The average American will eat 2,400 calories of junk food. Just as a reference point, 2,400 calories are equal to a slice of pizza, four cans of beer, one serving of chicken wings, one serving of fried chicken, a portion of nachos with a slice of cheese cake, a milkshake and fries. I plan to eat all of the above this weekend! lol

If you don't know what kind of dip to make for this weekend, here are two different recipes for your party!

Here are the recipes for both:



For the homemade mayonnaise:
- 1 large egg yolk
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 1 cup vegetable or canola oil
- Kosher salt

For the dip:
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 5 medium onions, halved and thinly sliced
- 1 large garlic clove, minced
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup sour cream
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1 teaspoon chopped cilantro, for garnishing
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika, for garnishing
- Potato chips, for serving


Melt the butter and oil in a large pan. Add the onions and cook over high heat, stirring frequently, until just softened and beginning to brown, about 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and cook until the onions are golden and softened, about 20 minutes, continuing to stir frequently. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.

Make the mayonnaise: Place egg yolk, water, lemon juice, and mustard in the bottom of an immersion blender cup. Pour oil on top and allow to settle for 15 seconds. Place head of immersion blender at bottom of cup and switch it on. As mayonnaise forms, slowly tilt and lift the head of the immersion blender until all oil is emulsified. Season mayonnaise to taste with salt.

In a standing mixer fitted with the paddle, beat the cream cheese at medium speed until smooth. Beat in the mayonnaise and sour cream. Roughly chop the onion and fold it into the cream cheese mixture and season generously with salt and pepper. Scrape into a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until chilled.

Sprinkle with the parsley and cilantro and serve with potato chips.
