If sandwiches were out, WWYD with an whole tub of Egg Mayo sandwich filler that goes out of date tomorrow?

You could put it in baked potatoes - I have seen this on menus in cafes.

Would it work in Vol au Vents (sp?)

Eat it with a spoon like ice cream, I love egg Mayo.

MrsRhettButler Mon 20-Jun-11 20:45:13

You buy it? Urgh, the shop bought one is disgusting! If it was homemade I would say yes, eat it with a spoon

fearnelinen Mon 20-Jun-11 20:45:53

Egg mayo on potatoes? Really? I have some 'nice ham' too, I could do that I suppose.

Do you think you can cook it? (zanz - I am ignoring you, you are either pregnant or sick wink !)

DirtyMartini Mon 20-Jun-11 20:46:44

Cook it? Nah.

Have it with salad, and some of your ham?

fearnelinen Mon 20-Jun-11 20:47:12

Give me a break, I had to cater for 100 children at the weekend - turns out I should have just done jam & crap ham!

Judgey over egg mayo?? Really?!

I love shopbought egg Mayo. My homemade always tastes wrong. Must be missing a vital e binder or summat. grin

I would dollop it in a plate with some salad, or jacket spud with lots Of black pepper on top. I wouldn't cook it.

Paschaelina Mon 20-Jun-11 20:52:03

E number

MrsRhettButler Mon 20-Jun-11 20:55:20

Oooh I'm not judging, if I liked it I'd buy it too! grin I just think it tastes funny....
And yh defo crap ham for kids the egg Mayo are always the ones left over, marmites good too

100 children? Goodness me!

MrsRhettButler Mon 20-Jun-11 20:56:31

Oh yes, back to the original question I think egg salad is the way to go if you don't want to go at it with a spoon

DurhamDurham Mon 20-Jun-11 20:58:46

Well if you wanted to be flash you could dollop some on to slices of ham and then roll the ham up....little homemade hors d'oeuvres.

That should silence the egg mayo snobs grin

fearnelinen Mon 20-Jun-11 21:12:56

Oh I likey!

Mrs Rhett, you are close to getting an invite round, I like to make 'homemade' curry (by 'made' I mean manufactured and by 'home' I mean a factory in Warrington) and then litter the kitchen with chilli shreds and chopped coriander. All my friends think I am a curry queen! Many, many of them sit at my table bauking at the thought of shop bought grin !

Posh hors d'oeuvres are winning...!

It is one of my secret vices, sofa, tv, eating egg Mayo(homemade=bigger portions).
Top tip, use a spring onion instead of spoon.

MrsRhettButler Mon 20-Jun-11 21:49:15

I've just made some egg mayo and had a sandwich mmmmmm yummy

grin @ 'homemade' curry! You should admit it to your friends for the pure pleasure of seeing their faces!

EightiesChick Mon 20-Jun-11 21:51:42

Yep, go with the jacket potato or the salad idea. Salad-style it would be reminiscent of those 'egg mayonnaise' starters from the 70s/80s. Almost vintage, really.

zanz1bar the spring onion spoon is genius! <takes hat off>

fearnelinen Mon 20-Jun-11 22:45:35

MrsRhett I shall when I am 90 and wearing purple. I like the pretence for now. I also enjoy 'roughing up' shop bought cakes for school fairs!

I have decided to lay a bed of lettuce, surround by cucumber (forked down the side for effect), spread the egg in the middle, add a small cherry tomato border and sprinkle with paprika and parsley. Serve with new pots and ham.

Little linens are getting some retro tomorrow! I may even whip up some angel delight!

zanz1bar Tue 21-Jun-11 07:30:41

Only butterscotch will do.

MrsRhettButler Tue 21-Jun-11 09:16:44

<runs to the shops for angel delight>
