Caramelized Onion & Bacon Dip

There is no better snack or party food than a good chip & dip. It is typically the first thing I gravitate towards when I’m at a party or first thing on my list to make when I am hosting a party. Caramelized onion dip is one of those dips that is a staple at any gathering at my house. I love serving it with crispy, salty ridged potato chips and it is always a hit!

This particular rendition of onion dip steps it up a notch adding crispy, smoky bacon to the mix. The bacon perfectly compliments the sweet, buttery caramelized onions and makes this classic dip all the more addicting. This dip is easy to make and completely worth the effort to make it from scratch. I am confident this will become one of your favorite appetizers to include at all your festivities!
