Onion Dip

Personal taste is something that's quite…personal. Sometimes the few tweaks you make to a recipe to adjust to your own palate might appeal to another. Such is the case for this riff on Alton Brown's delicious home-made onion dip.


  • 1 shallot, finely diced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ lb light sour cream (8 oz)
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp white pepper
  1. Add the olive oil and shallot to a saute pan over low heat. Cook until caramelized, adding teaspoons of water if necessary to prevent sticking.
  2. Cool the caramelized shallots completely.
  3. Add caramelized shallots and the dry ingredients to the sour cream and mix well.
  4. Wait 1 day before using. Mix well before each use.
