What would you make if Hellmann’s challenged you to create a game day spread and using a jar of mayo in the process? Well, I said challenge accepted and here is what I came up with. The Creamy Onion Dip recipe on their website kicks off the spread. As you will soon see, that was just the start of the adventure!
Creamy Onion Dip
Creamy Onion Dip is of course a staple of parties and has been for ages. You really can’t go wrong with this classic dip. It is super easy to make and most people enjoy it. The recipe requires only three simple ingredients and just five minutes to prepare. It goes great with veggies, chips or crackers. This dip really is a great place to start any game day spread.

Game Day Mayo Jar Challenge – Inspired by One Jar
Hellmann’s (and Best Foods) Mayonnaise is made with cage-free eggs, is rich in Omega 3-ALA, and made with real, simple ingredients: eggs, oil and vinegar. That seems like great recipe inspiration to me and as I found out, a 30 ounce jar goes further than you might think.
30 ounces equals 3 and 3/4 cups of mayonnaise. The Creamy Onion Dip used 1/2 a cup.
Then I made Popcorn Shrimp, by coating the shrimp in mayo to adhere the bread crumbs. This was a new recipe for me and I’m happy to report success. I’ve included directions to make the shrimp in either a standard oven or air fryer. The shrimp only took 1/4 cup of my jar to make.
I decided the shrimp would go great with some Yum Yum Sauce. So, I made a nice big batch of the sauce/dip. It is often known as a shrimp dip, but makes a nice alternative dip for vegetables as well. The sauce took 1 and 1/2 cups of my mayo jar.
Peeking into the jar, there was still quite a bit of mayonnaise in there. I knew I had to make another dish pronto, before my daughter started making her famous mayonnaise sandwiches with it. Jalapeno Popper Dip was my deliciously addictive grande finale! I used a cup of mayo in that recipe. Now there was just a little left at the bottom of the jar and I decided to let my daughter slather it on her multigrain bread, as she loves to do.
Mission accomplished and a scrumptious food fest to show for it!
