Hot Onion Dip

Tracie Smothers Stephens

"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."

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, moz...

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. :(

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 ...

Wow! This was delicious. I served as an appetizer for Thanksgiving. Everyone was raving about it. I'll be making this again and again and again. Used 2 blocks of cream cheese, and 1 medium ...

This is the best dip on the planet. I am asked to make this everywhere I go..Thanksgiving, Christmas for sure. One tip that is very important and makes a HUGE difference, make it a few days be...

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.
