I love me some Alton Brown, and this dip was no exception. While his onion dip is still my all-time favorite dip, this is another delish app that earned 2 thumbs up.
Now, if you don't care for horseradish, I would steer clear of this recipe. I like horseradish just fine, but if I could have this dip every day (of which I did eat this every.single.day for 3 days), I'd be one happy diner.
|Adding the chopped bacon...|
- 8 slices bacon, chopped
- 2 medium onions, large diced
- 1-1/2 cups sour cream (reduced-fat is fine)
- 3/4 cup Hellmann's mayo (full fat here)
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp ground white pepper
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- 2 Tbsp jarred horseradish
- Stacy's Pita Chips (for dipping)
- In a cold saute pan, add the chopped bacon, turn onto medium heat and cook until the bacon is cooked all the way through (but before it gets extra crispy).
- Once the bacon is cooked, remove the bacon onto a paper towel-lined plate.
- In the same saute pan, cook the onions until soft in the bacon grease.
- While the onion is cooking, add and mix the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl.
- Add the cooked bacon and sauteed onions.
- Place the dip into the fridge to allow the flavors to marry. (This step is important- it tastes much better if you let the flavors meld for at least 2-3 hours.)
Yield: approx. 4 cups
