Baked Onion Dip

Recipe @ that's some good cookin' by Leslie

  • 2 (8 ounce) blocks cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese 
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups chopped onions
  • 2-3 tablespoons butter


  1. Preheat oven to 425-degrees F.
  2. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat.  Add onions. Cook until translucent and some of them are just barely beginning to turn golden, stirring as needed.  Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and mayonnaise with an electric hand mixer until well blended and smooth.
  4. Add the mozzarella, parmesan, and onions; mix until well blended.
  5. Pour into an appropriate size baking dish and bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes.  I have used dishes of various sizes and shapes.  This dip bakes best when it is about 1-inch deep in the dish.  This may sound really picky or technical, but per my preference, I think that this gives the best results.
