Roasted Red Onion Dip

The holiday weekend has almost arrived! Hope everyone has lots of fun activities planned for the next 4 days. We are at our shore house enjoying summer living, and hopefully the weather will turn in our favor to get us on the beach today!

After going to Restaurant Depot last weekend and coming home with a steal of a deal – a HUGE bag of red onions for less than $6!!! – I tackled Google to find different ways to use them up, and found this…


This dip is the perfect appetizer to bring wherever you may be going. It can be made ahead of time and it’s easy to transport. But if I were you, I’d double the recipe. Six people wiped this amount out in less than 10 minutes 🙂

Happy Independence Day, everyone!

Roasted Red Onion Dip
slightly adapted from DR Food Blog

3 red onions, peeled and quartered
6 garlic cloves
extra virgin olive oil
1 (8 ounce) block cream cheese
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toss onions and garlic in a bowl with a little oil and coat evenly. Place on baking pan and roast for around 40 minutes. Let cool.

Peel garlic, then place it with onions and cream cheese in a food processor. Puree until mixed. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with raw veggies and chips/pretzels, or refrigerate until ready to serve.

    Oh Melissa, I really like this idea. I’m not a huge fan of red onions, but I want to be, so I’m always up for new recipe ideas. Thanks for the tip on doubling the recipe too. Hope you enjoyed the holiday weekend!
