Crockpot French Onion Dip with homemade chips. It is so amazing and will be a keeper for you to cook over and over again. I have never ever tasted an onion dip as good as this one. Get out your crockpot and come and make French onion dip in the crockpot slow cooker with me.
Mrs Beeton Book of Household Management talks on page 480 about onion sauce. In the classic Mrs Beeton version onions are boiled, served with white sauce, a little lemon juice and served with meat or fish.
It was a very popular onion sauce to be paired with your meals and it made me realise that this Crockpot French Onion Dip is just a modern take on the Mrs Beeton original. Unlike in the old days when onions were boiled they are slow cooked instead. This allows the onion to keep its amazing flavour and nutrients.
As well as this, your onion sauce is now lower in calories thanks to flour being replaced with a drizzle of white wine along with cheese and other dairy.
I still like the original Mrs Beeton version but I also find this version would impress our grandparents too. They would think that we were being imaginative and that unlike lots of modern day cooking, that it was not spicy!

This is because we pay a lot more for our meat and dairy, yet a lot less for fruit and vegetables that it levels itself out.
I kind of want to put this on my cheap meals for two. But look at the size of it, you can hardly call it cheap meals for two. BUT when you take into account bumping it up with fresh bread or more chips.
