Dip: In a medium bowl combine all dip ingredients; stir to combine, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. 

Frites: In a large bowl add eggs and beat until frothy, set aside. In a medium bowl combine panko crumbs, Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese, thyme, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper; set aside. Line two baking sheets with aluminum foil and spray lightly with cooking spray. 

Dip vegetables in beaten egg and dredge in breadcrumb mixture.
