Caramelized Onion Dip

Today's offering is one of my favorite dips...onion dip!
It goes with so many snack options and people will always ask for the recipe.
I don't measure this one so I am going to do my best to give you roughly what I use.
Dice 2 cups of white onions and saute in 2 T olive oil over med high heat. Sprinkle with a few good pinches of sea salt and 3 pinches of brown sugar. continue to saute until it looks nice and caramelized stirring frequently so not to burn them.
Let them cool on a towel to absorb some of the oil. Mix 1 1/2 cups of sour cream and mayo together in a good sized mixing bowl and add the cooled onions.
Next add some garlic salt, vegetable blend, and dried onion My guess is a teaspoon of each.
Lastly add a teaspoon of Kitchen Bouquet to give it that signature soup mix color.
Be sure to make it at least 4 hours in advance so the flavors blend well, overnight is best though.

 I am serving this tonight with some beer bread I made from a hearty stout.
Recipe to come!
