I made this recipe for my husband’s birthday last week. It was a trial of a new recipe, and the end result was delicious.
Blue Cheese and Caramelized Onion Dip
This recipe was taken from the Australian Women’s Weekly Italian cookbook. As usual, I didn’t have the right ingredients to hand, so I improvised.
20 grams (3/4 ounce) butter
1 large brown onion – diced roughly
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
90 grams (3 ounces) crumbled blue cheese
3/4 cup (180 grams) creme fraiche
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
1. Melt the butter and cook the onion until softened.
2. Add the brown sugar and the vinegar to the onion and continue to cook over a low heat until the onion begins to caramelize. This will take about 10 minutes.
3. Add the crumbled cheese and the creme fraiche and stir until the mixture is smooth.
4. Cool and refrigerate until well-chilled.
5. Stir in the parsley and serve with corn chips, crackers or your favorite savory biscuits.
1. I substituted thick Greek yoghurt (low fat) for the creme fraiche.
2. My onion was on the small side, so I reduced both the sugar and vinegar to 1 tablespoon each.
3. I added a little extra blue cheese since I adore the stuff.
Conclusion: This recipe is a keeper! Do you have a favorite dip recipe that you make on a regular basis?
