Cat and Sue Cook Together for Once, Volume 6: Caramelized Onion Dip, or How Sue Owes Cat an Apology

Sue and I cooked a LOT the weekend I was in Denver.  We spent most of Sunday in the kitchen, and all of Monday as well.  This dip was one of the things we planned for her birthday party/Labor day BBQ , and it came together pretty quickly and spontaneously, by which I mean: “it was 3:30 and people were starting to arrive, and we kind of forgot about this dip and Sue still needed to shower and get dressed, so I looked at the caramelized onions as though they had personally offended me, drank half a glass of wine, and threw a bunch of ingredients into a bowl while shouting at Sue to wear the pink dress”.

There are two reasons Sue owes me an apology for this dip: A, she didn’t trust me to just throw ingredients together and have it turn out well, and B, because I wanted to put mustard in the dip and she didn’t like that either, but it was delicious, so there.

Caramelized Onion Dip (I think, because it was awhile ago when I made it, and I didn’t use a recipe, and, well, the wine…)

2-3 big sweet or yellow onions, chopped

1 stick of butter (yeah, a whole stick, butter is what makes things taste good)

1 cup Greek yogurt

1 cup low-fat sour cream

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup Miracle Whip

1 tsp dry mustard

2 tbsp brown mustard/sweet mustard/garlic mustard/whatever fancy mustard you have in your fridge

1 tsp worcestershire sauce

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

salt and pepper

Put the onion and butter in a dutch oven or deep saucepan.  Saute on medium heat until the onions are golden brown, probably 45 minutes or so.  When the onions cool, put them in a bowl with all the other ingredients and mix well.

it would have looked like this, if we would have remembered to take pictures.
