I did the french onion on the weekend and loved it.  I also made a sundried tomato (EDC) and it was pretty good too and so simple.

I have also made the sun dried tomato dip and agree with you on all counts - delicious and most definitely a repeat.  I currently have some in my freezer and hope that it is just as good once it has de-frosted.

Cuilidh, ask any question you feel you need to if it is going to help you. The more questions you ask the more confident you will become.   Try the corn relish dip, it is so simple but delicious and I like to serve any leftovers over a jacket baked potato.

I have finally made this dip!  Having visitors tomorrow so made 1/2 quantity of this one and as I'd just made a batch of caramelised onions, I mixed a handful of them with 125g cream cheese and a 1/2 tspn vegie stock concentrate.  It was lovely and I'm sure would have been tastier than just the sauteed onions.   

I do Amanda's version of caramelised onions which is - place in the TM bowl 4 sliced onions, 35 ml olive oil, 25g brown sugar, 25 ml balsamic vinegar.  Cook on 90o/30 mins/reverse/speed 1 then on varoma temp/15 mins/reverse/speed 1.

The rings have a tendency to get caught around the blades which means some of them don't get that lovely caramelised look so I would suggest cutting the onion in half then slicing in approximately 1/2cm wide slices.  If you have a batch in the fridge, when you have a BBQ just toss them on the hotplate to warm up.

Yum. I have been looking for a good caramelised onion recipe. Have made the French onion dip numerous times now with the sauteed  onions and it never fails to be a hit!

I made this in combo with another recipie of Sweet and Salty Onion Relish (just sauted 1 onion in half butter) and added the premade onion relish in when both had cooled.

VERDICT: Delish! Cant wait to make my next batch!

Thanks for bumping Hally. I'd miss this one but did think about looking for a recipe after seeing the FOSM recipe. This will do nicely.

I was looking for a quick dip to take to a BBQ this afternoon.  I literally had 15 minutes to spare before we walked out the door and a load of washing to hang.

Onions cooking = hang washing out.

Although I had to put in about 2 1/2 tsp of veg concentrate before I got a taste I liked.

We had 1/2 hour drive during which I put it on ice and again another 1/2 hour in the fridge when we got there before the nibbles came out.

It was DELICIOUS!!!

Made your French onion dip last night Judy and it was sensational. Big hit! Used the veggie stock and was very pleased with the outcome. It didn't last long and even the fussy niece's loved it!
