Caramelised Onion and Cheddar Dip
I happened to buy something similar to this from European Foods in their very amazing Cheese Cathedral (if you ever get there you will understand what I am on about!) and it was immediately on my radar to create a version of my own. It is amazing. I am not one for onions on hot dogs, or burgers or cheese for that matter, but this is so good. I have some in my fridge right now and it may end up being part of lunch. Serve this with loads of crackers (hopefully from the amazing collection we have on this site!)
So get crackering...you know you want to!
