4 Ingredient Caramelized Onion Spread

Let's face it: condiments are king (or queen.) The make or break of a meal. The icing on the cake, if you will. I could happily eat a dry slab of meat (okay, maybe not happily) with bland veggies for each meal as long as I have a yummy something or other to drizzle on top. When it comes to crackers, specifically our Jilz Gluten Free crackers, I hardly need anything to persuade me to eat more. Sometimes, though, between the handfuls of topping-less crackers shoved into my jaws, I pry my hands away from the package long enough to slather one or two with a delicious dip or sauce. 

Today I'm sharing a super simple recipe for a Caramelized Onion Spread that is perfect for topping your favorite crackers, sandwiches, and more. It's also Whole 30 friendly if you use it as a sauce for lettuce wraps, or for dunking your veggies (NO CHIPS OR CRACKERS HERE FOLKS!) It's pretty easy to whip this up, and add your favorite spices and other toppings to customize and further savor. It's paleo, dairy free, Whole30 friendly, and 100% delish.


Here's how to make it

For this simple Roasted Onion Spread, you'll need:

4 Tbsp primal mayo (or the amount you'd like in your end result)

1/2 diced onion, the smaller the better (I like to finely mince in a food processor, think McDonald's hamburger style mince ;)

1-2 tsp ghee

1/2 - 1 tsp onion powder

salt, garlic powder, optional


Heat a skillet to medium high heat and add ghee to melt.

Add onion into the ghee once ghee is liquid and hot, sprinkle with a pinch of salt, and stir. Reduce heat and cook low and slow until onions have caramelized and are soft and light brown. Let cool. 

Add onion to the mayo, then add a pinch of garlic powder or onion powder if desired. Stir everything well, and refrigerate before using.
