I’m gonna come right out and say it – I LOVE CHIP DIP! Like, love it soooooo much! I almost never buy it though because I simply cannot stop myself from eating it. I’m not even kidding when I say I could 100% eat it for dinner. Of course, I’m pretty sure my husband wouldn’t be thrilled if he came home and I was all “Heyyyyy babe! Tonight for dinner we’re having dip and chips.” I mean, he wouldn’t complain but still. I at least try to be a good wife.
BUTBUTBUT the great (and horrible) thing about this homemade dip is that it’s better than my store bought dip. You guys, this is super dangerous.
You would think charring up all those onions would create a bitter dip but it totally works. It’s packed full of onion flavor and turns out super creamy. I used whole grain crunchy crackers to scoop it up but chips work too. I basically just want something super crunchy when it comes to dipping. I hate when you go into a dip and your chip/cracker breaks off. Then you’re sitting there all awkward thinking to yourself “should I go in and pull out my broken chip or just leave it in there?”
Listen, let me tell you what I think you should do. If you’re home alone fish it out. No one can see you. Stop being so formal. If you’re out in public you should find a spoon and fish it out. NO ONE wants to dip in and pull out your broken chip. It’s gross.
Also, if you’re looking for some awesome football food this is the recipe you’re looking for. This dish a total crowd pleaser! Just ask my husband – he got home and literally shoveled this into his mouth while I finished up dinner.
So. Freaking. Delicious.

Put your oven on high broil and move the rack about 6 inches from the top of the oven. If your oven does not have a broil setting put your oven on 500 degrees.
To a large rimmed baking sheet add green onions, leek, scallions, olive oil and desired amount of kosher salt and pepper. Toss to evenly coat and add the oven.
Broil the onions, tossing them once while cooking. It's ok for them to get a little charred but don't let them totally burn - about 15 minutes. Let cool.
In a medium sized mixing bowl add grated garlic, mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon zest, lemon juice and chopped fresh thyme leaves. Mix to combine. Stir in cooled onions and thin out with a little milk if needed or desired.
Serve with crackers.
The dip can be served room temperature or cold. (The dip does contain dairy products so don't let it sit in the sun or leave it out for hours.)
