French Onion Dip - A healthy version of a party favorite!

French Onion Dip

I love French onion dip! The flavor of caramelized onion compliments the tartness of sour cream and yogurt so perfectly.

But I don't love the ingredients in most mixes and flavoring packets.

This dip is a healtier version of a party favorite. And the best part is that it tastes amazing! It's sure to be a crowd-pleaser!


  1. 1 yellow onion
  2. 2 tbsp salted butter
  3. About 1/2 cup of broth/stock Note: chicken, beef, or vegetable stock or bone broth work here
  4. 1 cup of sour cream
  5. 1 cup of plain, full fat Greek yogurt
  6. 3 cloves of Confit Garlic, smashed in a mortar and pestle
  7. Salt to taste


  1. Slice onion into 2 inch strips (bite-size).
  2. Melt 2 tbsp butter in a sturdy bottomed pot over medium heat and add sliced onion.
  3. Cook, stirring occasionally to encourage the maillard reaction to brown the onion without burning.
  4. Deglaze the pot with broth in small increments. Here, you want to add enough broth/stock to release the caramelized bits from the bottom of the pan but not so much that the onions become soupy. This process will take about 45 minutes.
  5. After cooking, remove from the stove and let cool.
  6. Once fully cooled, add remaining ingredients, stir to combine, and serve immediately or refrigerate before serving.
