Sour Cream Onion Dip

When I researched for a french onion dip recipe, every sour cream onion dip used soup mix. I didn’t want to use an onion soup mix for my sour cream onion dip. I wanted a real homemade dip. So I created one.

Balsamic French Onion Dip With Bacon is a dip recipe for chips. This sour cream onion dip is an easy cold dip recipe. You will love making this homemade dip for your next party!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 strips bacon
  • 1 large yellow onion (finely diced)
  • 1 teaspoon Hawaiian Alaea salt
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar glaze
  • 1 1/4 cups sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper


  1. Cook the bacon until it is crisp, remove and let it drain and cool on a paper towel. In the pan that cooked the bacon melt the butter and add the onion to saute it. You can grate the onion or use a chopper or food processor to get finely diced. Cook the onion for about 2 minutes.
  2. Next add the salt, garlic, sugar, and Worcestershire sauce. Mix it all together and let the onions cook for another 2 minutes. Why Hawaiian salt? I been reading about different salts. Most know Sea Salt as a healthy salt, and Himalayan is starting to get more popular as well. The Hawaiian is actually very flavorful, it healthier then sea salt, it very good for those who suffer high blood pressure, it doesn't add to the sodium.
  3. So after you cooked the onions, remove them from the heat and add that balsamic glaze, give it a good stir to mix it in and let the onion mixture cool.
  4. Add the onions are cooling you want to blend the sour cream, mayonnaise, cayenne pepper, and black pepper together.
  5. Add the cooled onions to the sour cream mixture. Mix it well.
  6. Finally, crumble the bacon and mix it into the dip. Cover the dip with plastic wrap and let it set up in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  7. When it is party time unwrap it, put in your bowl and ENJOY!
