oh boy.

This weekend is big in football. There are some great playoff matchups to be seen, including the Patriots possibly getting Tebowed, and the Packers playing the Giants.

Holy Aaron Rodgers, that’s about enough football talk!

Go Packers! Okay, that’s enough talk.

Let’s talk about what goes with football. What you need to make this weekend, whether you are watching football or the Golden Globes (come on, that is going to be crazy, you can’t not watch).

No matter what you have going on this weekend, you need need need to add this caramelized onion bacon dip recipe to your plans.

I guarantee it will be a home run.


This is seriously one of the most decadent things I have eaten in a while. Sweet caramelized onions, smoky bacon and creamy cheesy goodness on vehicles of crunchy veggies and light gluten free crisps.

I had to put my own spin on it, subbing my cashew cream for the sour cream. I also think I used more cheese, I don’t really know. When I am grating I lose track of ounces.

Shoshana also suggests only 1/4 cup of the “bacon” if you want more of the onion sweetness to come through, and that is what I did. The bacon and onion flavors are perfect that way, neither overpowers the other.

This recipe (with my extra cheese…) filled two 3.5 inch ramekins. You might want to double the recipe. I’m making it again and that’s what I’m doing.


What are you doing this weekend? Any football or Ricky Gervais in the plans?
