Why make this classic dip with dried onion soup mix when it’s almost as easy, and far more delicious, to make it from scratch? The boys much prefer it over the store bought package.
- ⅓ cup neutral oil, like canola or grape seed
- 1 medium onion, minced, about 1/2 cup
- Pinch salt
- ¼ teaspoon sugar
- 1 cup sour cream
- Place oil in an 8-inch skillet, and turn heat to medium-high. When it’s hot, a minute or two later, add onion, salt and sugar. Cook, shaking pan occasionally, until onion browns, about 10 minutes.
- Pour onion and oil into a fine strainer; reserve oil in refrigerator for another use. Stir onion into sour cream. If time allows, cover and refrigerate for 24 hours. Serve with potato chips or raw vegetables.
