  • 1 ⁄4 cup olive oil
  • 2 ounces 1⁄4 cup salted butter
  • 2 large onions very thinly vertically sliced (about 7 1⁄2 cups)
  • 3 ⁄4 teaspoon table salt
  • 1 ⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 ⁄2 cup sour cream
  • 1 ⁄2 cup mayonnaise such as Hellmann’s
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Potato chips such as Ruffles


  • Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet over medium; cook until butter melts. Add the onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is caramelized, about 50 minutes, reducing the heat as needed to prevent the onion from burning. Remove from the heat; stir in salt and pepper, and cool to room temperature, about 15 minutes. Coarsely chop the onion mixture.
  • Combine the cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl, stirring with a whisk until smooth; fold in the onion mixture. Refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes. Serve with the potato chips.
