All of my Memphis friends are familiar with this dish, but it's so easy, so fail-proof, and so well-loved that I have to share it. This makes a fantastic appetizer for any event. You can also easily remember it off the top of your head: 3, 2, 1, 1/2.
Next time I make this, I'll be sure to take a picture. It's absolutely delicious!
3 8-oz packages of cream cheese, softened
2 cups parmesan cheese, grated
1 onion, diced (I usually use a medium-large white onion)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
Preheat oven to 350. Grease a pie plate, or similarly sized dish.
Mix all ingredients together (this works best in a stand mixer). Transfer to pie plate and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. I like for the top of mine to get brown, but most everyone else I know takes it out of the oven a little before then.
Serve hot with corn chips or melba toast.
