Homemade Oven-Dried Onion Dip

It doesn’t require a special occasion to make this delicious dip.

Fresh Onion Dip

You know the onion dip that’s made with Lipton Onion Soup Mix?  I just love it.

It reminds me of the Holidays at my Grandmother’s house because she always had it as one of her appetizers.

Recently I was making a recipe called Brown Butter and Bacon Cheese Potato Cups, when some pieces of green onion fell off the top of the potato on to the baking sheet.

These twice-baked potatoes were in the oven just long enough to melt cheese so the pieces of onion laying on the baking sheet seemed to dry out rather than turn brown.

When I tasted these dried onions I couldn’t help but think how they reminded me of the ones in the Lipton Onion Soup Mix.

My curiosity got the best of me and after a few attempts at drying out chopped white onions in the oven, they finally turned out how I imagined they should be for a dip.

Oven Dried Onions

And there is no question what’s in the oven when these onions are drying out, there is  definitely an oniony aroma.

When mixed with sour cream and instant beef bouillon granules, this onion dip is so delicious and makes a wonderful appetizer dip for chips and crackers.

And it’s homemade which is even better.

This tasty dip needs to be made ahead of time because the onions sit in the oven for 4 hours.

But the good news it’s there’s no fuss, they just sit in the oven (after it’s turned off).

And the oven door has to stay shut the whole time.

This dip should last nicely in the refrigerator; for as long as the date noted as “best by” on the container of sour cream used for this recipe.

Let’s check out the ingredients….there are just 3!

After the oven heats up to 400 degrees F. wait about 10 minutes to make sure the oven is good and hot.

Then turn off the oven and immediately put the onions inside, and close the oven door as quickly as possible.

Turn on the oven light and let the onions sit in the oven without opening the door for 4 hours.

Dried Onion on Pan

Then the onions should be dried, and should come off the cooking sheet with a spatula.
