The BEST Hot Onion Dip
- 1 8 oz package of cream cheese softened (as a gal from Philly, I adore the one and only Philly Cream Cheese)
- 1 cup mayo
- 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- 1 medium Vidalia onion diced (about a heaping cup full)
- 1 tsp pepper
- Serve with pretzels slices of crusty bread, or crackers
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine all the above in a bowl and mix until smooth.
- Scrape into a baking dish. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until the top browns – the browner it gets the more flavorful it will be.
- Note: Don’t cook at higher than 375 degrees or you run the risk of separating your cheese which will make the dip greasy. For best results, don’t use low-fat anything. When making this Hot Onion Dip, you’ve got to live it up!
