Ever since I was a small kid, I have always loved french onion dip. It was one of them staples at parties, and holiday table spreads. Everyone had a nice big bowl of french onion dip with tons of potato chips, and veggies for dipping. Flash forward to present day, and I still keep the french onion dip tradition for parties and events. Kraft French Onion Dip happens to be my favorite because it is tasty, easy, and very reasonably priced.
Besides being a wonderful chip and veggie dip, Kraft French Onion Dip can also be used as an ingredient in a variety of out of the box recipe ideas. In addition to the French Onion Dip, Kraft actually has to other dips which can also be incorporated into recipes, they also include:
- Green Onion Dip
- Bacon and Cheddar Dip
I recently went to my local Walmart store to pick up a few packages of Kraft French Onion Dip because I wanted to make a batch of my Savory French Onion Meatballs in a Mushroom Cream Sauce. You can find this, and the other two Kraft Dips in the refrigerated isle in new, alluring, and bright packaging. I love that the French Onion dip package features a ruffled chip because that used to be my favorite way to enjoy this product until I created this meatball recipe.
These hearty meatballs are so good they should be illegal. Served with some pasta, or even alone they are incredible and jam-packed with tasty goodness! My family loves my many meatball recipes because they are each unique and very delicious. This Savory French Onion Meatballs in a Mushroom Cream Sauce is no exception and calls for one package of my “not so secret ingredient” which happens to be Kraft French Onion Dip!
Want to make these lovely meatballs for your family?
Here is what you’ll need to make 24 meatballs:
- 2 lbs of 80% fat ground hamburger
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons of ketchup
- 2 tablespoons of mustard
- 2 slices of freshly crumbled bread
- celery salt, pepper, to taste
Mushroom Cream Sauce:
- 1 16 ounce container of Kraft French Onion Dip
- 1 cup of chicken stock
- 2 tablespoons of flour
- 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
- 1/3 cup of heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 cup of chopped mushrooms
- 1 cup of diced onions
Add all the meatball ingredients to a bowl and mix thoroughly with your hands. Form balls with your hands about 1 1/2 inches thick and place them on a baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from baking tray and drain grease.
In a large, deep walled skillet heat olive oil over medium heat. Add in onions, mushrooms, and black pepper and cook until tender. Once veggies are tender, add in one cup of chicken stock, cream and then the flour. Be sure to whisk in the flour so the juiced can evenly thicken. Once sauce is thick and creamy, stir in the French Onion Dip.
The next step to get a creamier sauce is to place it in the blender, and pulse it about three times to get the veggies into smaller pieces. Once the sauce is pureed, add it back to the skillet, and place the meatballs inside. Serve immediately, or place on a warmer until you are ready to indulge in some delicious meatballs. These French Onion Meatballs produce enough sauce to serve over pasta or rice.
If you love creamy comfort foods, then this French Onion Meatball recipe is for you! Place the completed meatballs and sauce in a crock pot on low for parties, and events! My picky little kids even approved of this recipe so it was pretty awesome considering it is an “Amy original”.
