    Default OMG: a mayonnaise for the BLT!!

    I am just reading this new cookbook, called FAT.

    I just came across a recipe the perfect BLT.

    It uses a bacon mayonnaise. The recipe uses liquid bacon fat.
    Otherwise, it looks like a standard mayo recipe.

    I have to try this....

    That just sounds so wrong, yet sounds so good.

    I'm conflicted ...

    Actually, the body needs fat. It is not all bad for you..and pig fat
    has much less saturated fat than you would expect.

    The fat is bad for you argument is starting to lose favor...and new
    studies are showing that the culprits are really simple carbs. Fat is
    starting to look good in a lot of circles..and not just in culinary
    ones.

    Again, one of the keys is moderation.

    I think a BLT with "normal" mayo provides sufficient bacon flavor for me, so
    using bacon mayo there might be bacon overload. I can definitely see using
    bacon mayo in deviled eggs or potato salad, though.

    But why make it, when you can just buy it? :-^)

    If you wanted that effect, you could save the bacon grease, and use a
    brush to put it on your bread before toasting (or grilling, or frying).
    BTW, I'll vouch for those silicon brushes. Not only do they perform
    the same job as the traditional ones, they are much easier to clean. I
    bought them for use during grilling, but I use them for many other
    things now inside in the kitchen.

    I always save my bacon grease in a jar in the fridge for making fried
    eggs, green beans, bean soup without bacon, etc. The bacon grease lasts
    forever, and just waits to share some bacon love in your cooking. Bread?
    Grilled cheese? A TB in your sausage and sauerkraut? Add to your cheddar
    type fondue? Let your experimentation grow.

    Why do we want to make anything that we could just buy? Quality?
    Expense? You know what goes into the product? You probably have more
    examples...as you do this all the time..in terms of making you could
    just buy.
    It's just not the same...sometimes the storebought product is way
    inferior....

    ":-^)" is the "tongue-in-cheek" emoticon.

    Baconnaise has never been a product I'd be interested in buying. I shudder
    just thinking about it.

    Sorry..I just entirely missed it..LOL.

    Yes. I can't imagine buying it...

    I am interested in trying it..just to see what it might add to
    something. I probably could think of other things to use it on....

    Great idea for the use of the bacon/mayo on deviled eggs, but if you
    keep the bacon grease from you bacon frying, you could add a little bit
    of that to the yolk mix instead.

    I have almost a dozen picked eggs ready to eat now. If I slice them in
    half, pull the yolk to mash with a bit of onion powder, paprika, salt &
    FGB, might as well add a TB or two of bacon grease (warmed) to the mix
    when adding a little mayo. Don't know what the flavor difference will be
    with them being pickled, but it will be even more interesting since the
    eggs were pickled with beet slices.

    Me too. All the health risk of bacon without
    the crispy goodness. I'll take the crisp-fried
    bacon, and anyone else can have the fat.

    I once poured the bacon fat from a batch
    of bacon into a teacup to solidify for
    disposal and left it on the kitchen counter.
    When I came back, the teacup was on the floor
    and the small amount of remaining fat had
    pawmarks corresponding to that of my favorite
    cat. He couldn't fit his head into the teacup.
    I really miss that cat.

    You know what doesn't go into the product?
    Bacon. Look on the ingredients panel.
    It's like one of those powdered lemonade mixes that contain no lemon
    juice.

    > It's just not the same...sometimes the storebought product is way
    > inferior....


    As is ALWAYS the case with mayo. At least the Baconnaise doesn't have
    egg whites in it, but look at all the other crap.

    bacon.

    It has none of either. It has <0.5 grams saturated fat, no
    appreciable trans fat, and absolutely no bacon fat whatsoever in it.
    None. I guess they figure that anyone who thinks that jarred mayo is
    acceptable is rather undiscriminating, and not the sort who reads
    ingredients.

    My grandmother saved bacon grease and I got away from it for most of my life
    until I moved to the South. The wife keeps a jar of it that we replenish
    whenever we make bacon. But I'm not comfortable leaving it out so we keep
    the jar in the fridge.... and I am not a fan of the tiny burnt bits in the
    grease, so every once in a while we'll let it sit out and nuke it for a few
    seconds until liquid. The bits and pieces fall to the bottom and the jar
    goes back into the fridge.

    We love the stuff.

    I've had ribs in a kosher chinese restaurant. They were beef. Wouldn't
    surprise me if they would make something bacon-like. Googling I saw
    duck bacon, soy bacon, lamb bacon.

    Mom used to strain and add pan bacon and chicken fats to a bottle in the
    fridge she'd use for future fat-in-the-pan usage, little to my knowledge as
    a kid.

    One day I was really thirsty and I saw the bottle and I thought it was iced
    tea. I filled a glass with some, somewhat puzzled by the slow pour. One sip
    and I knew I'd made a BIG mistake!!! YEEUCK!!!!!!

    Why would people have to be CONVERTS to Judaism or Islam? Why wouldn't they
    appreciate such a product even if they were Jewish or Islamic from birth?

    At any rate, such a product does exist, at least in Kuwait. The English term
    for it is "breakfast beef."
