Caramelized Onion Dip

Last month we had an amazing vacation in Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone. After a day of hiking around Jenny Lake, we were ravenous and ended up at Signal Mountain Lodge for a very late lunch. We ordered their fried Brussels sprouts and French onion dip, which was better than any onion dip we’d ever had. Served with homemade potato chips, their dip was a creamy base filled with rich caramelized onions, like this recipe we ran across when we got home.
