Bacon and Caramelized Onion Dip

At first glance you might think this creamy dip is loaded with mayonnaise or sour cream, but white beans are the secret! Mixed with onions that turn sweet and caramelized from cooking in the bacon drippings, it’s so delicious. This will definitely be your new “french onion dip.”


  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1/2 cup diced red onions
  • One 14-ounce can white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • From your pantry:
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Salt to taste


In a medium skillet, cook bacon on medium-high heat until crispy. Remove and place on a paper towel to drain. In the same skillet, cook onions over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes, until browned and caramelized. Remove and add to a paper towel with bacon. When bacon is cool, crumble into tiny pieces, leaving half a piece of bacon for garnish.

Add white beans, sour cream, and pepper to a food processor. Puree for 1 1/2 minutes, until smooth. Empty into a bowl and stir in bacon and onions. Taste and add salt if needed. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes so that dip thickens. When ready to serve, garnish with half piece of bacon and a few onions.

Tip: Make one day ahead to let flavors deepen.
