French Onion Sauce

French Onion Sauce

French Onion Sauce

French onion sauce, sour cream, mayonnaise, caramelized onions, garlic, chives and parsley is the party favorite sauce recipe. Creamy, full of medicinal plants and guarantees swallowing very quickly.

The French onion sauce is classic when it comes to party appetizers and plunge. When served with potato chips or vegetable sticks, it always disappears incredibly quickly. Some might say it's addictive. I say it was just delicious, creamy and delicious (and second worth to help).

As a child, my mother buys packaged nectarine soup mixes and mixes them in a bowl of sour cream and mayonnaise. It was easy, but it wasn't exactly fresh.

When I was in college, I used to buy French onion juice in the green tub from the dairy market (which was even worse). Ingredients include: Sugar, Hydrolyzed Soy and Corn Protein, Hydrolyzed Torula and Yeast Protein, Monosodium Glutamate, Food Starch-Modified, Gelatin, Sodium Hexametaphosphate, Carob Gum, Soy Lecithin, Potassium Sorbate, Guar Gum, Carrageenan Yellow 5 6.

Amanda. Not appetizing, huh? But good news! Dip the French onion into your home and when you taste how fresh, tasty and delicious it is, you will never get it from the store again.

French Onion Sauce Ingredients

There are only a handful of ingredients in this recipe and a few potential variations I've mentioned below:

Sour Cream: I always get the highest quality organic sour cream, but it's up to you.

Mayonnaise: My mother always used to add a little mayo to her French onion sauce recipe, so I do. And you can't beat homemade mayonnaise for freshness.

Caramelized Onions: Gold and sweet caramelized onions add a lot of flavor. Professional tip: You can do this ahead of time.

Recipe Types

While most of the ingredients are fairly standard, I understand that not everyone is a lover of mayonnaise. Therefore, mayonnaise may always leave or replace:

Greek Yogurt: Maintains the same consistency and adds a nice thong (with a probiotic bonus).

Cream Cheese: Makes dipping thicker, creamy and delicious.

Can you use dried herbs for fresh herbs? I do not suggest. They simply do not have the same strength of fresh chopped herbs flavor.

How to make French onion sauce

There are really only two steps to preparing the best French onion dipping juice: caramelize the onions and then put the remaining ingredients together. It's easy, but it takes some time to caramelize the onions, so just remember to plan for it. I have a separate recipe step by step to caramelize onions, step by step with a video tutorial. It's worth the hour.

Once your onions and garlic are caramelized and cooled, add them to a bowl with sour cream, mayonnaise, chives, parsley, salt and pepper. Stir everything together until creamy and serve immediately with potato chips and vegetable sticks or in the refrigerator.

The flavor of this dive intensifies and melts as long as they sit, so feel free to do it a day in advance for a party, pottery, barbecue or meeting. If leftovers can take up to a week in the refrigerator, but this is unlikely. Trust me!

Heat the butter or oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat and add the onions. Stir the onions for 2 minutes, then lower the temperature.

Continue stirring the onions every 2-3 minutes, allow them to caramelize to the base before re-mixing. If they begin to stick or brown, add a few tablespoons of water to dilute them and remove the pan.

Continue to cook onions for about 45 minutes or until cooked as desired. When the onions remain for a minute, add the chopped garlic and saute for a minute. For more help with onions, you can watch step-by-step how to follow caramelized onions in my recipes.

After the onions are caramelized, transfer to a small bowl and allow to cool.

After the onions have cooled, add sour cream, mayonnaise, chives, parsley, salt and pepper to a mixing bowl. Put everything together until they are creamy and decorate with additional plants.

16 reviews "French Onion Dip"

Hi, I started watching you, I have an autoimmune condition with ibs endometriosis and you said you have autoimmune conditions. I'm a little confused because some people tell me to stay away from my head, I don't even make peanut butter with gluten but I really didn't tweak my diet, but I need to do something I'm at that point. I'm making you a tomato-sour cream pumpkin, so can you tell me what you think of giving up the things I'm talking about?

Unfortunately, there is no one size for every diet. We all have our own specific triggers and sensitivities, so it's all about doing the job to find out what's best for your unique body (too much trial and error). :)

Yummmmoooo! This recipe reminds me that my mother and I started doing it years ago. I took this party to this day and brought home an empty bowl. You can't go wrong with the classic caramelized onion dip recipe. Just wonderful! Thanks for sharing :)

Microwave cooking and nutrition

Are microwaves bad for your health? Almost every American house has a microwave. The convenience they offer is undeniable. However, despite the widespread use of microwave ovens and excellent safety recordings, some people suspect that cooking microwaved food makes it somewhat less healthy by removing foods from eating. Do you cook with microwave? Are microwave foods healthy?

How does microwave cooking work?

Understanding how microwave ovens work can help clarify the answers to these general questions. Microwave ovens cook food similar to radio waves but using shorter energy waves. These waves are highly selective, mainly affecting water and other electrically asymmetrical molecules - one end is positively charged and the other is negatively charged. Microwave ovens cause these molecules to vibrate and rapidly generate thermal (heat) energy.

Are microwaves safe to cook?

Some foods, when they are exposed to heat, from a microwave oven or a normal oven, are broken down. Vitamin C is perhaps the most clear example. However, since microwave cooking times are shorter, cooking with microwave does a better job of preserving vitamin C and other nutrients that are decomposed when heated.

When going to the vegetables, cooking in water takes some of the nutritional values ??because the nutrients flow into the cooking water. For example, boiled broccoli loses glycosinolate, a sulfur-containing compound that can give vegetables the ability to fight against cancer (and many find it distinctive and some find it disgusting). Steaming vegetables - even steaming microwave - is it better? In some ways, yes. For example, steamed broccoli holds more glucosinolate than boiled or fried broccoli.

Are microwaves bad for your health?

The method of cooking, which keeps the nutrients in the best way, is a method that quickly heats, warms food and uses as little liquid as possible. The microwave meets these criteria. Using the microwave with a small amount of water evaporates food from the inside out. It contains more vitamins and minerals than almost all other cooking methods and shows that microwave foods can be really healthy.

But let's not get lost in details. Vegetables are good for you in any way you prepare, and most of us don't eat enough. Is the microwave oven good or bad? Microwave is an engineering wonder, a miracle of convenience - and sometimes advantageous in feeding.
