I made this dip for my son's birthday party and it was so delicious. How could it not be with all of those sweet golden onions and crumbled bacon!
Have you ever caramelized onions? This dip has three pounds of them in it. You might think that that sounds like an awful lot of onion for one dip, but when you slow cook them over low heat, the characteristic spicy bite of raw onion is replaced by mellow sweet deliciousness. You'll be surprised at how sweet they get! The salty bacon is the perfect accompaniment to the sweetness of the onions.
And the crispy fried shallots? Do you see those babies? They add the perfect texture to every scoop of dip. I loved them so much. As a matter of fact, I might even add more next time.
I do have one word of warning, this make a big bowl of dip! If you have any leftover, I suggest trying it as a burger or sandwich spread! Any way you eat it, I know you will love it. I'll be making this one again and again!
