Whipped Goat Cheese Dip with Caramelized Onions

Whipped Goat Cheese Dip with Caramelized Onions
Michael and I threw a housewarming party in December, and in addition to some sweets I decided to make a dip for veggies and chips. And I wanted it to be easy to make (I had a lot going on) and super tasty. This recipe ABSOLUTELY fit the bill!

Everyone at the party looooved it and were like "What's in it?? How'd you make it?!" Answer: goat cheese, caramelized onions, and heavy cream. Whipped together with a hand mixer. THE END. Like....it doesn't get much easier. The caramelized onions are the source of all the deeeelicious flavor because caramelized onions are friggin miraculous. The cream is just to thin out the goat cheese so it's not TOO thick, although I'm sort of curious what would happen if you just used milk?

Anyway, the other beautiful thing about making this dip when entertaining is that it tastes even better the day after you make it. So I recommend making it the day before your event. Then the flavors all get to chill out and mingle together longer. Maximum deliciousness. I really really liked this one, def. one of my favorite dips I've ever made. I think you'll all agree!

Whipped Goat Cheese Dip with Caramelized Onions
Makes approx. 12-16 servings

Ingredients:
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely diced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 12 oz. plain goat cheese
  • 3-6 tbsp. (or more, if needed) heavy cream (I'm curious to try with milk instead of heavy cream)
Preparation:
  • In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion to the pan, season with salt and pepper and sugar. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion has fully softened, browned and caramelized, about 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool.
  • In a bowl, using an electric mixer, combine the goat cheese and 3 tablespoons of the cream. Mix until combined, then increase the speed and whip it. Continue whipping until smooth and fluffy, adding additional cream as needed, until you get your desired texture. (The total amount needed will vary depending on the texture and moisture of your goat cheese.) 
  • Once the dip is smooth and your desired texture, stir in the caramelized onions. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
  • Serve with chips or veggies! Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
