Mayo 5 Ways

Today has been a super fun day.  It's been one of those days where all the household chores are done, my hubby is at school and so I get to hang in the kitchen and create kind of day.  I have loved it!  

In my little creative cooking day I have come up with 3 recipes that I think will add a splash of flavor to a variety of different meals.  3 great condiments to go with anything!  I promise you will find a use for each of them.  Here's the first...
2 egg yolks
1 tsp. Dijon Mustard
4 tsp. Lemon juice
1 cup Vegetable oil
Salt and Pepper

Mix all of those ingredients in a food processor to get your basic mayo.  That is what we are working with today.  Now that you have your mayo made, I'm going to give you 5 new mayo ideas to spice up the regular white stuff  :)

1. Garlic Mayo
In your food processor add to your mayo
2 minced Garlic cloves
Mix the minced garlic with your mayo that you just made from the ingredients above and use on Sandwiches, panini's anything that you like a little garlic kick to.

2. Red Pepper Mayo
In your food processor add to your mayo
1 jarred roasted red Pepper that has been patted dry
and 2 minced garlic cloves
This mayo makes an amazing spread for BLT sandwiches, great for covering a tortilla and then grilling with cheese to make a red pepper quesadilla.  Yum!

3. Herb Mayo
In your food processor add to your mayo
3/4 cup Freshly chopped Herbs of your choice
This makes a great spread for any sandwich, but it's amazing on an italian panini.

4. Caesar Mayo
Add to your mayo
2 minced anchovies
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
This is great when mixed with extra virgin olive oil to make a dressing on your salad.  It's also a great spread for baked chicken.  Take the spread and spread over chicken breasts, and place in the oven at 350 for about 35 minutes.  YUM!

5. Tartar Mayo
In your food processor add to your mayo
2 Tbs. Cornichons
2 Tbs. finely chopped Onion
This is a great spread for fish.  Fish tacos, fish fillets, fish sandwiches, anything with fish and this mayo is amazing!

So there you go!  Mayo 5 ways.  It's just fun to dress up a regular condiment and find new and yummy uses for it!  Enjoy!
