  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 yellow onions, thinly sliced (4 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons snipped chives
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • Salt
  • Potato chips, carrot sticks and breadsticks, for serving

How to make this recipe

  1. In a deep, medium skillet, melt the butter. Add the onions, cover and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Uncover and cook, stirring frequently, until very tender and caramelized, about 30 minutes. Add a few tablespoons of water to the skillet as necessary to prevent scorching. Transfer the onions to a bowl and let cool. Stir in the sour cream, chives, Worcestershire, garlic powder, onion powder and pepper and season with salt. Serve with potato chips, carrots and breadsticks.
