French Onion Dip from Scratch

You don’t need to rely on a packet of soup mix to create this delicious French Onion Dip from Scratch. It takes just minutes to put together with ingredients you may already have in your kitchen.

A chip being dipped into a small dish of French onion dip.

There was a time, long, long ago, when you pretty much couldn’t plan a party menu without including classic French Onion Dip among the appetizers. You know, the one with the Lipton Onion Soup Mix and sour cream. I have such strong memories of this dip being everywhere in 1970’s suburbia.

I’ve been craving those nostalgic classics lately so I headed to my pantry to see if I could come up with a homemade French Onion Dip that doesn’t rely on the packet of soup mix. Friends, you won’t believe how easy and how delicious this made from scratch version is!

If you have 5 minutes, you have enough time to make this dip.

A close up of French Onion Dip in a small white dish.

The History of French Onion Dip

Lipton started including the recipe for what they originally called “California Dip” on their packaging in the late 1950’s. Countless home cooks had magazine clippings of the recipe stashed in their recipe boxes and the easy dip took off like wildfire over the course of the next decade. Over time, the name evolved from California Dip to French Onion Dip and it became firmly entrenched as classic American party fare.

Ingredients

All the ingredients needed to make French Onion Dip from Scratch with text overlay.
  • Just like the original version, the base of this French Onion Dip from Scratch is light or regular sour cream. I used light sour cream in all of my recipe tests and was thrilled with the result. Low calorie, low fat and super tasty. Every little bit helps, especially when potato chips are involved! Use what you like best.
  • A mixture of dry seasonings creates a copycat onion soup mix flavor that is pretty darned spot-on! Dried minced onions are tiny bits of dehydrated onion that are packed with flavor and a vital component to this dip. If you don’t already have them in your pantry, you’ll find them in the spice department of your grocery store. In addition you’ll need a little granulated garlic, onion powder, sugar, salt, and pepper.
  • I added a small amount of low sodium soy sauce to finish it off. It doesn’t add a soy sauce flavor, just a hint of savory umami that really hits the nail on the head in the flavor department.

How to Make Homemade French Onion Dip

Dip ingredients are combined in a mixing bowl.
  • Combine all the ingredients in a mixing and mix until well combined.
  • Cover and refrigerate for an hour or more before serving.

Serving Suggestions

A platter of vegetables and Ruffles chips with dip in the center.

I can’t serve French Onion Dip without classic ridged Ruffles potato chips. There’s just something about those ridges! Such a nostalgic pairing.

Assorted vegetables are also a great choice. Baby carrots, celery sticks, and sliced cucumber are a great start. Add any vegetables you love – cherry tomatoes, sliced radishes, and sliced bell peppers in assorted colors will add a pop of color to your platter.

Storage

Store French Onion Dip from Scratch covered in the refrigerator. I recommend transferring it to an airtight container to keep it as fresh as possible. Homemade dairy based dips are best consumed within 3 to 4 days.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Chilling Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes
Servings 8
Calories 85kcal

Ingredients

  • 16 ounces sour cream light or regular
  • 2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon dried minced onions or to taste (see Recipe Notes below)
  • 1/2 teaspoon reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt I use fine ground sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Optional for Serving

  • baby carrots, celery sticks, sliced cucumber and Ruffles Potato Chips (a must!)

Instructions

  • Add all the dip ingredients to a medium mixing bowl and stir well to combine.
  • Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour for minced onion to soften a bit and for flavors to develop.

Notes

This recipe yields 2 cups of dip. Nutrition information was calculated with light sour cream.

I find that 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon of dried minced onions is just the right amount. Taste the dip and add more, in very small increments if you want even more onion flavor.

Storage

Store the dip covered in the refrigerator. I recommend transferring it to an airtight container to keep it as fresh as possible. Homemade dairy based dips are best consumed within 3 to 4 days.

Cheeseburger Sliders

Cheeseburger Sliders

These cheeseburger sliders are the perfect Super Bowl party food. They are cheesy, beefy and so juicy – everything we love about cheeseburgers, and so easy to make!

They are great for feeding a crowd and can be made ahead so all you have to do is pop them in the oven right before the game. Hot gooey cheeseburgers for everyone! No grilling, no forming individual patties, no cutting all the typical hamburger toppings. Are you catching my vision here?!

A panful of cheeseburger sliders. The cheese is oozing from the rolls and you can see ground beef and chunks of tomatoes.

Not a football fan? No problem! These are the best for birthday parties, New Years Eve parties, Father’s Day, a get together with friends, or just a quick dinner for the fam! Mini cheeseburgers are a hit for kids and adults.

Ingredients Needed for Cheeseburger Sliders

Here is your grocery list for the mini burgers and the sauce that goes on top:

Sliders

  • Ground Beef
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cumin
  • Ground Mustard
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder
  • Smoked Paprika
  • Yellow Onion
  • Garlic
  • Diced Tomatoes
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • Dinner Rolls (or your favorite store bought brand)

Sauce

  • Butter
  • Mayonnaise
  • Brown Sugar
  • Yellow Mustard
  • Sesame Seeds
The measurements for each ingredient can be found in the recipe card at the end of the post.
A panful of cheeseburger sliders. There is melted cheese oozing from the rolls that are sprinkled with sesame seeds.

