French Onion Dip

Great as a quick weekend pantry clean out or for parties, this creamy herbaceous dip pairs great with fresh kettle chips!


  • 2T salted butter
  • 1T beef tallow or equivalent
  • 1/2T Kosher Salt
  • Black Pepper, ground, to taste
  • 1 Lg Yellow Onion, minced
  • 1 Md Shallot, minced
  • 5 dashes of Worcestershire Sauce
  • 3T Water
  • 2T Minced Dried Onion

  • 1t MSG
  • 16oz Sour Cream
  • 1 Block Cream Cheese, softened
  • 8oz Mayonnaise
  • 1 bunch Italian Parsley
  • Chives, sliced for garnish


  1. In a nonstick pan over medium heat, melt the butter and tallow.
  2. Add the onion and salt to the pan. Saute the minced onion until translucent, stirring often.

  6. Using a large bowl or stand mixer, whisk together the sour cream, cream cheese, and mayonnaise until thoroughly combined. (Use a silicone spatula to regularly scrape down the sides of the bowl.)

  8. Cling wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  9. To serve, place in an ornate glass bowl and top with sliced chives and parsley leaves, and enjoy with crunchy full flavored potato chips!
