This is a basic preparation with lots of flavor. Simply caramelize onions over the stove and combine with cream cheese, mayonnaise, and fresh herbs. Serve with crackers or bread.
1 8 oz container of whipped cream cheese
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 white or yellow onion (sliced)
1 clove of garlic (minced)
1 teaspoon plain sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
handful of parsley (chopped)
1 green onion (chopped)
Slice onions and toss with sugar and salt. Over medium-high heat, fry onions in 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil. Continue to cook, tossing in between, until onions have browned and caramelized. Just before onions have finished cooking add minced garlic and toss for about a minute. Then remove from pan and set aside. In a medium-sized bowl, combine cream cheese and mayo. Fold in the caramelized onions, parsley, and green onions, and serve.
