Hot Onion Dip

Author Notes: My cousin Lana Spinner served this yummy dip at a long-ago family gathering. It’s become a staple in many households since then, partly because it’s made from pantry ingredients so you can buzz it up in a hurry without a trip to the store. A BIG Superbowl favorite.ChefJune

  2. Stir with a fork, and serve at once with cocktail rye bread.
  3. Leave the fork in the dish to serve with, or your guests will lose the onions.
