Easy Baked Onion Dip
Why is this hot onion dip recipe so easy and convenient? It includes staple pantry ingredients that many of you should always have on hand. I always have a tub of grated Parmesan cheese, a container of mayonnaise (Duke's is my fave!), and at least one sweet onion in my kitchen. These are three items I have so many uses for, so typically keep them stocked.
Of course, there are those moments I thought I had a sweet onion in the basket on my counter only to find out I used it for that other recipe yesterday. I know you've been there, done that, too! 🙂
What to serve with Hot Onion Dip
With football season upon us, this is the perfect easy dip recipe to serve your tailgating friends. I always serve this baked onion dip with buttery Ritz crackers because they are my favorite. I also love the football designed crackers they stock on the shelves this time of year! But, you can also serve this dip with pretzels, veggies, bread cubes, whatever floats your boat!
Try variations of this onion dip by adding in other flavors like shredded cheddar, dill, chives, Cajun seasoning, etc. etc. I love it just as written below, in its simplest form, but sometimes it's fun to change it up a little!
This hot onion dip recipe can be doubled without changing the baking time, but use a bigger dish. I love to use a pretty pottery dish that can go straight from oven to table looking all nice!
