Cheesy Hot Onion Dip

When we were at my parents for Christmas, we made this delicious hot onion dip recipe. My mom originally got this recipe from my Dad’s cousin by marriage, Paula Wallace (one of the very best cooks ever). Of course, Mom put her own spin on it…because it’s Mom, (have you checked out her site yet? Simply Sated is the bomb) and it is SO good.

We didn’t tell Pat what was in it, because I knew he doesn’t ‘like’ anything containing onions. But he LOVED this hot onion souffle dip. That’s because hot onion dip doesn’t really taste like onions, even though the name suggests otherwise. I mean there’s SO much cheese in it, the onion flavor barely exists. Even after I told him that the dip contains onions, he continued to eat it! If you knew him, you would know how shocking that really is. And THAT is how you know it’s good.

This cheesy hot onion dip recipe is a winner 100%.
