Instructions

Warm French Onion Dip

  1. Add oil to a large saute pan and add in onions.
  2. Over medium-high heat cook onions in a single layer for 30 minutes. Try not to stir the onions too much. You can turn the heat down to medium if they seem like they are burning.
  3. Add garlic and cook for a minute.
  4. Add in white wine and deglaze the pan, 1-2 minutes.
  5. Stir in beef consume and bring to a simmer.
  6. Add in mayo, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, Swiss cheese and pepper. Stir to combine making sure cream cheese has fully melted.
  7. Take off the heat and pour mixture into a cast iron skillet or leave in the same skillet if it is oven safe. Top with Parmesan and Swiss cheese.
  8. Place under the broiler and cook until cheese is melted and bubbly about 2 minutes.
  9. Add parsley for garnish and serve immediately alongside the Garlic Cheese Crostini.

Garlic Cheese Crostini

  1. Add garlic, olive oil and salt to a mortar and pestle or a bowl. Crush the garlic in the oil (you can use a muddler if you do not have a mortar and pestle). This breaks up the garlic and infuses the flavor into the oil.
  2. Stir in dried oregano.
  3. Spoon the oil onto each slice of bread.
  4. Top with parmesan cheese.
  5. Place in the oven under the broiler and bake for about 2 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the bread is crispy. Keep a very close eye on them they burn easily.
