Debating on what delicious appetizer to make for Mother's Day?
May I suggest my ultra easy and completely decadent Crock Pot Caramelized Fennel and Onion Dip?
It's so creamy, really rich and disappears quickly. Perfect with thick kettle chips, baguette slices or veggies and you can totally make it ahead if you need to!
Now, by all means, if you want to take the time to stand at the stove and cook these on low heat for about 30-45 minutes, you absolutely can and forgo the crock pot portion of the recipe. It'll come out just as delicious either way!
Crock Pot Caramelized Fennel and Onion Dip
4 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons olive oil
4 cups thinly sliced fennel
4 cups thinly sliced onion
1 ½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons sugar
3 ounces room temperature cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
Place the butter, olive oil, fennel, onion, salt, pepper and sugar in a crock pot and set on low heat for 8-10 hours.
Once cooled, add the cream cheese and sour cream.
Serve immediately or chill and serve with kettle cooked chips, cut up veggies or baguette slices.
