Try This Super Bowl Spread: Onion & Sage Spread

Looking for an alternative to all the heavy, cream-based dips in the sea of Super Bowl snacks? Try this sweet and savory spread that goes great with rice crisps or wheat crackers. For extra sweetness, use sweet yellow onions (Walla Walla, Vidalia)

• 1 slice bacon, finely diced*
• 2 medium yellow onion, sliced thin
• 1/2 tsp sugar
• 1/4 tsp smoked salt**
• 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
• 1 tbsp finely shopped fresh sage
• freshly ground pepper
* Turkey bacon a good non-pork bacon substitute
** If using turkey bacon, smoked salt adds the extra smokiness you get from pork bacon.

1. Over medium heat, saute bacon until almost crisp.
2. Add onion, salt and sugar. 3. Cook until onions are caramelized, about 15 to 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
4. Stir in sage, vinegar and pepper; set aside. 5. Bring to room temperature before serving.
