Who is ready to watch some fall football? 🏈
If you’re going to be gathering around the TV this weekend with friends and family to cheer on your favorite teams, then you’re gonna want to be surrounded by some delicious food!
I always find it helpful to have very easy 5-minute recipe ideas on hand, like this French onion dip, so that you can easily go to the fridge and pantry to execute the perfect game day or holiday dip at your house in no time.
Blue cheese lovers will enjoy this cool and creamy dip!
I feel like adding a little blue cheese levels up traditional French onion dip and gives it a bit more sophistication or grown-up taste. The best part is it takes just a few minutes to make and you can pair it with any of your favorite veggies or chips.
I always keep an onion soup packet on hand in the pantry for easy ideas like this!
Tips for making the best blue cheese French onion dip:
- I always have dry herbs in the pantry, but feel free to add in fresh dill or parsley instead if you have that on hand! I like to top it with a few sliced green onions. but that’s totally optional.
- This yummy dip makes a fantastic dip for crispy chicken wings if you are serving those up too!
- Plain Greek-style yogurt can be a substitute for the sour cream in this recipe idea.
- Not a blue cheese fan? Omit it or try softened cream cheese or feta cheese crumbles instead.
- You can make this dip ahead of time as it gets even better the next day! Store any leftovers in a covered container for up to 5-7 days.

This looks great! I have some blue cheese I need to use up, so this is great timing! Thank you so much!
Lost me at onion soup mix. MSG & Sodium bomb.
Would you swap the same amount of cream cheese for the blue cheese 1/2 a cup?
Ya that sounds good!
I have made this over 8 times since I found the recipe over the summer. It is quick, easy and just delicious! Even some people who do not like blue cheese have tried this dip & said it wasn’t too bad. I add more than 1/2 cup of blue cheese if I’m making it for myself. It goes really good with plain potato chips, plain pretzels and veggies.
YAY! Thanks so much for letting us know about the blue cheese and how well you enjoyed this recipe! 🤗💕
