4 Recipes That Actually Taste Better With Mayonnaise
Sisig for example!
When we talk about pantry essentials, we refer to items that are part and parcel to making easy, fast, and tasty dishes from scratch. While you need the basics for flavor—salt, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, and spices like black pepper—you also need enhancers for texture. A spoonful of butter on those pancakes, a generous pour of olive oil for that crispy sunny-side up, and a generous dollop of mayonnaise for, well, just about everything.
Take a look at these dishes—both sweet and salty—that are rounded out by an underdog in the kitchen: Mayonnaise. Believe us, this ingredient is a must for every Filipino kitchen.
1 Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Here's something that you've probably never done before: Use mayonnaise in place of butter when making grilled cheese sandwiches! Mayonnaise is oil-based, which means it's the perfect ingredient for getting crisp edges around your sandwich. Spread a generous amount of mayonnaise on the outer sides of your sliced bread before frying it on a non-stick cooking pan with a light drizzle of oil. The result: a crisp, golden-brown sandwich with all the rich and creamy flavors of cheese and mayo.
