Superbowl 50 is almost here which means it’s time to break out your best game day appetizers to impress your friends and expand your waistline for the weekend! Each year we make a killer hot french onion dip that disappears midway through the 1st quarter. This year we decided to kick it up a notch but STUFFING it into a garlic toasted french baguette! No more balancing a full plate of dip in one hand and scooping with the other. This is a “grab and go” dip. It’s Epic.
Our easy French Onion Dip is loaded with caramelized onions, 3 different cheeses and soft bread. While the sting of losing the San Diego Chargers is still fresh, we can eat our worries away, one slice at a time.
This is a reinvention of a vintage recipe almost every American ate in the 80’s. Game days at our home wasn’t complete without the Lipton French Onion dip. While their onion dip is much easier to make than our homemade french onion dip, it’s not as good AND it’s loaded with “ingredients” you probably shouldn’t eat.
STUFFED BAGUETTE NOTES:
We use these disposable Wilton Bags to pipe in the filling. Makes life MUCH easier.

This recipe is highly adaptable. Feel free to substitute Gruyere instead of Swiss or kick the cheese up to 1/2 cup vs 1/3. It’s your choice!
Vegan/Vegetarians- Omit the Worcestershire sauce and use vegetable stock in place of the beef stock.
