Onion Dip

Sometimes when I see what I've gotten from Fooducopia that I need to work into a recipe, it's a real head-scratcher. Other times, I have so many ideas for recipes, I don't know which one to try first.

The Onion Seasoning from J-Burger had a lot of potential. It's sort of like caramelized onions, but with some additional spices.

The pieces of onion were really small, so I knew it would be easy to blend into recipes. I wanted to mix it into meatloaf or meatball, but weather made me change my mind. Meatloaf is a winter dish. I wanted to slather it on top of a burger, but that's not exactly a recipe.

And then the idea seemed obvious - onion dip.

Besides serving this with potato chips, it also makes a great spread for sandwiches, a dip for fries, and a topping for baked potatoes or grilled meats or vegetables. What can't you put it on? I'd stay away from desserts.

Onion Dip

1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup J-Burger Onion Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pinch of garlic powder
2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives.

Combine all the ingredients and stir well. If you want a completely smooth dip, you can blend it with a stick blender or put it in your food processor or blender.

Taste for seasoning and add more salt, if desired.

Serve with chips.
