Cheesy Onion Dip for Super Bowl LV

True to my Super Bowl tradition and posting procedures at Eliot’s Eats, this dip was made on February 2, 2020 for Super Bowl LIV.  For some reason I have fallen into the fashion of creating an appetizer for the current Super Bowl, eating it, reviewing it, adjusting if necessary, and then posting it a year later at the following event.  Back then would I have ever thought of what 2020 was to hold for us all?  Absolutely not.

So, back when we were blissfully ignorant about what lay ahead, here’s what I whipped up.   Even though it is a year old, it is a truly worthy appetizer for your Super Bowl LV table (even if that table is smaller this year).

It truly is the best of both the oniony and the cheesy world of dips!

Cheesy Onion Dip

This dip combines the best of the appetizer universe—all things cheesy and oniony.


  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 3/4 c. diced onions
  • 3 dashes Sriracha (or favorite hot sauce)
  • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 c. sour cream
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 t. fine sea salt
  • 1/8 t. garlic powder
  • 1/8 t. white pepper
  • dash of cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 c. finely grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • additional salt to taste


  1. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet.  Over medium heat, add onions and stir until caramelized, about 20 minutes. Right before onions are done, add the sriracha and Worcestershire and stir to mix in. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk the sour cream and cream cheese until smooth.  Add salt, garlic powder, white pepper, cayenne, cooled onions and cheese.   Beat until incorporated.

I created this dip last year because I had wanted to simply make my Spicy Onion Dip (a mayo, sour cream concoction).    But, I purchased cream cheese (instead of mayo) and The Hubs wanted a cheese dip.   Cheesy Onion Dip  was born.

This dip is thick and creamy, but if you want a thinner one, just add a bit of milk when you whip up the sour cream and cream cheese.

Interested in what I actually made for this year’s meager Super Bowl celebration?   You will have to wait until 2022.  Hopefully, we all will be partying hearty by then!
