Written by admin


  • 1 1/4 cups finely chopped yellow sweet onions (Maya, Vidalia, etc)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise (Best Foods, Hellmann’s, or Vegenaise)
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt or 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • Tabasco sauce, to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon curry powder, to taste (optional but recommended)
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon smoked Spanish paprika or 1/8 teaspoon dried ancho chile powder or 1/8 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green onion, for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the onions, minced garlic, mayonnaise, yogurt or sour cream, cheddar cheese, and Tabasco sauce (and curry powder, if using).
  3. Spread the mixture into a lightly greased, small-to-medium-sized baking dish.
  4. Top the mixture with grated Parmesan cheese and sprinkle with paprika to taste. (You can substitute ground ancho chile powder for paprika if you prefer more kick.)
  5. Bake in the preheated 350-degree F oven for 25 to 30 minutes.
  6. Garnish with chopped green onion (scallion).
  7. Serve the dip hot or warm with crackers, bread, or raw vegetable dippers.