How to Make Cheeseburger Sliders

I mentioned how easy these are to make, so now I’m going to prove it…

  • Preheat oven.
  • Spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray.
  • Slice your rolls in half lengthwise and place the bottoms in the baking dish.
    • PRO TIP: Packing them in tight in a smaller pan (rather than a cookie sheet) helps keep the liquid from sinking to the bottom and making the bottom buns soggy.
  • Add the ground beef and onions to a large skillet and cook until browned. Drain any excess grease.
  • Add the tomatoes and stir.
  • Spread the beef mixture over the rolls. Top with the cheese slices. (Swap the cheese and beef mixture if you are making the sliders ahead of time, cheese down first)
  • Add the roll tops.
  • In a saucepan, melt the butter and stir in the remaining ingredients for the sauce.
  • Pour the sauce over the rolls and bake.

The more detailed instructions can be found in the recipe card at the end of the post.

Make Ahead Mini Cheeseburgers

To make these mini cheeseburgers ahead of time, I like to put the cheese on the bottom buns and then add the meat mixture. It helps keep the bottom rolls from getting too soggy. Complete the sliders as instructed, but don’t pour the sauce on the top until right before baking.

Stick the prepared sliders in the refrigerator and cover with plastic wrap. Add a few extra minutes to the cooking time when you go to bake them.

What Rolls to Use for Slider Buns?

If you want to make buns from scratch, I like to use our classic dinner rolls recipe. They hold up great as slider buns.

Buying store bought dinner rolls works great too and saves time. Our favorite brand is King’s Hawaiian rolls.

What to Eat with Cheeseburger Slider Buns?

These mini burgers make great appetizers, but if you are making them a main dish, you might want a side or two. You can use any of your typical hamburger sides. Here are a few of our favorites:

Some hot french fries are always on my menu when hamburgers are being made!

Variations on Cheeseburger Sliders

These are so easy to switch up and augment to make them your own. Feel free to change the type of cheese, add pickles, bacon, sauteed mushrooms, or anything that you enjoy on your cheeseburgers.

I wouldn’t recommend adding lettuce because it gets all soggy and gross when it bakes. And let’s be honest, no one likes hot lettuce!

A pan of cheeseburger sliders. There is hamburger, and melted cheese on golden dinner rolls.

What are Sliders?

Sliders are small sandwiches on a bun, usually baked with a sauce poured over the top. Think mini hamburger!

Why Make Sliders?

Sandwiches are like the best things ever! They are like a whole meal all in one perfect little package. Sliders are just mini sandwiches, so you can eat more than one and not feel guilty! The bread to meat ratio is even better than in a full sized sandwich, and they can be eaten for dinner or for an appetizer.

How Long Will Mini Burgers Keep?

Sliders can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

How Do You Reheat Sliders?

Cover with foil and reheat in a 350 degree oven for about 12 minutes.

Can Mini Cheeseburgers Be Frozen?

Mini cheeseburgers can be frozen, and it is easier to reheat frozen sliders if they are frozen individually. Wrap each slider well and freeze for up to months.

Don’t add the sauce when you’re freezing them. Make and add the sauce just before baking.

Stick the frozen sliders in your baking dish and thaw in the fridge overnight or sit them out at room temperature for a half hour or so before baking.

It’s time for football (or a birthday or NYE or Thursday night dinner), which means it’s time for these cheeseburger sliders! They are so juicy and flavorful! They come together in no time and everyone is going to be coming back for more…because you can’t ever stop at just one slider!

White Bean Hummus

White Bean Hummus | With a Whole Head of Garlic!!!

I love a good hummus recipe and after being fresh out of garbanzo beans (chick peas) which is the classic ingredient for the original hummus, I decided to use white beans instead and add in roasted garlic for a lovely and delicious variation. Man oh man, what a good idea that was! Roasting garlic mellows out that strong garlic flavor while turning it sweet! It is an extra (optional) step that you are welcome to skip…just don’t add a whole head of RAW garlic to your recipe.

roasted garlic wrapped in foil

Main Ingredients

Here’s everything else you’ll need to make White Bean Hummus!

  • White Beans – also known as Cannellini beans (found in the canned section of your local grocery store)!
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil – or just regular or light olive oil if you aren’t a huge fan of the taste.
  • Cumin – for a little spiced flavor.
  • Lemon Juice – for freshness and some zing.
  • Salt + Pepper – don’t forget to season as you go! This will give your hummus a ton of flavor.

How to Make White Bean Hummus

For full details on how to make White Bean Hummus, including increments, see the recipe card down below 🙂

Step 1: Roast the Garlic

Start out with a cute little garlic clove…or a big one. Now slice that baby down the center and take a whiff!

Place the two halves on some foil and drizzle with a little olive oil. Fold it up into a cute little package and throw it in the oven. I roasted mine at 350 for 40 minutes.

Once you pull it out of the oven, the cloves should be a lovely golden color and they should smell sort of sweet.

Step 2: Puree Ingredients

Now, let the hummus magic begin. Drain and rinse a can of white beans, then pop those into a food processor.

Squeeze the two halves of roasted garlic to make the cloves pop out. If they are roasted to perfection, then they all should just smoosh right out.

Next squeeze in some lemon juice for a little zing, some cumin for a little spice, and some salt for seasoning.

Start pulsing that mixture while you stream in some olive oil. Add in as much as you need to get the desired consistency you want. I used about 3 tablespoons.

Step 3: Adjust Seasonings then Serve!

After a minute or so, you have a pretty good looking dip! Taste it at this stage and add in anything extra you think it needs. I added in more salt and another little squeeze of lemon juice.

To serve, you just spoon it onto a platter, drizzle more olive oil over the top and add some pine nuts and parsley for decoration. See! I told you it was easy!

What to Serve with White Bean Hummus?

White Bean Hummus is an excellent source of fiber and protein, served with veggies and you have a well rounded snack or meal! Here are a couple of ideas to get you started:

  • pita bread
  • crackers
  • baby carrots
