Ok. I didn't want to hijack Lodi's thread, so here I am opening the debate: Miracle Whip vs. Mayonaise

I stand by Miracle Whip.

Mayo??? B.O.R.I.N.G. !!!!!!!

I should be so ashamed to stir up this hornet's nest!

There are some class differences here.

That's what I hear, but I don't believe it.

wrong con. Really though, who would prefer Miracle Whip? Nasty, IMO.

Miracle whip tastes like somebody took some perfectly good mayo and added some a$$ to it.

Miracle Whip for tuna salad, chicken salad, egg salad, Layered Lettuce Salad, and certain sandwiches (liverwurst, BLT, Buddig meats, and cotto salami). Hellman's Real Mayonnaise for Puffy Chicken, hot ham on rye sandwiches, homemade tartar sauce, and all other sandwiches.

Now here's a topic I feel strongly about.

Miracle Whip

I am "famous" in my large extended family for a whole bunch of dishes - one of them is Potato Salad. Many folks have asked for the recipe, and I've given it to all of them. They come back to me, and say that when they make it, it just doesn't taste the same - doesn't taste as good. I ask them if they used Miracle Whip, as I had written in the recipe. Their answer - "Oh no, I use Mayonnaise". So I tell them that they have to use Miracle Whip. "But I don't like Miracle Whip", they say. And then they add "But how can I get my potato salad to taste like yours?".


I was brought up on Miracle Whip, and am sticking to it.

Mayonnaise. Miracle Whip is slick and slimy and it tastes funky.

Anybody else use mayonnaise on the bread for making a grilled cheese instead of butter? Fabulous!

I'm with Bigbird - I grew up on Miracle Whip - my mom's potato salad is the best in the world - she uses the same secret ingredient.

I think Hellmans is the same as our Best Foods, which is the only mayo I'll buy.

And I can pull up a bite of someone's potato or macaroni salad and recoil if I taste Miracle Whip vs. mayo. I've never tried the grilled cheese like that. So you mayo the outside of the sammich and grill it?

Miracle Whip!

Mayo would contaminate a perfectly good grill cheese sandwich.

Smoke  (Level: 96.7 - Posts: 12009)
Sun, 2nd Aug '09 8:28 AM

Yep, mayo the outside instead of butter. Doesn't burn as easy, browns real pretty and it's less greasy. Doesn't taste like mayo at all, just a really good grilled cheese. I was taught to make them that way by my Home Ec teacher in 1961, and no complaints so far.

Nothing but Miracle Whip..for me!

It depends on what I am making. I ALWAYS use Hellmann's for making chicken salad. In my potato salad, I use both....sounds strange but it absolutely balances it for some reason. (I've even had someone tell me that my potato salad was
"better than Luby's" bwahahaha) So I always have both of them in my house. How bout that for being on both sides???

Side note....the chicken salad? Shredded chicken breasts , Hellman's, diced celery and freshly ground pepper. That is all and it is fabulous. Promise. Lots of celery.

Yeah, Best Foods and Hellmans are the same. They even have the same jingle "Bring out the Hellmans (Best Foods) and bring out the best". It's the only mayo.

I can't let Marsha's comment stand.
Clearly a giant mistake of nature; good for nothing execpt spoiling bloody marys.

That, coconut and pineapple make up the unholy trilogy. (You can toss in corn on the cob too)

Ducks smartly to avoid the hail of ordure about to be thrown.

Miracle Whip, all the way. Mayo will do in a pinch, but only if nothing else available!

I use Miracle Whip Lite for health reasons. But I am with Felix...Mustard is #1.

I'm a mustard gal. Dijon and spicy brown.

Sun, 2nd Aug '09 11:29 AM

Well of course I like mustard too. Good grainy mustard. None of that yellow stuff. I just started a serious diet - so why do you now have me lusting after pretzels with good mustard?

Slicko  (Level: 223.9 - Posts: 1609)
Sun, 2nd Aug '09 11:36 AM

What the heck is wrong with corn on the cob Barry?? And while a steady diet of coconut and pineapple might be a bit much - they do have their place. Now that celery thing is another story. Won't even bother with it when I'm having Buffalo wings.

I think I'll go whip up a grilled cheese sandwich. I wonder how that will work with Miracle Whip on the outside?

Vegennaise! (The one made with grapeseed oil.) Yum!

Grew up with Hellmann's, which was OK. Not sure I've ever had Miracle Whip.

But, seriously, try the Vegennaise with the purple label. You'll never go back. I find I plan my lunches around what will require it

Koota and Bigbird, BIG ditto to everything you said.

Mayo to me is totally flavorless goo.

Sun, 2nd Aug '09 12:29 PM

Aioli !!!!!

That's garlic mayonnaise - whatever you put it on tastes good.

Got my corn on the cob fix in the States, Barry, but I'll be missing it again very soon.

Celery - now the recipes make me buy a branch every now and then to prepare a poaching broth, but I agree that it has very limited application. And Jank just wrote to me about a celery relative called cardoon which is equally unmemorable.

Hellman's Mayo for sandwiches but I use both MW and Mayo in most salads, along with a bit of sour cream.

Jank0614  (Level: 67.1 - Posts: 4593)
Sun, 2nd Aug '09 12:52 PM

Not so unmemorable for the lady who had them! She told me quite an interesting story surrounding that celery dish that ended in a date with a handsome French dignitary.

Most definitely Miracle Whip. That's all we used when I was growing up. I find mayo boring.

I grew up with Miracle Whip because my mother used it for everything and I didn't even know Best Foods even existed until I met my husband. He grew up with Best Foods and didn't know what Miracle Whip was so I converted to mayo and haven't gone back. I do miss my moms bean salad though and you can't use mayo in that.

It's mayo for me, I don't care for miracle whip at all. Only Hellman's will do. I will only eat mayo in a salad, can't stand it on a sandwich. I hate drippy salads too. Grosses me out. I'm more of a mustard fan myself.

Down here the mayo is Blue Plate. Made locally and YUM! I put it on everything.

Hubbie, nothing. On anything is his cup of tea. No mayo, no Mir. Whip, no mustard, no ketchup, no nuttin.

I could eat Blue Plate out of the jar!

But......the best?????? Raisin' Cane's chicken finger sauce!!!! Don't know what's in it but YUM

But the truth is, don't get me started on Ranch dressing - Kraft. There should be a statue to the stuff.

Salad was invented to keep you from embarrassing yourself by drinking the stuff.

I've made my own mayo before. Its easy - egg yolks & oil in a blender. Its pretty cool to watch it turn to mayo. Then you can add anything else you want - salt, pepper, garlic, mustard, jalapeno, etc.

It's Paul Newman's Creamy Caesar I don't need a salad for. Awesome potato chip dip.

Sweet Vidalia Onion Dressing- Ken's Steakhouse brand. The only salad dressing I have used at home for three years. Never have found it in a restaurant though.

Been a Miracle Whip kid my whole life. I do use mayo in some recipes, though. Switched to MW light to lower our fat intake, but it did terrible things to my world famous potato salad, cole slaw and seafood salad. (Okay, maybe not world famous...) I'd rather have a little less of anything made with regular MW than light anyday...

Miracle Whip, even Lite, but for potato salad, macaroni salad it's Dukes ("the secret of great Southern cooks"). Miracle Whip and iceberg lettuce on white bread makes one hell of a "munchie" sandwich!

I won't eat it if it has Miracle Whip on it......must be BEST FOODS!
