Bacon Dill French Onion Dip

Creamy bacony French onion dip with a bit of Sunflower Dill Pesto and some Bacon Salt so it tastes almost a little bit like a Bacon Cheeseburger, even though the dip is totally vegetarian. Another plus is it’s Greek yogurt based, so it’s high in protein and low in fat.

I have always had a fondness for French Onion Dip, but the store-bought ones don’t have much appeal to me anymore. I remember as a kid when the store-bought dips were made with real sour cream and they tasted really good back then, as I recall. But then again, my taste buds were different back then too, so it’s hard to tell.

Anyway, the other day I had a craving for some potato chips and a good French Onion dip. It was easy to find some good kettle chips, but not so easy to find a good dip. I decided I’d just make my own.

So I went home and got out that wonderful creamy Greek yogurt that I buy at Aldi, and went about caramelizing some onions (with beer, because onions caramelized with beer are just better). I finished the dip and still wanted to add some more flavor, so I pulled out that fabulous Bacon Salt from my pantry. This stuff works MAGIC, I tell you!

I added a little of my Sunflower Dill Pesto, too, got out a good beer and set about happily munching away. There’s something about potato chips and French onion dip that just brings my mood around to the sunny side again.
