HOT CARAMELIZED ONION DIP WITH BACON AND GRUYERE
- Active Time : 30 Minutes
- Total Time : 50 Minutes
- Serves : 6
- 2 sweet onion halved and thinly sliced
- 1/4 teaspoon sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 tablespoon dry sherry
- 1/4 teaspoon tabasco
- 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
- 1 cup shredded Gruyère cheese
- 1/2 cup Old Home sour cream
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- fresh rosemary
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cook bacon in a small cast iron skillet. Remove to a paper towel lined plated to allow the bacon to cool. Crumble.
Add onions, sugar, and salt to bacon fat in the skillet and cook over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring often, until onions turn a deep golden brown color. This can take as long as 20 minutes. If onions start to burn, turn heat down to medium-low.
Add sherry and cook for approximately one minute. Stir in thyme and Tabasco. Remove from heat.
Mix together Old Home Sour Cream, and mayo in a medium bowl. Add crumbled bacon, cheese, onion mixture, and black pepper. Mix together well and transfer to a 2-cup baking dish. If wanted, add Parmesan cheese. Top with fresh rosemary.
Bake 20 minutes, or until bubbly sand golden brown on top.
Serve with a side of Old Home Sour Cream.
