Overrated: truffle oil. Accurately rated: tuna melts. Seriously underrated: onion dip.

Is there anything more addictive? Throw us in front of a bowl of this stuff with a bag of Ruffles and we're the hungriest and most helpless of binge-eaters.

Should you choose to go deep on this party favorite, it pays to make your own instead of adhering to the old onion-soup-and-sour-cream version (though there's plenty to be said about that, too). This recipe starts with real actual onion as well as onion flakes and onion powder. Hell, caramelized onions add a touch of sweetness and Worcestershire sauce add a serious pop of umami in this twist on a classic favorite.
