Pan-Fried Onion Dip
When I was in high school, my all time favorites was chips and dip. Ok, more like ruffled potato chips and Frito-Lay canned onion dip. I remember picking it up at the gas station on my way home from work. I know it was so bad for me, but I was a teenager. It was so good! I’m sure you all remember your favorites that you could eat as a teenager and not worry about anything. Anyway, a few years ago, I found a recipe for onion dip and fell in love! I substitute the mayo for vegenaise. Pair this dip with kettle cooked chips and a Radler (German drink of a pilsner beer mixed with sprite)! My favorite chips are the Kettle Brand Chips Cheese and Beer flavor.
