This Warm Gruyere Bacon and Caramelized Onion Dip is always one of the first foods gone at a party.
It’s party season and each year I try and find ways to tweak my holiday menus. But sometimes, things are too popular to remove. And this Warm Gruyere, Bacon, and Caramelized Onion Dip is a perfect example.
Um, hello? How can that not be spectacular? The flavors together are a-mazing, and it has just the right cheesiness without being messy.
I always strive to have easy to eat foods at the party. And ones I don’t have to deal with once guests arrive. This Warm Gruyere, Bacon and Caramelized Onion Dip fits that bill. I can already tell you which two of my friends will be conveniently camped right next to it. (They are very protective of their party food, especially this Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball.)
How can I say that something with caramelized onions lends itself to easy holiday entertaining when caramelizing the onions themselves takes a while?
Trust me, they are perfect because you can make them months ahead. They freeze beautifully, so make them now, pop them in the freezer, and you’ll have caramelized onions on hand that you can toss into recipes in no time flat. Recipes like this Flatbread with Goat Cheese and Caramelized Onions.
See where I’m going with this? Using the same ingredient in a few dishes and making the appetizers easy for your friends to eat are keys to low-stress holiday entertaining.
