I love how completely low rent and high class this dish is at the same time. This is one of Rob's favorites. It begins (as so many good things do) with caramelized onions.
For the caramelized onions:
2 big or three medium onions, preferably vidalia but not necessary
2 cloves of garlic
4 tablespoons olive oil
Pinches of: paprika, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons balsalmic vinegar
1 tablespoon brown sugar or maple syrup
1 shot of sesame oil
Uner low heat saute onions for about 10 minutes in the olive oil. Then add the other ingreidents. Saute for another 15 minutes until brown and caramelized. Stir ocassionally to avoid burning.
For the dip
1 8 oz block of cream cheese at room temperature
1/4 cup of sour cream
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
Mix all ingredients together. Eat. Ruffles potato chips work well. Sassa's soy chips also hit the spot.
