Caramelized Onions

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 large red onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt, divided

Whipped Feta

  • 8-oz. feta cheese, cut into cubes (crumbled feta works, too)
  • 4-oz. softened cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt (or sour cream)
  • 2 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey


Caramelized Onions

  1. Heat olive oil in a small pan over low/medium heat. Add sliced red onion, garlic, and salt.
  2. Cook over low/medium heat for 5-7 minutes or until translucent and caramelized.
  3. Once caramelized, set aside.

Whipped Feta Dip

  1. Place feta cheese, cream cheese, Greek yogurt, and lemon juice in a high-speed food processor.
  2. Process on high for 1-2 minutes, stopping to scrape the sides until smooth.
  3. Option to eat whipped feta dip cold or warm it up. We prefer warming it up for creamy, hot goodness.
  4. To heat it up, preheat the oven to 400ºF. Transfer feta dipped into a small, greased baking dish (we used the small cast iron pan from the onions). Bake at 400ºF for 10 minutes.
  5. Once the sides begin to bubble, remove it from the oven. You want to make sure you don’t burn it. Stir the bubbled-sides into the rest of the dip.
  6. Then, add olive oil for garnish and caramelized onions. Serve with crostinis, veggies, chips, or crackers.
