Tune in below and listen to Marlene discuss her Pan Fried Onion Dip recipe.

Recipe: Pan Fried Onion Dip

  • 1 tsp. canola oil 
  • 3 cups roughly chopped or sliced onions 
  • 1 tsp. brown sugar 
  • 3 tbsp. light tub-style cream cheese 
  • 3 tbsp. light mayonnaise 
  • 1 cup light sour cream 
  • 1 tsp. dried minced onion 
  • 3/4 tsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce 
  • 1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1/4 tsp. salt 
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper  

Heat the oil in a medium non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Stir in the onions, lower the heat to medium, cover, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Stir in the brown sugar and continue to cook for another 7 to 10 minutes, stirring periodically, until onions are deep golden brown. Remove from heat.

In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese and mayonnaise. Add the sour cream and then the remaining ingredients, including the warm caramelized onions.

Serve immediately, or place dip into a serving dish, cover, and put in refrigerator for 30 minutes to meld flavors and serve as a cool dip.

Some notes: Make sure you onions are deep golden brown; mine could have used a little more time in the skillet.
