French onion dip is wealthy, satisfying and surprisingly straightforward to make. 

Chef Hunter Evans of Elvie’s Restaurant in Jackson, Mississippi, has created a tantalizing dip that you simply’ll wish to add to your vacation cooking repertoire. 

“We originally ran the French onion dip as a special that was paired with crispy puffed beef tendon, but this dish is a fresh spin on a classic and a must-have at all your holiday parties,” says Evans.
