This homemade potato chip dip recipe is easy but it does take time because you need to caramelize the onions. This is basically an onion chip dip but then we added a little bacon because bacon just makes everything better! So the bacon is optional if you don't have any on hand. The onions are a must.

Start by slicing the onions. You want to make sure they are sliced thin. A mandolin is the best kitchen tool for thin slicing vegetables. If you leave the onions sliced, they end up being pretty stringy, which is just not a good texture in a potato chip dip. So slice, and then finely dice the onions.

Next, cook the onions in butter on low heat and slowly until they reach a nice dark brown color. These onions weren't diced so the diced ones will look much smaller as they will diced and ready to go in the dip.  If you want a short cut – cook the onions in a slow cooker overnight the night before you want to make the chip dip. They'll be ready to go.

The hard part is done. Finally, just mix all the ingredients together and it's ready. We used more sour cream than mayo in the recipe because we prefer that, but adjust to your own tastes. The dip can be eaten right away, but it's so much better the longer it sits. So try and make it a day ahead. Just refrigerate until you're ready to eat it.

If you really want to go all out, serve your homemade chip dip with homemade potato chips. They are amazing!  Or serve with your favorite chip. These waffle chips from Cape Cod are amazing and work great for dipping. They are nice and sturdy so they hold a lot of dip.

Homemade Potato Chip Dip Recipe

1 1/2 cups thinly sliced and then diced yellow onions 6 strips of thick bacon 1 cup sour cream 1/4 cup mayo 1 teaspoon [Italian Seasonings Mix|http://growingupgabel.com/italian-salad-dressing-recipe/" target="_blank" title="Italian Salad Dressing Recipe]

Ingredients

  • Cook bacon in a large skillet until nice and crispy. Remove bacon from the pan leaving the drippings. Finely dice bacon and set aside.
  • Saute the onions in the same frying pan over a low heat until they are a deep golden brown. This will take at least an hour. I covered the onions to start and stirred occasionally to coat in the bacon grease. I left the cover off for most of the cooking.
  • Let the onions cool to room temperature.
  • Mix the sour cream, mayo and Italian seasonings together in a bowl. If you don't want to make the seasoning mix, just add in the spices to taste. Stir in the onions and bacon.
  • Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours before serving for best flavor.
  • Serve with Cape Cod® Potato Chips.

    So delicious! I make a very similar homemade French Onion Dip, but I have never added bacon! Now I must add bacon. Because bacon makes everything better, doesn’t it? Thanks for sharing and for linking up On the Edge!
