Caramelized Shallot and Blue Cheese Dip Recipe
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 3/4 C. chopped shallots
3/4 C. good quality mayonnaise
3/4 C. creme fraiche or sour cream
4 oz. good quality creamy blue cheese, at room temperature
In a skillet, saute shallots in olive oil over medium-low, covered, until golden and carmaelized. This should take about 20 minutes.
Let shallots cool.
In a mixing bowl, blend mayonnaise and creme fraiche. Add softened blue cheese.
Mash mayo mixture and blue cheese together until smooth.
Stir in cooled, carmaelized shallots. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Cover and refrigerate until flavors mix, at least three hours, or up to two days. Best when made one day ahead.
