French onion dip gets its unique taste from bouillon beef base. This gives it a rich umami flavor. Onion dip is primarily made with onions and few a spices.

Ingredients For Easy French Onion Dip:

Showing ingredients. Better than bouillon beef base, sour cream, herbs, and seasonings.

How To Make Easy Homemade French Onion Dip:

Step 1. Add all the ingredients to a small bowl and stir until well combined.

Step 2. You’ll want to refrigerate the dip for at least 30-minutes before diving in. This will give a chance for the dried onions to soften and the flavors to blend.

The hardest part about this recipe is that 30-minute wait time but I promise it’s worth it!

What to serve with onion dip:

Classic ruffled potato chips are always a must but Frito scoops (original corn chips) are so yummy. Carrot and celery sticks are great for those that want something a little lighter. Also mini peppers and whole button mushrooms are a perfect addition.
