  • 5 onions sliced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 500 g gruyere cheese shredded
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/2 sour cream
  • 250 g prosciutto
  • pepper to taste
  • chopped green onion or chives for garnish


  • First you want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then get out a skillet and heat it on the stove over medium-low (or medium heat depending on your stove).
  • Slice up your onions. Slice the onion in half first and then remove the top and bottom and skin. Slice the onion in 1/4 inch slices. If your onions are really big, also slice the half in half again so the slices are shorter.
  • Add the olive oil to your skillet and add the onions. Peel and mince your garlic and add that as well. Cook the onions till they are translucent, but you don't want them to caramelize. We find that this dip is too sweet tasting with caramelized onions. If you want though, go ahead and try it caramelized. Its your dip! Slide them into a bowl and let them cool slightly.
  • In the same pan, cook your prosciutto slices. They only need 30 seconds or so on each side. Take them out, let them cool slightly, then crumble them into the onions.
  • Add the mayo, sour cream and shredded gruyere to the onions and mix to combine.
  • Pour into an oven proof dish and slide into the oven for 20 mins or until melted and bubbly. Sprinkle with green onion or chives before serving. Serve hot with crackers.
