Caramelized Onion Dip

The day before last week’s book club I Googled “make ahead appetizers” and the first article to pop up was “6 Make-Ahead Appetizers” at realsimple.com.  I’ve made many a Real Simple recipe that turned out great so I knew I was bound to find something easy and delicious there.  I was drawn to the caramelized onion dip because I’m a fan of caramelized onions…but really because this recipe looked dummy-proof.

This recipe doesn’t really require any work; it just takes time.  35 minutes total.  Don’t try to speed up the caramelization process, the onions will just burn.  Low and slow is the motto here.  I hope you like the smell of caramelized onions (I do) because your apartment will smell like them for two days.  The dipping vehicle makes a difference here, too.  I stumbled upon waffle cut Cape Cod kettle chips, which were even thicker than a normal kettle chip.  Thickness is key.  (That’s what she said – nailed it.)  Vegetable chips (like taro) would also be great with this.  I was concerned I made too much but the whole batch was gone by the end of book club.
