Caramelized onion and goat cheese dip
2 tablespoons butter
2 sweet onions, halved and thinly sliced
1 teaspoon sugar
½ cup cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup sour cream
4 ounces goat cheese, room temperature
½ teaspoon minced fresh thyme, or ¼ teaspoon dried
3 to 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Freshly ground black pepper
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add butter to melt, then add sliced onions. Sprinkle with sugar and cook, stirring frequently, until onions become soft and deep golden brown, about 10 minutes. Spread out on a plate to cool.
In a standing mixer or food processor, combine the cream cheese, sour cream, goat cheese and thyme; beat or process until smooth. Stir in cooled onions, then season with lemon juice, salt and freshly ground pepper. Taste and adjust.
