Homemade French Onion Dip

I like to make simple, homemade versions of traditional Thanksgiving foods. One of the easiest things to make was onion dip. The Good Husband will eat an entire container and bag of chips in one sitting, if allowed. So instead of buying a container at the store, I wanted to make my own this year.

With everything else I had to cook this year, this one was actually one of the easier ones.

1 tablespoon vegetable oil 
2 cups thinly sliced onion 
2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage leaves 
3/4 cup mayonnaise 
3/4 cup sour cream 
1 teaspoon salt 
1 teaspoon ground black pepper 
Potato chips, for serving 

~Heat oil in heavy medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onions and sage. Cover and cook until onions are deep golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes.

~Remove from heat and let cool. Whisk together mayonnaise and sour cream in a medium bowl to blend. Stir in the cooled caramelized onions, salt, and pepper. Cover dip and refrigerate until flavors blend, about 2 hours.
