All my years eating mayonnaise in sandwiches and egg or tuna salad and it never occurred to me to learn what it actually was. It wasn’t until I watched a clip of popular TV chef Gordon Ramsay show exactly how simple it is to make mayonnaise. Did you know all mayonnaise is simply beaten eggs and oil? Yeah. That’s all it is. So when you have that egg and bacon sandwich slathered with mayo, you may actually be eating twice as many eggs in one meal! And you wonder why you put on so much weight.
But point being, if you are looking for a cheap calorie boost, and you don’t have eggs lying around, then why not make yourself a literal mayo sandwich? I’ve done it and it works wonders. And strange how a jar of mayo seems to last longer than a dozen of actual eggs doesn’t it? That’s because oil doesn’t rot. When you mix the oil in with the egg proteins (that actually can rot), then it changes the nature of it. Granted, you’re also eating a lot of oil too, but eggs be eggs. And the oil may actually make it taste better. It always makes your fast food sandwiches taste better!
So if you a po boy, go make yeself a mayo sandwich and not be ashamed about it. Trust me, it is literally THE SAME THING as eating egg sandwich!
