Skinny Caramelized Onion Dip

We are home from the hospital and loving these first few days with our son, Ryan!  The delivery and hospital stay were amazing (details to come), and now we are settling into life at home with two kids!!

Malia LOVES Ryan…she is always trying to hug and kiss him, stroke his head, and telling him not to cry.  There hasn’t been a trace of jealousy yet, which we’re so amazed and thankful for!  We got Malia a present from baby Ryan, and she thought that was the greatest thing ever…thank you for that idea, Jill!

I’m not cooking a lot these days, but I saved up some recipes of things I made pre-delivery that were really yummy, including this healthy sour cream and onion dip!You have to try this recipe from Eat, Live, Run.  It’s made with greek yogurt and light sour cream, mixed together with lovely sweet caramelized onions.  Perfect with these thick cut potato chips, or fresh veggies!  I bet it would be amazing on a baked potato too…mmm, totally going to be doing that next time.

I couldn’t believe how creamy and delicious the flavor was, with just the reduced fat sour cream and my homemade greek yogurt (2%).  This will definitely be making a reappearance around college football season 🙂

Skinny Caramelized Onion Dip

From eat, live, run

1 cup reduced fat sour cream

1 cup 2% greek yogurt

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1 large onion, diced

1 T olive oil

Heat olive oil over medium-low heat and add diced onions.  Cook, stirring frequently, until onions are very soft and caramelized, about 20-30 minutes.  Cool completely.  Mix together sour cream, greek yogurt, garlic powder, salt and pepper.  Add in cooled onions and place in the refrigerator to let the flavors come together for at least 1 hour.  Serve with ruffled chips or fresh veggies.

Any college football fans out there?   I know it’s not fall yet, but what are your favorite tailgating foods?

My husband went to Notre Dame and I was raised with notre dame football, so we are big fans 🙂

    • It was really good, and the flavors kept getting better the longer it sat.

      Yes, it worked like a charm! We got her an easel, and she’s been sitting and painting a lot…it’s nice because Ryan and I can sit and watch her be creative 🙂

  1. Congrats!! Such sweet looking kids! I think having a little brother is going to make your little girl a much more responsible and caring kid, she’ll be learning how to take care of him along with you.

  2. Wow that looks amazing! I bet it’s much better than the kind you buy at the store! Your children are beautiful! Congrats again on the new arrival! What an exciting time!

    • Aw, thanks Michelle…Malia really loves her little brother, it’s very sweet! We were so worried she was going to be jealous, but she really has just embraced him as part of our family!

  3. I can’t wait to try this recipe–anything with caramelized onions sounds good to me! Congratulations on your newest addition! What a sweet picture of the both of them!

    • Thanks! We are loving having two, and I’m starting to get the hang of juggling both of them 🙂

      Yes, caramelized onions are the best! This dip tasted really rich, even though it was just greek yogurt and low fat sour cream…hope you like it!
