Miraculous Onion Dip Yum
  1. Heat sugar in a 12-inch stainless-steel skillet over medium-high heat until completely melted and light brown, about 3 minutes.
  2. Immediately add onions and stir with wooden spoon to coat onions in sugar.
  3. Add butter, salt, and black pepper. Stir to combine.
  4. Cook, shaking pan occasionally until onions release all their liquid and brown coating builds up on bottom of pan, 6 to 8 minutes.
  5. Add 2 Tbsp water while scraping with wooden spoon to deglaze brown bits from bottom of pan.
  6. Continue cooking, shaking occasionally until coating begins to build up again, about every 2 minutes.
  7. Repeat deglazing and cooking steps three more times until all water is used up and onions are deep brown.
  8. Transfer to medium mixing bowl and allow to cool at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  9. Add sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon juice, parmesan, and Worcestershire. Whisk to combine.
  10. For a smooth texture, run through blender or food processor for 1 minute until smooth. But chunky au-natural is a fine choice too.
  11. Chill in a sealed container for at least 1 hour. Overnight is better.
  12. Spoon into a bowl, sprinkle with chives, and serve with substantial hearty chips like Ruffles.
