One Ton of Mayo

According to a friend, we’ve made what constitutes “a typical Costco miscalculation”. The exact size of the miscalculation: 1.8 L. Of Hellmann’s mayonnaise.

This means:

100 toasted tomato sandwiches, or . . .

7.5 chocolate cakes, or . . .

30 hair treatments, or . . .

15 each tuna, salmon and egg salads, or . . .

. . .  what else?

I’ll admit it: I have been making a lot of “Emergency Chocolate Cake” (my own cupcake version with chocolate chips), but this stuff expires in April of this year, and I don’t know if I can make enough cakes by then!

So, the question: what would you do with one ton of mayo? Or 1.8 L of the stuff, to be exact. Any ideas I’m missing for fabulous uses for mayo?

  1. Mayo in Chocolate Cake? Never heard of it. Hmmmmm…. I am not a mayo fan, I buy the little tiny jars, but might start making my own. The only time I use mayo is in Tuna salad (and most time I use plain yogurt). I like the tang of plain yogurt so much better than mayo. I use cream cheese on BLT’s and so much else.

    I know I am not much help.
    I would be interested to see what people come up with.
    I just remembered how about Devilled Eggs, or Quiche. I recall once a chef told me the key to fluffy scrambled eggs was to whip in a little mayo, not liking mayo I declined, but I wonder if it could be used in quiche.

  2. Mayo never expires. You would have to keep it for like…. 10 years to have it seriously go bad on you. 🙂

    But, if you are strapped for somthing to do with it.

    Send me a bunch of those chocolate cakes. Haha.

  3. I had one of those gargantuan size mayos, too…I made lots of ranch dressing…lots of tuna and chicken salad…and potato and macaroni salads. It went faster than I thought it would!
