Caramelized Onions

Rating: 4.42 stars
This has the sweet Vidalia onion and it's just plain good. Other sweet onions can also be used if Vidalia is not in season. Try it, you'll like it.

Onion Jam

Rating: 4.61 stars
A family favorite. Expect a few wrinkled noses maybe at the title, but result is worth the effort. Maybe not for beginning cooks since there's a couple potentially tricky steps. Serve a cup of jam over a bar of cream cheese with crackers, or as a spread for meat sandwiches. Keep in refrigerator in covered container for up to two weeks.

Grilled Cheese, Pickle and Vidalia Onion Sandwich

Chef John's Hot Sloppy Joe Dip

For me this checks all the boxes for a hot party dip. It's relatively cheap and easy to make, but maybe more importantly, it's great hot, warm, or room temp. And it's also incredibly versatile.
