Cheesy Vidalia Onion Dip Recipe tips:
You can use a food processor to chop up the onion. This will speed things up quite a bit.
Adjust the hot sauce to your liking. I put 1 teaspoon in the recipe, but I like it a bit hotter, so I usually add more.
You can substitute 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder for the two minced garlic cloves.
Add your favorite flavors to make this dip even more delicious, like jalapeño peppers or artichoke hearts.
What to serve with Hot Vidalia Onion Dip Recipe:
I used baked crostini as the dipper, but feel free to use crackers or freshly cut vegetables instead.
To make toasted crostini, simply preheat oven at 375 degrees. Take a day-old baguette and slice each piece about 1/4″ wide crosswise.
Brush with olive oil on each slice of the bread. Place the slices of baguette on a cookie sheet, olive oil side up, and bake for 8-10 minutes until lightly toasted. Keep your eye on the toasts to make sure they don’t burn.
