Baked Vidalia Onion Dip,TNT

Lynnda Cloutier


Just whipped this up for Saturday afternoon football. It's a take on a southern living recipe, which I altered a bit. No wine in it, but the original calls for 1/4 cup dry white wine. Hubby loved it. I served it with corn scoops. It's very easy to make and really delicious.

2 tbsp. butter or margarine
3 large vidalia onions, coarsely chopped ( i used walla walla)
2 cups shredded swiss cheese, 8 oz
2 cups mayonnaise
1 can sliced water chestnuts, drained and chopped
1/4 cup dry white wine, optional
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp. hot sauce


1Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onion, and saute 10 minutes or til tender.
Stir together shredded Swiss cheese and next 5 ingredients (including wine, if using). Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 2 quart baking dish.
2I used a 1 3/4 quart one, as that was the only size I had. Worked great.
3Bake for 25 minutes at 375 and let stand 10 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips or crackers. Makes 6 cups. You can substitute vegetable cooking spray for butter. Substitute reduced fat Swiss cheese and light mayo if you like, too.
