  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • 2 cups diced Onions
  • ¾ teaspoon Kosher Salt (divided)
  • 2 cloves Garlic (minced)
  • ¼ cup Water
  • 1 ½ cups Sour Cream
  • ¾ cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon ground Black Pepper


  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat and add diced onions and ¼ teaspoon Kosher salt. When onions begin to brown reduce the heat to medium-low and gently caramelize the onions for approximately 30 minutes, reducing the heat as needed to ensure they do not cook too fast. Add garlic in the final minutes and gently cook until fragrant.
  • When onions have caramelized, add ¼ cup of water into the skillet while scraping the bottom of the pan to deglaze. The burnt on fond should incorporate into the onions. When the water has evaporated, scrape the onions into a bowl.
  • Add all remaining ingredients to the bowl, including the remaining salt, and stir to combine.
  • The flavor will be best if the dip is covered and placed in the refrigerator overnight to allow the flavors to meld.
