I think that is one of the fun parts of growing up, I can make my own version of 'mud pies' and hopefully make them edible in the process.
I love a french onion dip, something about it makes my mouth smile.
But I didn't have any french onion soup mix, well, I never have french onion soup mix in the house. I don't think I've bought any in probably twenty years. Just something I don't buy.
The mix I came up with was really tasty and easy to do.
4 oz. Cream Cheese, room temp
1/2 cup Sour Cream
2 tablespoons dried Minced Onions
1/2 teaspoon dried Tarragon
1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
2 teaspoons McCormicks Au Jus gravy mix (one of the few mixes I keep on hand)
4 green onions, sliced
1 teaspoon Ranch Dressing mix (just happened to have some that I used on a Mississippi Pot Roast)
Mix all the ingredients together and place in the fridge for an hour or two or three.
Serve with Chips or Crackers or even as a spread with a slice of rare roast beef on a sandwich. I took some with me to NPA last night and got the thumbs on on this.
