Caramelized Onion Party Dip
THM:S, Low-carb, Sugar free, Gluten/Egg/Nut free (allergy info for dip only) - This recipe makes one 9x13" pan of dip. If you're low-carbing it, serve this dip with veggies or baked low-carb tortillas cut into chips.
Serves: 12-15
  • 1 lb. of sweet onions, sliced
  • 2 T butter
  • 1 tsp. Truvia or ½ tsp. THM Super Sweet Blend
  • 1 tsp. Grandma's molasses (for flavor/color; adds a very trivial amount of carbs/serving)
  • Scant ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 8-oz. packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 T Worcestershire sauce (use an allergy friendly brand if necessary)
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg
  • ½ tsp. dill weed
  • 1 tsp. poppy seeds
  • 3 cups mozzarella cheese, divided
  1. In a non-stick skillet, cook the onions, butter, sweetener, molasses, and salt together until the onions are brownish and limp.
  2. Meanwhile, beat together the cream cheese, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, nutmeg, dill, and poppy seeds.
  3. In a greased 9x13" glass baking pan, spread the cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle with 2 cups of mozzarella cheese. Top with the caramelized onions and sprinkle the rest of the mozzarella cheese on top.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes or until it is warmed through and the cheese is melted. Serve warm with vegetables or baked low-carb tortillas cut into chips.
When I took this to a church get-together, I baked the dip at home for 20 minutes, put it in an insulated carrier with a hot pack, and then heated it up at church again. It got slightly overdone (the cheese on top was too crusty to be able to dip properly), but it was very good and all the reviews I got were positive. Even from my mother, who was incredibly nervous about my taking an experiment recipe as our contribution to a church potluck.
