(very) high fat, low carb "dip" needed.

I'm trying to add a few hundred more calories into my diet, I figured the cheapest and easiest way to do this would be a dip I could eat with like asparagus or cucumber slices (or anything else low carb, open to suggestions)
Any recipes?
Open to other forms of food also, just figured a sauce/dip which are normally oil based would have highest fat concentration.

Ta, Wes

My first thoughts would be mayo, guacamole, etc. you can even blend them together! Also, not sure how this appeals to you but adding bacon grease, duck fat, butter will all help add some calories. I personally get sick from coconut oil and hate how it likes me feel even when my stomach tolerates it so I find myself using other fat sources such as these. Maybe play around with some nice oils as well. quality of the oil affects taste a lot. best oils are probably macadamia nut, olive, avocado…avoid corn oil, canola oil, etc. from the literature and studies I've read about the higher likely hood of rancidity and free radical formation of cheap vegetable oils.

How about an Alfredo sauce? I make mine with butter, sour cream, and parmesan cheese.

My grandma has always made garlic dip-- it's super easy and yummy. All you do is put some Philadelphia cream cheese, HWC, and Lawry's garlic salt and blend together until it has a consistency you like. It's really good for dipping veggies, but I've eaten it on other things too.

Onion dip is very simple - carton of sour cream, about a tablespoon of dried onion flakes, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, and a couple teaspoons of beef stock paste (from a jar) or a teaspoon of beef stock granules. Mix together and adjust seasonings to taste, then let it chill to blend everything for at least a couple hours.

Clam dip too - drain and reserve juice from a 6 oz. can of chopped clams. Soften 2 8-oz. packages of cream cheese. Add a little of the juice to the cream cheese and into the juice add a pinch each of garlic and onion powders, a teaspoon of Worcestershire, the juice of 1/2 lemon (I always end up adding the whole lemon's juice but start with 1/2 and taste), a dash or three of Tabasco, and blend til smooth. Add in the drained clams, stir, add more of the reserved liquid if needed. Refrigerate a couple hours, and the rest of the juice too, because it will thicken in the fridge and you can thin it back down with the reserved juice.

Something else I really like on my veggies - chipotle mayo. I use the Chipotle Tabasco but any chipotle sauce you prefer, plus mayo. If you don't have chipotle or don't like it, try Sriracha or any other hot sauce you do like. Mix up to taste and dip veggies in.

AND one last one I like - Asian-style - mayo, soy sauce, Splenda or other sweetener, pinch of dried or minced ginger, drizzle of toasted sesame oil, bit of rice wine vinegar or fresh lime juice. REALLY good on asparagus and as a dip for artichokes.

Yes. I like it better than heavy cream.

My vote is for guacamole too! Avocados are so darn healthy and have all of that good fat. So much nutritional bang for your buck - and delish!

ooh, avocados are expensive here (imo) plus I don't like them, I tried them a month or so back and found the texture slimey and the taste very sickly and "fat(y)" so they're out.

I'm loving the idea of a cheese-based sauce/dip though as one of my "meals" at the minute is just a block of cheese it's getting pretty boring so finding a way to blend this in would be great.

Pesto mixed with a little mayo would probably be as high fat as you could get without just melting butter on it

WOE: Thinking of trying NK
This was forwarded to me today - the original was posted on a blog called She Eats. Sounds yummy, hope to try it soon.

Savory Oozy Mushroom Dip
1 Lb Button Mushrooms, chopped into 1" pieces.
1 Sweet Onion, sliced.
2 Links of Chorizo or Spicy Sausage.
Handful of Fresh Thyme, stems removed.
6 Oz. Smoky Cheddar Cheese, grated.
4 Oz. Cream Cheese, room temp.
Handful of Fresh Parmesan, grated.
2 Tbsp Butter.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Coarse Sea Salt & Fresh Cracked Black Pepper.
Bread or Crackers to serve.

Instructions

Pre-heat your oven to 450 degrees F.
Place a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat and lightly grease a 9 X 9 glass baking dish, or 6 smaller ramekin sized ones.
As it heats, remove the casing from the chorizo. Drop in the hot pan with a small glug of olive oil, break into bits. Saute until cooked through (approx 4 to 5 minutes). Remove the chorizo with a slotted spoon into the prepared baking dish.
Add the mushrooms - and a little more oil if necessary - thyme, salt and pepper, stir well. Saute mushrooms until the liquid cooks out and they're golden (approx 8-10 minutes). Remove and set in the prepared baking dish.
In that same frying pan, add the butter. Melt. Toss in the onions. Turn the heat down to medium-low and season well with salt. Stir occasionally and cook until golden (approx. 20 - 25 minutes).
Dump the chorizo and mushrooms back into the pan, along with the cream cheese. Stir until melted and oozy.
Spoon half the mixture back into the prepared baking dish. Top with half the grated cheddar. Repeat. Finish with the Parmesan.
Place dish on a baking sheet (to catch any drips) and chuck in the oven for 10 minutes or until golden and bubbly on top.
Serve with bread or crackers.
Eat.

I make a dip with a 8 oz cream cheese, 4 oz blue or gorgonzola, 1 tsp dried minced onion, 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce and if you like prepared horseradish, 1-3 tsp of that. Better if it sits in the fridge overnight.

My grandmother used to make a fantastic dried beef dip every Christmas. I still make it, and it's one of the first things gone.

Nancy's Beef Dip

8oz cream cheese, softened
1 jar dried beef (I use Armour brand. Make sure to rinse thoroughly!), chopped
Grated onion, to taste
Grated bell pepper, to taste
2-3 tablespoons mayo

Mix all ingredients and bake at 350F for 30-40 minutes.
