Caramelized Onion-Bacon Dip

Yield: 2 cups Prep 40 mins Chill 30 mins Start to Finish 1 hr 50 mins


  • 1 tablespoon  olive oil
  • 1 pound  onions, halved and thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces  cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup  sour cream
  • 6 strips thick-sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 teaspoons  red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon  fresh thyme leaves, plus sprigs for ganish
  • 1/4 teaspoon  salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon  ground pepper


1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring frequently, until golden, about 15 minutes. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool slightly, then coarsely chop.

2. In a medium bowl, stir together cream cheese and sour cream until smooth. Reserve 2 tablespoons bacon; stir remaining bacon, the onion, vinegar, thyme, salt and pepper into cream cheese mixture. Chill at least 30 minutes. (Can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2 days.) Sprinkle with reserved bacon and garnish with thyme sprigs, if desired. Makes 2 cups.
