Mayonnaise-Based Sauces

Using Mayo as the Basis of a Sauce

Mayonnaise is a great ingredient to use when sauce-making because it adds a rich flavor and lovely, creamy texture. Some mayonnaise-based sauces are very similar to mayonnaise-based salad dressings, but there is some crossover. You can make mayonnaise from scratch or use your favorite brand of readymade mayo, as you prefer. Add tomato, spices, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and cilantro to make a great sauce for chicken, or add honey, lemon and mustard if you are looking for a sauce for fish. Add horseradish and applesauce to make an incredible sauce for roast beef, or curry powder, lime and cayenne pepper if you want an unusual sauce for your cooked veggies.

Different Mayonnaise Sauces

Mayonnaise is a thick, creamy, egg-based condiment which can be served on burgers, sandwiches, salads, or combined with tuna or egg to make tasty mixture to go in buns or as a topping for baked potatoes. It also makes a wonderful base for making other sauces. Add tomato to make it into fry sauce, buttermilk, green onion and herbs to make ranch, ketchup, oregano and spices to make Argentinian golf sauce, and cream, brandy or whiskey and tomato to make marie rose sauce. There are plenty of other ideas too, and you can even invent your own mayonnaise-based sauces if you want to make something creamy and only spend a few minutes putting your lovely homemade sauce together.

Hello, I'm Christine. Thanks for dropping by and welcome to Amazing Sauces. Food is a very important part of our family's lives, and I find a homemade sauce often finishes a dish perfectly. Whether you are making something with chicken, beef, pork, vegetables, an appetizer, or even a dessert recipe, a sauce is often the ideal finishing touch.

You will find many sauce recipes here, all conveniently in one place, from the classics like tomato sauce, béchamel sauce and cheese sauce, to gravies, marinades, and unusual ideas for sauces too like ginger-plum sauce or gorgonzola sauce.

Some sauces can be drizzled over the meal, while others are best served on the side. Some will work as a dip or sauce, while others are great for basting, marinating or adding a splash of color to a recipe. Try our creamy gravies with your breakfast, one of our international steak marinades for a sophisticated spin on dinner, or learn how to make a classic béarnaise or rich red wine sauce to complement your dish.

Thanks for visiting,
