Our Favourite Mayonnaise variations

12 Aug

Mayonnaise is a staple in our house, like flour & sugar are in others. We use it on everything & I do mean everything.

We even dip our chips in it, as evidenced below – don’t knock it till you have tried it. Crunchy chips & creamy mayonnaise……..yum!

We make our own Mayonnaise using my homemade mayo recipe with 100% pure cold pressed extra virgin olive oil. While it doesn’t taste too great, it is much better for you than using vegetable oils which are potentially damaging to your health.

So while our Mayo is healthy it does have a very distinct olive oil flavour – nothing like the creamy sweet artificial stuff you buy from the supermarket. Coming up with unique & flavoursome ways to hide the tart almost spicy flavour of the olive oil so that “Miss Two” will eat my Mayo is a constant battle but the below Mayo variations meet with her approval & mine!

Adding honey to Mayo may seem a little strange but it helps to take the edge off the spiciness of the olive oil & make the Mayo smoother & less sharp – great for little people’s palates.
