The funny thing about mayonnaise is that I always hated it as a kid. For some reason, I could never get on board with the flavor.
Nowadays, as an adult, I am full-fledged, car carrying mayo lover. If it wasn’t so high in calories, I’d eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon. In fact, my love for mayo has led me to get a little experimental in making my own, homemade mayonnaise recipes.
Recently, I tried making a cholesterol free version, using just the egg white instead of the whole egg. And I used less oil.
For an added kick, I added some chopped up chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. This turned out to be the BEST DECISION EVER. I cannot even begin to tell you how good this is. I’m actually eating a grilled ham and cheese sandwich right now, with some of this Homemade Chipotle Cholesterol Free Mayonnaise because just writing about it was driving me mad.
I needed to eat it…NOW. Super easy to make, and though it’s not as low in calories as I wanted it to be, it is still cholesterol free and absolutely delicious. Treat yourself!
