"This is the first thing to be eaten at every party, and it's sinfully easy! If you are not a big onion fan, don't be afraid. Onion is not the dominant flavor of the dish, and it adds just the right touch. Serve with crackers or cocktail toast." — TRACIES

This dip was wonderful. Based on other reviews I changed the following; sauteed my onions first, added a sprinkling of red pepper flakes and used a 5 cheese blend (parmesean, asiago, romano, mozzarella and provolone..kraft makes this already shredded). I halved the recipe as I only had a few people over. They raved about it and of course wanted the recipe. I served the dip with vegetables and crackers. I also thought it would be fun to put the dip in a bread bowl. Will probably do that next time. Thanks for a fast,easy recipe!
I actually found this to be bland. I prefer the version of this dip with the Knorr's veggie soup mix. I usually agree with the high rated recipes but not quite this time. :(
This is a really great dip. I used 2 pkgs of plain cream cheese and 1 pkg of onion & chives. Easy to make and almost any cracker works with this! My ONLY minor complaint, it looks somewhat greasy. Next time, I'll serve in a hollow bread bowl to soak that up so no one gets turned off by it. Still, the taste is great!
PHENOMENAL! I cut the recipe to 1/3 (it was served as a late-night snack) and followed the measurements exactly. I put my chopped onion in the food processor and basically pulverized it. I then sauteed it in 1T of melted butter, and lightly salted the onion as it sauteed. Then, since this was a last-minute idea, I ADDED COLD CREAM CHEESE to the onions in the warm pan, and stirred in all the remaining ingredients (the parm was last) over medium low heat until it was smooth. I then baked it, and garnished it with chives. It was served with Sea Salt Bagel Chips from Trader Joe's, and was a hit! This recipe was so, so easy, and so, so delicious. Five stars, any day. This is being added to my personal recipes tonight! Thanks for sharing this one. :)
I changed the recipe a little. I used 1 8oz brick cream cheese, 1/2 cup mayo, 1 large onion, and 1 cup parmesan cheese. I served it for Book club and we ate the whole thing! It was delicious!
The other night, I had an "onion souffle" dip that a friend made. I emailed her to get the recipe but didn't hear back from her and wanted to make it tonight. I was sure it had onions, cream cheese, and mayonnaise in it along with parmesan or romano cheese. I looked for recipes with those ingredients, and this looked perfect. I reduced the ingredients (only 4 of us eating it) and was very happy with it. I think I would prefer to saute the onions before baking it next time. I'll have to try and see. But it was a hit, even with my son, who HATES onions! (I didn't tell him onions were in it, either.)
This was fast, easy, and very good. I will definitely make this again.
This was good and several people at the party said so. I won't give it "5 stars" because I reserve that for fantastic recipes. I will make this again, though, because it seemed to appeal to a large number of people. To my taste, it is a bit on the plain side. Also, it tastes best when warm and seems to cool off fast once out of the oven. Maybe try a mini crockpot next time?
Thanks for a great recipe! I baked it in individual ramekins (I had to broil it a minute at the end to brown it), and it was a great hit! Great with melba toast.
