French Onion Dip

Okay, just for the record, this probably isn’t a dish you want to make for Valentine’s Day… for obvious reasons.

I have been eating french onion dip for as long as I can remember. I have bought it, and I have made it with those soup packets, you know the ones, but until a friend emailed this to me… I don’t think I even knew you could make it from scratch… yes this is me, admitting my kitchen ignorance…but fear not! I have been educated and I am sharing the knowledge with you …. yes yes, you are very welcome.
