Meatless Monday - Hot Onion Dip

Book Club Party, originally uploaded by s_ripperton.

This week's recipe isn't a main dish or even a side dish (though I have been known to eat leftovers of it for dinner). It's a very tasty, thoroughly meat-free dip that is perfect for bringing to a party. It's also stupidly easy to make. So if you have any March Madness parties to attend, consider whipping this up instead of chicken wings or meatballs. No one will miss them, I promise.

The following will make 3 cups of dip.

1 cup finely chopped sweet onion (Vidalia or the like)
1 cup mayo
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, fresh is best, but the kind from the can is good, too
Paprika for garnish

Preheat oven to 350.

In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients, except paprika. Spoon into a ceramic or glass pie plate and smooth to level the surface.

Put in oven and bake 35-40 minutes until hot and bubbling. Sprinkle with paprika and serve with crackers, tortilla chips or crudites.
