You and your friends will love this Small Batch Shallot Dip. Golden-brown shallots are mixed together with rich sour cream and mayo to create a sweet and savory dip that’s perfect for small celebrations.

Sweet and savory never tasted so good

Just call me the queen of dips. Seriously, dips are my favorite food! I love to serve them at big and small parties, bring them over to a friend's place, or just snack on one at home.

Unfortunately, leftover dip will often go to waste because there’s just so much of in one serving!

I promise that won’t be the case for this recipe. My Small Batch Shallot Dip makes just enough for a handful of people, plus it has the BEST flavor. It’ll be a miracle if you end up with leftovers!
