So I hear Super Bowl’s this Sunday??? I really do like to watch football, but I don’t care for either of the teams playing this year. But it’s okay. I still love game day food, Super Bowl commercials, and the half time show so I will keep myself entertained during the game.
Speaking of game day food, I’ve got a good one for you today (Steve Harvey style). After wings, dips are my favorite thing to eat while watching a game. Well, maybe I love nachos more, but aren’t nachos the same thing as dips? Instead of dipping chips or veggies into the dip, you lay down the chips first and pour the dip part over everything. Just a thought. This is what happens when I start writing a blog post without a plan. Back to the recipe…
Caramelized Onion Bacon Dip
- 1/2 cup raw cashews
- 2 slices thick cut bacon, chopped
- 1 large onion, sliced
- Fresh cracked peppers, to taste
- Sea salt, to taste
- 1/2 cup paleo mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1 tsp raw apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp crushed red pepper
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp cayenne (optional)
- Chopped green onions, for garnish.
Soak cashews for at least 1 hour.
Heat a pan to medium high heat
Cook chopped bacon on the pan until they are brown and crispy.
Remove the bacon bits with a slotted spoon and set aside, leaving the bacon grease in the pan.
Add the onions into the pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook stirring occasionally for 20 minutes until the onions are caramelized. Remove from heat.
Drain the cashews and place in a food processor.
Add mayo, nutritional yeast, raw apple cider vinegar, onion powder, crushed red pepper, salt, and cayenne (optional) in the food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.
Place in a bowl, then add bacon bits and caramelized onions and mix well.
Sprinkle with green onions. Serve with chips and/or sliced vegetables.
