Baked Caramelized Onion Dip

My perfect meal would be a meal filled with appetizers. This caramelized onion dip is a perfect appetizer for a party. Serve it up with some matzah crackers or potato chips and everyone will be happy.


  • Prep Time : 25 min
  • Cook Time : 20-25 min
  • Ready Time : 45 min


4-6 People


  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1.5 tablespoons Butter
  • 1 large Onion, sliced thinly
  • 3 cloves Garlic, chopped
  • 3 teaspoons Thyme
  • 1 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Ground Pepper
  • 4 ounce Temp Tee Cream Cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Sour Cream
  • 2/3 cup Shredded Cheese (a mix of Fontina and Swiss)


Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Heat up the butter and olive oil in a saute pan.

Add in the sliced onions, garlic and the spices.

Cook on medium-low for around 20 minutes, until caramelized.

Once the onions have cooked down and caramelized, remove from heat.

In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese, shredded cheese, sour cream and onion mixture.

Transfer to small baking dish or ramekins.

Bake in oven for around 20-25 minutes.

Remove from oven carefully and serve hot with crackers or chips.

  1. Nice for any get together! I’m thinking even Superbowl, US Open, etc etc. I imagine you can make this in advance and then pop in the oven, right?
