Homemade French onion dip is always tastier than store-bought. The secret is slowly caramelizing the onions with butter and fresh thyme for a nice depth of flavor. Our sour cream provides a cool, tangy base that blends perfectly with the flavorful herbs and onions for this delicious party-ready dip.Green Valley Creamery
2 Tbsp. Green Valley Creamery Lactose-Free Butter
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely grated
2 sprigs thyme
1 small shallot, finely chopped
1 cup Green Valley Creamery Lactose-Free Sour Cream
¼ cup finely chopped chives
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Heat butter in a small skillet over medium. Cook onion, garlic, and thyme, stirring occasionally, until onion is deep golden brown and very soft, about 25-30 minutes. Discard thyme and let cool.
In a medium bowl, mix caramelized onions, shallot, sour cream, chives, and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper. Let sit 30 minutes to let flavors meld. Serve with potato chips for dipping.
