Hot Caramelized Onion Dip

Hot Caramelized Onion Dip

Friday, November 10th, 2017, Recipes

This hot, caramelized, onion dip is a great appetizer for anyone on a low-sucrose diet. Instead of using bread to scoop the cheesy mixture, substitute low-sucrose veggies, like endive leaves or celery.

Sucrose and starch tolerance vary. Individuals may need to modify the recipe to meet personal diet goals.


  • 5 slices bacon (no-sugar added)
  • 1 onion, halved and sliced (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 ½ cups shredded sharp cheddar, divided
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. In a large skillet, cook the bacon until crisp. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate, leaving the drippings in the pan.
  2. Reduce the heat to low and add the onions. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until onions are soft and caramelized (do not let them get crisp). This can take up to 20 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a large bowl, combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, vinegar, 1 cup of the shredded cheese, thyme, and cayenne pepper. Use a slotted spoon to scoop the onions from the pan into the bowl.
  4. Spread the dip in a small (2 cup) baking dish and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Bake 15 minutes. Crumble the bacon over top and serve.
