About this Recipe

Sweet caramelized onions mingle with salty bacon and Swiss cheese, in this creamy dip. Perfect for game day, or family get togethers; everyone will be begging for more.


12 oz cream cheese
1/3 cup sour cream
1 Pkg maple leaf hearty slice bacon
2 cups onion, thinly sliced
1 tsp dehydrated minced onion
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter
1/4 cup white wine
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese, divided
2 tbsp chopped green onion tops


In a large skillet, cook the bacon, over medium heat. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to cool. Chop into bite size pieces and set aside.

Add butter and olive oil to a medium skillet. Turn heat to medium-low and add onion. Allow onions to cook slowly and caramelize. This takes about 20-25 minutes so be patient so the onions do not burn. Once the onions begin to get a nice brown colour, add in the white wine and scrape up the brown bits for the bottom of the pan. Let cook until the wine has evaporated; about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.

In a medium bowl, blend the cream cheese and sour cream. Gently stir in onions, bacon, salt, and pepper. Fold in 1/2 cup of Swiss cheese. Spread dip into a small baking dish. Top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until sides are hot and bubbly.Garnish with additional bacon and chopped green onion.
