There's a note at the end of this recipe that states Reduced Fat or Fat Free Mayonnaise does not work in this recipe..???? Did you mean Reduced Fat or Fat Free Cream Cheese? There is no mayonnaise in this recipe unless it was omitted by accident.

I could eat this as a meal I loved it that much! I did cut up bread into squares with a little butter and baked them for a few minutes to use with the dip. Yum!

This is a very tasty dip. I was pleasantly surprised at how wonderful the onions tasted. I agree with the other reviewers that its much better once it has cooled. I sprinkled the top with some chili powder just before serving. The recipe is easy to reduce. I made just 1/2 and it was more than ample enough for 4 adults.I will be trying this one again with other cheeses.Janie

One thing I really liked about this has already been mentioned...it is even good when it cools down. That makes it a great recipe to take OR make when you need a snack or appetizer.
