I am torn over this.
Freerepublic.com has the smartest people in the world.
If you were to make the best BLT in the world tonight, what would you use?
I am quite serious about this.
Mayo, must be Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise.
Always Hellman’s in this house!
You may want a nice slice or two of avocado also :-)
In the West, Best Foods mayonaisse, in the East Helman’s Mayonaisse. Both the same product but have to use different names for some reason on either side of the country.
Love it like no other. Can eat it off a spoon.
The rest of the sandwich, I leave to others. But it isn’t bad with avocado instead of lettuce...;)
in the West, it’s Best foods!
Miricle whip is barf in a jar!
That’s right - not olive oil or canola oil or light or whatever other yuck stuff to save the calories - after all, you got bacon on a BLT, so why worry about that ;o)
By the way, the mayo they sell under the Aldi brand is actually Best Brand Mayo, which is the manufacturer of Hellmann’s. It is indistinguishable from Hellmann’s and much less expensive.
Miracle Whip. Fresh farmer’s market beefsteak tomato, and thick cut bacon.
I am torn over that!
Id say lots of bacon....
U get to pick how you want to disguise the flavor!
The One. The Only. The Best.
Hellmann’s real Mayonnaise.
I was raised on Miracle Whip. When I was eighteen I tasted Hellmann’s for the first time. Taste Nirvana.
I still can’t believe my parents deprived me of real taste all those years, and fed us kids that crappy tasting Miracle Whip.
Yes, but even the smartest people in the world, can't tell you your personal taste preference.
Hellmans, also known as...I forget the name, west of the mighty Miissiissiippii
MW for deviled ham and occasionally tuna. Nurse Christine says for devised eggs as well. For BLT no contest... Mayo!
Add a dash of Worcestershire sauce to Hellmans mayo. Gives it a nice tangy flavor, especially in tuna fish.
So is Hellmans the conservative spread of choice?
Is Miracle Whip a liberal indicator?
Should I start shunning Miracle Whip users from my life?
Miracle Whip original for BLT since the 40’s, has a little more “kick” to it. I buy and keep on hand both that and Hellman’s for other recipes.
I am surprised that you are indecisive about this. Most persons like one and hate the other. I can’t stand the taste of Miracle Whip. It is real mayonnaise or I wont eat it. Same is true for real butter and sugared soft drinks. Can’t stand butter and sugar substitutes. In my opinion A BLT without mayonnaise is not a BLT>
Same thing with ice cream: Edy’s east of the Mississippi, and Dreyer’s Grand west of it (I think).
Autocorrect sucks. The first time it changed deviled into defiled; the second, devised, both good alternatives but incorrect.
My sister uses Miracle Whip in her potato salad. I use mayonnaise and a little bit of yellow mustard. I think mine is the best!
Of course the answer is mayonnaise. What is wrong with you?
Let me put it this way, if you wanted waffles, would you buy the frozen ones you pop in the toaster or would you mix up the batter and cook them yourself.
Conservatives do not consume toaster waffles and they only use real mayonnaise.
Miracle Whip is much too sweet.
Best Foods Mayonaise.
Miracle Whip, no contest.
I love the sandwich on dill bread, lightly toasted, and with a thin slice of pepperjack cheese.
Raised on Best Food’s but Blue Plate and Duke’s is pretty good. Heard good stuff about Cain’s up in Maine too.
Here is your answer:
In its most authentic form, mayos a pretty simple affair: raw egg yolks, oil, lemon juice or vinegar, and spices. Not much room for improvement.
In 1933, Kraft Foods thought differently. Inventor Charles Chapmans patented emulsifying machine allowed regular mayonnaise to be evenly blended with cheaper dressings and more than 20 different spices (plus sugar). The result was Miracle Whip, which debuted at the 1933 Chicago Worlds Fair. Promising to create “Salad Miracles with Miracle Whip Salad Dressing,” the Whip was an instant hit (Note: Its not known if the dressing is responsible for any non-salad-related miracles.)
The main difference between Miracle Whip and mayonnaise are the sweeteners: high-fructose corn syrup and sugar are the fourth and fifth ingredients, respectively, of Miracle Whip.
Absolutely, Hellman’s mayo. Each brand has a slightly different flavor and I like Hellman’s best..also for my tuna salad sandwich.
I grew up on Miracle Whip. If I NEVER EVER see another jar of that junk it’ll be too soon.
I just never gave it much thought until tonight. I just bought whatever was on sale.
*ducks and runs*
This is one of those questions without resolution.
This is along the lines of asking -— Ginger, or Mary Anne.
Some will say they always wanted Ginger, and others will reject Ginger, in spite of her alluring nature, and go right for Mary Anne.
Make your own mayonnaise. It’s easy plus you become French. OK forget that. It’s the best mayonnaise. Just don’t try to keep it after you make your batch. It has raw eggs and I need not say more.
And salt and pepper your tomatoes. I'm partial to butter lettuce, but romaine will do in a pinch.
And if I add a slice of swiss or cheddar (heretical, I know), I like a good swipe of dijon mustard too.
In Virginia, Duke’s is the best!
Well, there can’t be too much wrong with you, you are a FReeper after all. If this helps, Obama prefers Miracle Whip.
Had to put up with that Miracle crap during the 50's during hard times because it was cheaper than Hellman's. Swore I'd never touch that crap again.
Miracle Whip, mayonnaise is gross.
Even the generic store brands that knock off Miracle Whip are better that any mayonnaise. ;-)
