But we want them to stay great and you can easily do that with just a few variations. Flavored mayo’s being a really easy way to change it up. Don’t go out and buy those expensive pre-made one’s, what a total waste money. Get some small containers, some inexpensive mayo and whip up a few of these. Depending on your ingredients they will keep in the fridge for weeks.
The great thing about whipping up your own flavored mayo is you can add more flavoring or less depending on your tastes.
All of these recipes are to be added to 1 cup mayo. Whisk all ingredients well and then store in airtight containers in the fridge.
Great for both turkey or ham sandwiches
2 Tbsp dijon mustard
1 Tbsp fresh chopped dill or 1 tsp dried dill
I love this on turkey or prime rib
3 Tbsp horseradish
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
About Thyme Mayo
1 Tbsp fresh thyme
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp sage
1/2 tsp salt
Grind all spices in a food processor to break up any large pieces.
Honey Mustard Mayo
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp mustard of choice, can be standard, stone ground, dijon, etc
2 Tbsps Frank’s hot sauce
1 Tbsp crumbled blue cheese
This recipe will only keep a week or so because of the fresh blue cheese.
1 1/2 Tbsp pesto
1 Tbsp shredded parmesan
Again, this recipe won’t keep as long because of the parmesan cheese.
Sun Dried Tomatonaise
1/4 cup well drained sun dried tomatoes, chopped
1 small clove garlic
Process these two ingredients in food processor so the ingredients are fine. Then mix with the mayo.
1 chipotle chilies, if using canned then drain well and dice. If using dried, let
This recipe should sit for minimum of 4 hours and then be stirred again before using so the chili powder combines well with the mayo.
Spicy Ginger Mayo
1 tsp finely minced fresh ginger OR 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 small green onion, finely chopped
1/4 tsp chili sesame oil
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 Tbsp diced pickled jalapeno
Basically any of your favorite ingredients can be added to mayo for a quick sandwich perk up. I love to use the low fat mayo to help keep my sandwiches a little healthier. Since I’m spicing the mayo up I don’t notice that the flavor of the mayo isn’t as good as the full fat stuff. The spices do a great job of hiding the slightly sweet flavor.
