Merry Christmas Recipe!
M. was dancing with happiness this morning. We had a great time! M. even slept in until 7am. As we were opening presents, snow started falling. A perfect white Christmas.
So with that, I am leaving you with a perfect recipe. My sister's recipe actually. She has been making it for over 10 years now. We lovingly call it Onion Souffle, but I have many times referred to it as white trash dip. Doesn't matter, because on countless occasions it has been at a party or gathering with me, it is the FIRST thing to go on a table. If you are a person who likes spinach dip or baked artichoke dip, you will like this. People will ask you for the recipe. It will become a recipe you keep. I would not share it with you unless I was absolutely sure of this. If you bring it to a party make sure it is just out of the oven before you take it, or if possible bake it at your friends house if you are bringing it. If it has to sit out for an long time before it is served, choose something else. This is a dish best served promptly. And, forget about the calories and fat for about a half hour until it is gone!
3 blocks cream cheese (we use low fat)
1/2 cup mayo
2 cups shredded Parmesan
3 shakes/squirts hot sauce like Tabasco
1 bag frozen onions, thawed, excess liquid pressed out
In bowl, beat cream cheese, onion, and mayo with hand blender
Stir in Parmesan and hot sauce
Spoon into shallow dish, bake at 350 degrees for around 25 minutes or until bubbling and slightly brown on top.
Serve with Frito's, Belgian endive, apple slices; whatever you choose.
