Hot Onion Souffle Dip


 
Ya know ... sometimes the simplest things are the best things.  Like sleeping in on a Saturday morning.  A leisurely breakfast.  A few minutes sitting in the sunshine.  These are some of life's simple pleasures for me.  Oh, and let's not forget this super-easy, super-tasty, 4-ingredient Hot Onion Souffle Dip!  Yep, for just 4 ingredients ...
... you get all the delicious hot creamy onion-y-ness of this crowd-pleasing dip.  It's always a hit.

This dip recipe is from a friend of mine from church.  And every time we have a get-together, it is just expected that she's going to make it.  No question.  She doesn't even bother to ask anyone any more what she should bring or make for an event ... 'cause everyone just says, "Make that onion stuff!"  

Well, after one bite of this 'onion stuff,' you'll know why.

Quite simply, this 'onion stuff' Onion Souffle Dip is cream cheese, Parmesan, a little mayonnaise, and a whole lot of onion mixed together ... and then baked up 'til it's golden on top and a puffed up a bit.


Once it's out of the oven, dive in and enjoy the creamy goodness!  As my friend says, Fritos are the best dipper for this onion dip.  But we also like whole-grain pretzel twists.

So, let's all add Hot Onion Souffle Dip to our list of life's simple pleasures, shall we?  You'll be glad you did. I promise.

Ingredients
  • 3 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese
  • 2 c. shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 c. mayonnaise
  • 2 1/2 c. finely chopped onion (about 3 medium onions)*

Directions
  1. Soften cream cheese. Mix all ingredients together until well combined.
  2. Place mixture in a baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees until lightly browned on top, about 45 to 50 minutes.
  3. Serve hot with corn chips, pretzels twists, or crackers. (We like it with Frito's Scoops corn chips or multi-grain pretzel twists the best!)
*NOTE - A 12 oz. package of frozen diced onions can be substituted; thaw prior to combining with the remaining ingredients.  The onion flavor is more pronounced with fresh chopped onion, but the dip is still very good with the frozen if you don't feel like chopping 3 onions.

Enjoy!

  9. Tracey,
    This looks so easy and delicious. I'm getting inspired to spread it on a pizza crust . . . . or maybe *in* a pizza crust . . . .
    Bookmarked!

  11. That's so funny, I thought it was MY picture for a minute there ;) Just posted a very similar recipe on the January 14th and then came across this one ... try it with SWEET onions, it takes it to a whole new level! I told Hubby we couldn't make it for Super Bowl because we had it 3 weekends in a row ... a little indulgent!

  12. Yummy! What pan did you use for your souffle? I doubt it if I won't be tasting the cream cheese while making this. Bright recipe for a dip!

  13. This looks delicious! Could you add in some chopped spring onions too? To give a bit of colour and onion variety.
