Baked Onion Dip

Updated: Dec 24, 2023


It is a busy time of year for all of us; so much to do...parties, school functions, friends and family popping in or inviting us over for an evening get-together. You want to have something yummy and perhaps not sweet to share with people, but who has the time or energy to put together stuffed mushrooms, baked brie or a cheese ball?


My mom's go-to appetizer is a baked onion dip. She shared the recipe with me some years ago and I have whipped it together for many parties and gatherings. There are quite a few people in our circle of friends that ask specifically for this when they invite us over! Oddly, I never made it for my grandchildren until this year. I suppose, since they are not very fond of onions or mayonaise, it just never occurred to me to try making it for them and just not telling them what is in it...Now they are asking for me to make it when we get together!


So here is this amazingly easy to make, comforting cheese dip recipe. Ready?


1 Cup finely chopped red or sweet onion

1 Cup firmly packed shredded cheese--any kind--really!

1 Cup real mayonaise


Mix all the ingredients together and smooth out into a square glass baking dish (or a glass pie plate). Bake at 300 degrees for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, until bubbly and browned on top. The glass dish will keep it warm for about an hour or until it is gone. Serve with an assortment of crackers and breadsticks. Yumm!



Oh...and if you happen to have any left over, it reheats very nicely!
