Fabulous French Onion Dip

I'm sharing this recipe now so you will have plenty of time to try this out for your Christmas and New Year parties. I guarantee once you make this dip you will NEVER go back to buying those pre-made dips again.

It does take a few spices and herbs and even one you might not have in your pantry, but once you have them all you can make this dip over and over again.

Fabulous French Onion Dip

(Printable Copy)

1/4 cup dried onion flakes
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 beef bouillon cube (crushed)
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon dried celery flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
16 oz. sour cream

Mix all ingredients together and mix well.

Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

Stir to blend just before serving.

*Be sure to make this dip early in the day so the dried flakes have time to soften, overnight is even better.

I put my bouillon cube in a baggy and whack away.
If you don't want to have fun getting all your 
aggression out, you can sub 2 teaspoons of bouillon 
granules for the cube.

I just think this is more fun.

Plus.........somehow I ended up with two bottles of beef bouillon cubes in my pantry and this is how I'm using them up. ;)

I hope you enjoy this thick, rich onion dip over 
the Holidays.  I'm positive your family will love it!
