Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 45 mins
Total Time: 1 hr
Servings: 15 servings


  • 3 yellow onions - thinly sliced (1/8" thick)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 8 oz cream cheese - softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons fresh parsley - chopped (you can add more if you'd like)
  • potato chips - for serving


  • Slice onions in half length wise and then slice to 1/8" thickness. I used a mandolin which made it fast and easy.
  • In a 12 inch skillet over medium-low heat add the olive oil and onions. Stir occasionally. Keep the heat at the medium-low setting, you don't want to get overzealous and use too hot of heat and then burn the onions. 
  • Caramelizing onions takes about 40-45 minutes. You want the onions to be a rich brown, soft but not mushy.
  • Once the onions have caramelized, remove from heat. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl combine the cream cheese, sour cream, mayo, salt, and Worcestershire sauce. Using hand beaters, cream the mixture until it's a smooth consistency. 
  • On a cutting board, slice the onions so that they are bite sized pieces. 
  • Add the onions and fresh parsley to the cream cheese mixture and stir to combine. Serve with potato chips!
