I am fully aware of how this sounds, but I only eat homemade mayo. It’s partially a budget thing and partially out of convenience—even in large quantities, mayo is incredibly cheap and easy to make — but more than anything else, it’s about flavour. Homemade mayo will always taste fresher and just plain better than anything you can get out of a jar.
Chicken, tuna, and egg salad sandwiches can inspire two wildly different sets of emotions. They’re either deliciously restorative and nostalgic, or sad, boring, and reminiscent of bleak desk lunches (similar to fluorescent lighting). The key components never change — it’s the details that make these sandwiches great.
Video: There is only one correct way to “dispose” of bacon grease, and that is by consuming it. While it is a fantastic frying oil — especially for eggs and bread — it also makes a superb mayonnaise, a rich and salty compound butter, and a truly transcendent salad dressing.
It seems that, in an attempt to rebrand mayonnaise, various hip food establishments insist on calling all sorts of creamy condiments “aioli”. I refuse to stand idly by, letting this go unchecked. Aioli is not, as some would have you believe “fancy mayo”. Aioli is its own, very specific thing, and it is amazing.
When it comes to burgers, I prefer to keep things simple. A thin, smashed patty; a good melty cheese; maybe a little onion, tomato and pickles. I don’t need fried eggs, avocado or super thick bacon. I am, however, very into the idea of cheese mayonnaise, which frankly streamlines my already simple burger even further.
If you're allergic to eggs, just don't like mayonnaise, or tired of the same old recipes, pasta and potato salads may seem firmly off the menu, but substituting tahini for mayo will give you a creamy, extremely flavorful salad, no mayo needed.
