As you peruse many an article with tips and tricks for your Superbowl party this weekend, take a little extra time to make a few of your dishes stand out. Sure, you can go to a famous chain and purchase a few feet of sandwiches or a bucket or two of chicken already crisped up, perhaps you even rip open the package and pour in the onion dip seasoning into a jar of sour cream. How about stepping it up this year with just a few extra steps and some easy recipes to make your otherwise "boring" buffet table more of a show stopper.

Guaranteed, this Onion Dip will be G-O-N-E gone!

Superbowl Caramelized Onion Dip

1/4 cup EVOO
Coarse sea salt & pepper
6 yellow onions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup Classic Balsamic Vinegar
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme or 2 tsp dried
2-8 oz. packages cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup plain Greek yogurt

Heat olive oil over medium high heat. Cook sliced onions, until soft and browned, about 15 minutes, remember to stir often so they do not burn. Cover; reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are completely soft, about 40 minutes more.

Raise heat slightly, and season with salt and pepper. Add vinegar and thyme; simmer until the vinegar is absorbed then remove from heat. Let the onions cool slightly and chop finely or until you have a slightly pasty mixture.

With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth, then add the Greek yogurt and onions; season to taste with additional salt and pepper, if any. Place mixture in serving bowls and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until ready to use. This recipe can easily be made 1 to 2 days ahead.
