French Onion Dip from Judydawn
« on: December 20, 2009, 09:02:06 am »
Hi Lands, my consultant sent me this dip for French onion - haven't tried it and usually just make the one with the packet of french onion soup/cream cheese.

2 medium sized onions
2 tblspns butter
250g cream cheese
1 tspn vegetable stock concentrate

Chop onions on speed 7 for 3-5 seconds.
Add butter and cook 10 mins at 100o on speed 1.
Allow to cool.

Add cream cheese and stock concentrate and mix for 20 seconds on speed 4.
Serve garnished with chopped chives.

For the corn dip - I just mix a jar of sweetcorn relish with 250g cream cheese

Members hints
bigTcup - serves this dip warm.
Chelsea - had no veg stock concentrate so just dissolved a heaped tsp of chicken stock powder in 2 tsp of hot water and mixed that in. 
Brumington - has made using yogurt cheese instead of cream cheese.
Lozzylooloo - The only problem I have with the cream cheese based dips is how hard they are when I get them out of the fridge. I used a combination of cream cheese and sour cream on the next batch - same yum flavour, slightly softer texture.  Very happy.
Snappy - Instead of the veg stock (which I'm not much of a fan of) I used about 1 tbsp of FOSM.
Jess ums -  I added in a teaspoon of vinegar and it was YUM!

My pleasure-it was something I could do.

I made this for Christas day and it was perfect, beyond perfect.  But have made it a few times since and haven't quite made it as well.  Husband said after the 2nd attempt that perhaps there was too much stock concentrate in it so lowered it and the third wasn't as good either and I think I increased it back to the oignal amount for the next attempt and it was better again (tip: never listen to husband  ;))

  Got it, will remember that Roxy.  ;D ;D Glad someone tried it.  It is the only recipe I have posted without actually trying it first but felt that my consultant wouldn't have emailed it to me if it wasn't any good.

You could actually use dried onion flakes I think, for that traditional kick of onion...will give this one a go Cookie, looking at Christmas stuff again...(ALREADY!)

I was skeptical how this would taste.  Having only ever tried shop brought FO dip I thought there was no way this could taste right, but wanted to try it anyway!

Well yummo!  I will make this again.

Thanks

Help needed.  I would love to make this but don't like the veg.  stock concentrate.  What and how much of something else could I use?

perhaps JD used that instead of a vegetable stock cube?
