Warm Bacon Cheese Onion Dip
Wish you were here right now my kitchen smells awesome! Bacon and fried onions amazing!
It has been awhile since I made a new appetizer , what a whole week??
This is a warm comforting dip, you can not go wrong with bacon right?
Speaking of onions, I tried to grow them last year in my garden and only 3 small ones grew :(
I'm going to give it a shot again this year, I was looking at different seed companies last night trying to plan my order, getting an itchy green thumb!
It's Friday night date night and we are going to choose from 2 new restaurants, so there will be another restaurant review in the near future :)
Ummm what was my point? I think I am rambling now. Oh my point was I think we will have some of this appetizer before date night, a nice little surprise for the hubby after a long days work.
Oh AND tomorrow is Valentines day! Usually we do the same meal every Valentines. This year I'm going to switch it up a little and make a heavy appetizer (meat) I know will win over his heart & appetite :)
Alright enough rambling on to this wonderful Warm Bacon Cheese Onion Dip!
Here is what you will need:
1 Onion, finely chopped (I used a yellow onion)
1 Tablespoon butter
1/4 TSP Salt
1/4 TSP Pepper
1/4 TSP Thyme
1/2 TSP Red Wine
2 Tablespoons Extra Sharp White Cheddar Cheese (I used Cabot)
1/2 Cup Greek Yogurt, Plain
1/3 Cup Mayonnaise
4 Slices of Bacon
How to make it:
Melt your butter
Chop your onions, add that to the butter on the stovetop add your salt & pepper (is the song stuck in your head now too?).
Cook that for 10 minutes then add the thyme.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Continue to cook the onions for another 20 minutes on low.
Now add the wine, and cook another couple minutes.
Add your sour cream, yogurt and cheese mix this well.
Add a little extra shredded cheese to the top and pop this into the oven for 20 minutes @ 400
Serve with chips, bread, veggies - whatever tickles your fancy!
I know you will love it!
