You’ll kiss store-bought dip goodbye once you get a taste of this easy homemade French onion dip and spread recipe.
I’ve always loved French onion dip. It was a rare treat when I was growing up since dip doesn’t exactly top the practical grocery list in a family with 7 kids. Vegetables are healthier that way anyway, right?
I was taught well – dip doesn’t take precedence in my grocery budget either, much to my kids’ chagrin. I’ve always thought it perfect for a special treat but now I’ve opened up a whole new world of possibilities with this easy French Onion Dip. It’s budget friendly, has simple everyday ingredients, and we’ve found so many uses for it outside the chip and dip or veggie tray scene.
From burger and hot dog spread to baked potato topping, this French Onion spread is not only dip-worthy but belongs on basically everything. Think of it as your new go-to condiment.
