It’s Sunday and in #SundaySupper land that means two things, a new theme with a fabulous list of new recipes to keep your pinterest board full and tailgating time!
For the second year in a row, we have brought back our tailgating theme for all your pre-football planning needs. In honor, I have brought you what I think is the essential snack for any tailgating party onion dip – specifically bacon and onion dip.
Although, here’s the thing – I’ve never gone tailgating… have you picked your jaw back up from the ground yet? Okay, good. So yes, I could go on and on about how I’m not a football fan, but I won’t. I have. Instead I’m going to tell you about my love affair with all things chips and dip and why you need to make this today. Yes today, it’s Sunday, don’t you have a football game to watch? 🙂
Who here grew up making onion dip out of onion soup mix and sour cream? I practically grew up on that. If there was an occasion that onion dip was present, my tush would be planted firmly right in from it. My guess it was the all the salt and MSG that drew me in, but either way I was the kid that took more dip than chip.
When I was in high school my BFF and I would have movie nights, we’d go to Blockbuster (remember that?) pick out a flick or two, run to the store and load up on our junk food. Can you guess what was always included? Yup, chips and dip. There wasn’t one gathering of the two of us without onion dip nearby.
Little did my undeveloped palate know that it was just as easy and so much tastier to make onion dip from scratch. It may take more time than dumping some powdered mix into sour cream, but the taste is out of this world.
- 6 slices bacon
- 1 large yellow onion
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 2 cups low-fat (2%) Greek Yogurt
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
- ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- ½ teaspoon cumin powder
- ¼ teaspoon mustard powder
- In a large skillet over medium heat cook the bacon until crisp. Remove and drain excess grease on a paper towel. Once cooled, finely chop.
- Remove all but 3 tablespoons of bacon grease from the pan.
- Thinly slice the onion from pole to pole end and add to the skillet. Cook on medium heat, stirring frequently, until the onions begin to soften, about 10 minutes. Lower the heat to medium-low and continue to cook for another 10 minutes.
- Sprinkle the sugar over the onions, stir and cook until the onions are soft and caramelized and a medium brown color. Stir occasionally to avoid burning any onions.
- In a medium bowl mix together the greek yogurt, chopped bacon, onions, salt, worcestershire sauce, black pepper, cumin and mustard powder. Taste and adjust salt and pepper if necessary.
- Serve immediately or transfer to an airtight container to refrigerate for up to 3 days.
