Servings 8 Servings


  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 1/2 lbs vidalia sweet onions, sliced (about 2 LARGE onions, weigh them at the store)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup water
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1 Tbsp Shirley J Onion Seasoning
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


  • In a large skillet, heat oil on medium-high heat & add onions. Season with a little salt & pepper (1/4 tsp each). Stir occasionally & add water as necessary to keep onions from burning. Cover with a lid in between stirring (maybe every 5 minutes.) Cook until onions have reduced & turn a deep caramel color, about 30-40 minutes.

  • Bake at 425*F until the edges bubble & the top browns a little bit, about 10 minutes. Serve hot with bread, crackers, or chips.
