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.
