Mr. Devilish Dish' Famous French Onion Dip

I've never been a fan of French Onion Dip.  Well let me re-phrase that.  I've never been a fan of that yucky, pre-made excuse for French Onion Dip that comes in the carton.  The one that you buy at 7-11 really late at night when you are desperately hungry and even the suspiciously aged hot dogs on the roller look good?  Yeah.  That dip.  In the carton.  Forgive me if that sounds harsh, it's just something I've never enjoyed.  To be honest, I don't even like the dry onion soup mix combined with sour cream.  Although it's leaps and bounds ahead of the other stuff.  Then Mr. Devilish Dish who loves any excuse to caramelize onions decided he would win me over to the French Onion Dip Dark Side.  So he made the real deal!  Even if you think the pre-made version is the bomb, trust me.  This is bomber.  Bomber?  More bomb.  It's even better if you make it the night before, so it's a party perfect recipe.  Your potato chips will thank you!
Mr. Devilish Dish' Bomber than the Carton
French Onion Dip!

French Onion Dip

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 cups diced white onion
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1/2-3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
kosher salt to taste

In a skillet over medium heat, add olive oil.  Add diced onions and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt.  Cook approximately 20 minutes, or until onions are caramelized and a beautiful, golden-brown color.  Be patient.  This step will take a while.  Remove caramelized onions from heat and allow to cool completely.  Combine the remaining ingredients, and add the cooled onions.  Store in a sealed container and refrigerate over night before serving.

Prep Time:  Approximately 30 minutes     Cook Time:  Needs to Chill
