This is the first thing to be eaten at every party, and it's sinfully easy! If you are not a big onion fan, don't be afraid. Onion is not the dominant flavor of the dish, and it adds just the right touch. Serve with crackers or cocktail toast.

This dip was wonderful. Based on other reviews I changed the following; sauteed my onions first, added a sprinkling of red pepper flakes and used a 5 cheese blend (parmesean, asiago, romano, mozzarella and provolone..kraft makes this already shredded). I halved the recipe as I only had a few people over. They raved about it and of course wanted the recipe. I served the dip with vegetables and crackers. I also thought it would be fun to put the dip in a bread bowl. Will probably do that next time. Thanks for a fast,easy recipe!


This is a really great dip. I used 2 pkgs of plain cream cheese and 1 pkg of onion & chives. Easy to make and almost any cracker works with this! My ONLY minor complaint, it looks somewhat greasy. Next time, I'll serve in a hollow bread bowl to soak that up so no one gets turned off by it. Still, the taste is great!


PHENOMENAL! I cut the recipe to 1/3 (it was served as a late-night snack) and followed the measurements exactly. I put my chopped onion in the food processor and basically pulverized it. I then sauteed it in 1T of melted butter, and lightly salted the onion as it sauteed. Then, since this was a last-minute idea, I ADDED COLD CREAM CHEESE to the onions in the warm pan, and stirred in all the remaining ingredients (the parm was last) over medium low heat until it was smooth. I then baked it, and garnished it with chives. It was served with Sea Salt Bagel Chips from Trader Joe's, and was a hit! This recipe was so, so easy, and so, so delicious. Five stars, any day. This is being added to my personal recipes tonight! Thanks for sharing this one. :)
