something else to spice it up.

    I would give this like 40 stars if I could. I made it for my in-laws Christmas dinner. I served it with whole wheat crackers, pretzel crackers, and sliced French bread. This was the only platter I had to refill the dip in for the whole dinner. I think it tastes amazing hot, but it doesn't turn into a pumpkin if served cold either (me & hubs munched on it later that night from the refrigerator, and it was still amazing). The sweet onions and the creamy cheeses are perfect! Would make again....and again....and again....and again!

    Awesome dip! Doesn't taste "light" at all. Its still good cold, but I like it best when its warm. We used crackers and bread cubes as dippers.

    Yum. A hit at the tree trimming party. Wonderful warm. Not so good cold, so always I rewarm the leftovers, while they last.

    This dip is delicious!!! Very creamy...does not taste like a light recipe at all! I'm adding it to my favorite recipe list! I served with warm bread slices.

    Very tasty! I used greek yogurt instead of sour cream, and fat free cream cheese. I also added a 10 oz package of frozen spinach that had been thoroughly drained and caramelized 2 tablespoons of garlic with the onions. This is a whole different class than the onion dip you buy in the store.

    This recipe is outstanding. I have it with whole wheat pita and I sprinkle a golden roasted flax and chia blend on top of it called fitflax (http://www.theflaxdiet.com) for added taste, texture and fiber. My nutitionist recommended FitFlax which is low carb/low cal, delicious and helps promote weight loss. I lost 50 pounds over the last 7 months. A great breakfast that's filling, low cal and delicious is Greek yogurt, berries and fitflax. I love this flax seed blend as it's got a toasted nutty taste that doesn't need to be ground and it's loaded with Omega 3's. At lunch or dinner, I'll add it to salads.

    I thought this was good, but there is room for improvement! It wasn't gooey/cheesy enough for me, so I might try a different, more meltable shredded cheese next time; maybe a mix of parmesan and mozzarella or gouda. I would increase it to 1/2 cup. Also, I mostly just tasted onion, cream cheese and Worcestershire, and it was a tad too sweet. Next time, garlic, and more salt!

    This dip is delicious, easy and healthy! I made it for a guilt free snack, but liked it so much that I made it for friends. They loved it and asked for the recipe. I didn't use thyme. I used mayo with olive oil instead of reduced fat and romano cheese instead of parm because that's what I had on hand. Tasted great!
