1 1/2 cups
ground white pepper
I've made this recipe 3 times so far and each time it's the first thing gone on the table! Here are a few things I do different. First it takes alot longer to caramelize the onions then it says, I did it low and slow for about 45 min. I used alot less mayo as I felt it overpowered a little (I used just 1/4 cup instead of half). I also upped the amount of onions to just about 2 cups and added a few dashes of worchestershire sauce. You really do have to let it sit overnight to really get the full effect but I'll never buy store dip again, its a little time consuming but VERY easy and the taste is out of this world
I followed this recipe EXACTLY. I was very disappointed. It tasted like mayonnaise, and nothing else. I made it for my husband, who said it was good, but I'm positive he was just being nice. I don't know. He hates mayo, and that's all I could taste in there.
AMAZING! I changed it up only a little bit. Instead of powdered garlic I sauteed minced garlic with the white onion. I added a sprinkle of garlic salt after chilled. YUM YUM YUM. I will never buy premade dip again.
I used cream cheese instead of mayo, was really good, this recipe is not for people who do not like onion very very very oniony. Also I added green onion for flavor and color.
This recipe was very easy and extremely flavorful. I followed it exactly, and got rave reviews at a picnic to which I brought it. It has a very natural onion flavor, with perfect seasoning balance, vey differant to that of the powder/sour cream taste I had been previously used to. I will not ever do that shortcut again, thanks to this recipe that is now in my permanent box! Thankyou!
great recipe. We use more sour cream and less mayo... serve with roasted fingerling potatoes. yum.... a hit
Nice Stolen Recipe from Alton Brown. Of course like any Artist one uses others ideas to learn but at least build upon it or give credit. I'm annoyed by all of these posers that copy recipes or say there's ketchup in Authentic Mexican Tacos and things of that nature, just so they can feel important. Makes it take forever for those of us to get legitimate recipes posted. Thanks.
I made this exactly according to the recipe, and found the mayonnaise a bit too prominent. Next time, I would halve the mayo and maybe use a little more onion, even. It went over pretty well at my party, though.
