Caramelized French Onion Dip
Recipe from The Food Channel

This dip is worth the time it takes to make it. You can't buy these flavors in a bottle or package. It'll be the favorite appetizer at your party. We put the onion dip in a prepared hollowed-out heirloom pumpkin and placed it on a silver platter surrounded by homemade potato was stunning!
