For those that did not know, I am plagued with the disease “Loving Sandwich’s”, especially on great bread and grilled or straight out of the Panini Press, where the cheese ooze’s out onto the grill and gets cooked all on its own ( you know what I am talking about). Sandwich’s anymore are not just PB&J or Tuna, They are “GOURMET” and I love them, they get the WOW Factor from me when I see them. So I am sharing with you some Mayo’s that will make your Sammy fall into the WOW categorie.
- 1 c. Mayo
- 10-15 Fresh Basil leaves, rolled up and chopped
- 1 t. salt
- 1/4 t. pepper
- 1 t. fresh lemon juice
- 1 T. olive oil
- 1 t. minced garlic
Place all ingredients in your food processor and run until well blended. Place in a glass jar and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
✽ I save all my jars for all kinds of uses, I think the mayonnaise’s taste better stored in glass then in plastic.
This Mayo. is great on Turkey Sammy’s, Hamburgers, Wraps, Dip for your French Fries or Kettle Chips. Anywhere you use Mayo try this one next. I am a Big Basil Lover, its one Herb that I can grow here in the Desert so I REALLY love this.
ROASTED RED ONION MAYO:
- 1 medium red onion, chopped
- 2 t. olive oil
- Salt & Pepper
- 1 c. Mayo
Preheat oven to 375. On a small rimmed baking sheet, toss the red onion, olive oil, salt & pepper together. Roast in the oven for 25-30 minutes until the onion is very soft, stirring occasionally. Remove from oven and let cool. Transfer to a food processor and buzz until finely chopped, add mayo and pulse until smooth and combined. Store in one of your favorite glass jars ( the cuter the better) in frig. for about 1 week.
Once again use this Mayo on any of your favorite Sammy’s, Hamburgers (yum) or maybe some salads, I have never tried that. Here is one Sandwich that this is excellent on.
Grilled Apple, Bacon & Cheddar Sandwich w/ Red Onion Mayo
- 2 slices favorite bread, I choose Sourdough ( thick and hearty are good choices)
- 4 slices thick-cut bacon ( I like Trader Joes Applewood Bacon)
- 2-4 slices Cheddar
- 1/2 Granny Smith apple, cored & sliced thin
- Roasted Red onion Mayo
Fire up your Grill pan or Panini press, Assemble by spreading 1 slice of bread with mayo, then top with 2 slices cheddar cheese, the bacon, the apple slices, then 2 more slices of cheddar, finishing with another mayo-slathered slice of bread. Butter or use olive oil on outside of bread and transfer to hot grill. I say about 3 minutes per side or nicely toasted since the sandwich is so thick. Remove to your cutting board, slice in half and enjoy all to yourself or share with your loved one. I love, love, love Sandwich’s, just like my Mom and we think this one is a winner.❤
