Vidalia Onion Dip
Time for this Georgia specialty to go national.
Why This Recipe Works
This signature Georgia dip is usually made by mixing cheese, finely chopped sweet Vidalia onions, and mayonnaise and baking the mixture until warm and bubbly. We upped the ratio of onions to mayonnaise to let the Vidalia onion flavor shine. We preferred the sharp flavor of cheddar cheese to milder Swiss, but the cheddar separated during baking, turning greasy. Adding just ½ cup of American cheese, which is more stable when melted, to the cheddar held the dip together as it baked and the cheese melted. A few scallion greens both in the dip and sprinkled on top added color and accentuated the onion flavor.
