Holiday recipe... Creamy Onion Blue Cheese Dip

The Better Homes and Gardens Golden Treasury of Cooking says that the ‘50’s were the dawn of the sour cream age.  They say that one of the sensations of these years was combining sour cream and onion soup mix.  
I can’t say that I can remember when sour cream dips first were popular – I don’t remember my mother serving them; but by the time I married, I was serving these dips for card parties and the like.  I've made plain onion dip many times, but we really liked the addition of blue cheese crumbles in this recipe – we served the leftovers on baked potatoes the next day – delicious!

  1. This sounds so good. And thank you for the onion soup mix recipe. What a great idea.

  2. I'd have to use a different cheese, neither of us eat blue.


Hi...we'd love to hear from you.
