This dip was such a hit at our last get together! Based on other reviewers comments about it being a little oily instead of the 2 cups of mayonaise I put a block of softened low-fat cream cheese and 8-oz of low fat sour cream into a 2-cup measuring cup and topped it off with mayonaise to make 2 cups. I also used sweet Vidalia onions. This was so-o-o good!! Read More

This was a HUGE disappointment. Because of the obvious fat content I used low-fat mayo and low-fat swiss. I still ended up using a good 12-14 paper towels to soak up part of the grease it produces. (Not all just part!) After all that effort the flavor is NOT that great. It was a terrible disappointment and I certainly will not make it again! Sorry. Read More

I have made this dip for several gatherings and it's always well received. I've experimented with how big to cut the onions and a medium chop seems to work best. I've found that the dip doesn't really reheat well--tends to separate. A great recipe though. Very quick and easy to make and absolutely delicious! Read More

This was great Noreen! - The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars what that the onions were a little 'undone'... I did make a 2nd time and sauteed the onions on medium heat for about 10 minutes. I also added red pepper flakes. RAVE REVIEWS!!! So easy so delicious! Definitely a pleaser! Read More

A bit on the oily side for my taste. However it was very tasty. I used Vidalia onion and green onion. I think I'll try this again to see if half mayo and half sour cream cuts the oiliness. Thanks Noreen. Read More

JUST A LITTLE TIP: if you over cook any dip that is creamy and cheesy the oil will seperate so keep a close eye on them when there almost done Read More

Oh my goodness! A recipe couldn't be more delicious or simple. My guests almost licked the bowl clean....... I mixed it up the day before a dinner and just popped it in the oven before my guests arrived. Thanks for sharing. Read More
