Amazing Onion Dip

Onion dip is one of my favorite snacks at the many Holiday gatherings that happen this time of year. My bonus mom Donna (my dad’s wife) always puts out a big bowl of it whenever we all get together. I may or may not hover near that bowl until dinner because it is ridiculously addictive. She gave me her super simple recipe so that I could make that addictive onion dip right at home! I just added a couple of my own little twists.

The ingredients for this onion dip were super simple. The key to the big flavor was a clove of roasted garlic. I had already roasted a whole head of garlic for my Thanksgiving cooking so it was done already! I wrote a note in the recipe notes on how easy it is to roast garlic.

Then I just used my trusty hand mixer to whip everything together! I added in milk last because it was going to dictate the whole consistency of the onion dip. I didn't want it to be too thin or too thick so I poured it in slowly. That way I could make it the perfect consistency!

All I did then was spoon the dip into a pretty bowl and serve it with potato chips! Oh my goodness, it was creamy and addictive and exactly how I wanted it to be. With those crunchy, salty potato chips it was pure heaven. Crisp veggies like carrot sticks or celery also complement the onion dip so well. I can’t wait to make more for all of the Holiday gatherings coming up. Hope you all enjoy!

Recipe Notes

*to roast a head of garlic pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. Remove the flaky outer papers off of the garlic head and cut the top off to expose the cloves. Sprinkle a pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil on top. Wrap the garlic in foil and roast it for an hour. When it's done keep it wrapped up and use as needed! It will keep for over a week in the refrigerator to use in endless recipes.
