2 c white onions
2 Tbsp olive oil (optional)
1 pinch kosher salt (optional)
16 oz container sour cream

1 tsp kosher salt (necessary)
1/2 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Peel and cut to medium dice 1 or 2 onions, to fill two cups. Set Neufchatel Cheese out to soften. Choose your favorite onion, but it’s best with white.
Heat Olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat (if using a nonstick pan omit oil) Cook onion with a pinch of kosher salt until they get a very well-done golden brown, stirring constantly. The longer you take the better the results, high temperatures will burn the onion and scald the oil, so watch this closly. Let onion cool.
While the onion is cooling, place light sour cream and Neufchatel cheese in medium bowl and mix with electric beaters until mostly smooth. Add 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt and 1/2 teaspoon each of white pepper and garlic powder. Combine thoroughly.
When the browned onions are completely cooled, add them to sour cream and cheese mixture and combine completely with a spoon or spatula. Cover tightly and refrigerate to let the flavors set for 4 to 6 hours; overnight is even better. Serve with your favorite dippers for onion dip.
