What is mayo even made of? Lard and Vinegar? Bleah.
There's more than one way to do it, just don't use my way.

    A lot of people here (my $here = "Utah";) mix one part mayo with one part ketchup to make what they call "Fry Sauce."

    It's actually not bad. I'm guessing there are people in other places do it too, but I don't live other places so it's hard for me to say. ;-)
      Here in sunny NYC we call that "Fraunch Dressing" we drink it with "Peru" ;)

        Fraunch fries and Peru, heh heh... "Gee Ricky, I'm real sorry your mom blew up!"

        Actually there is (at least used to be) a great Belgian-style frites place in the East Village on 2nd Ave at 7th St. Just a little hole in the wall called Pomme Frites, but they make these absolutely awesome double-fried potatos with dozens of sauces to choose from and serve them to you hot in a big paper cone for take-out. I fondly recall a spicy curry sauce and other pleasurable choices... mmmm...

        oh look somebody has a Web page about them...

      That mixture can be bought in jars, labelled "seafood sauce" or "seafood dressing". It's used to make prawn cocktail (Do you have that in Utah?) but anyone who knows makes it the way you do.

      -- iakobski

      I can confirm that we too in the far reaches of Las Vegas also eat fry sauce. Mmmm... fry sauce... I like the excitment of ordering fry sauce in a different place to see what extra ingridient they will mix in. (BBQ sauce, relish, "assorted spices")
      This makes me laugh to read - my wife went to BYU, and one time we were at dinner with some of our friends from Utah when one asked for some fry sauce - I'd never heard of it, and got this really confused look on my face and my wife just started laughing at me.

      Fry sauce is actually one of my favorite options, although I voted for the bacon double cheeseburger. ;)

      And that poutine stuff sounds just nasty. <shudders>

      Arctic Circle used to give little packets (like Sweet & Sour Sauce cups at KFC) called "Fry Sauce". Damn that stuff is good (you have to mix it in just the right consistancy and with the right ingredients -- not just random stuff that you have lying in the ice box).

      Too bad Arctic Circle is gone.

        The original arctic circle owner "invented" fry sauce in Utah according to some lame article I was reading on "utahnics".
      When I worked in a Japanese restaurant we made a wing sauce much like that...
      Ketchup, mayo, about 50 50, add tabasco and paprika to taste.
      Hum, I used to put that on salads and call it thousand-islandless (in reference to the fact that if it also had pickle relish it would be thousand island dressing.)

    Mayo is actualy an egg and oil (I believe it's only the yellow part of the egg - not sure - help!?)

    A righthanded-lefthand....
    "Field experience is something you don't get until just after you need it."
      In a cooking class, I learned to make mayonnaise with egg yolks, walnut oil, and wine vinegar. Mustard and garlic are excellent additions.

      Which was kind of a shock, because I had previously assumed that mayonnaise was one of the basic elements of the universe: earth, wind, fire, and mayonnaise.


      1 tbsp mustard (english is good) salt & pepper 2 egg yolks 1 1/4 cups oil (olive, sunflower..) 1 tbsp vinegar (white is good) * Beat together mustard, salt, pepper, and yolks. * Add oil a few drops at a time, beating into the egg mixture until fluffy (add until you have no more oil left or are bored) * Add vinegar a few drops at a time, beating into the egg and oil mixture until fluffy. This will cause the mixture to lighten in colour and smell and taste as mayonaise should. More vinegar can be added to taste. * Use within 5 days.

    The basic traditional ingredients are oil, eggs and salt. Then you add lemon juice or vinegar, and seasonings like paprika or mustard powder to taste. And it needs to be refrigerated.

    If you're squirting it from a plastic bottle, and it looks like jelly and tastes like acid, then it is not proper mayonnaise. Or it's gone off :-)
