Spicy Mayo: How To Use Hot Mayonnaise in Your Kitchen

Mayonnaise can be a polarizing condiment. Many people love it for its creamy, thick texture and unique taste. Others may feel differently about mayonnaise, but we're betting it's because they haven't experienced luxury truffle spicy mayonnaise.

Today, we're going to explore all the ways spicy mayonnaise can break the mold and how you can use it in your dishes to add unique flavor and spice. Then, we'll introduce you to our favorite luxury mayonnaises you can make a part of your kitchen.

What Is Spicy Mayonnaise?

If you've never heard of spicy mayonnaise before, let us explain it. It has all the creaminess of standard mayonnaise with added heat to make the flavor more interesting. To understand it further, first, let's talk about the typical ingredients in one cup of mayonnaise:

  • Egg yolk
  • Vinegar (or lemon juice, lime juice, or another acid)
  • Sesame oil, olive oil, or another cooking oil

These primary ingredients are the foundation for the emulsion that is mayonnaise. Spicy mayonnaise can feature a few different ingredients that add spiciness. The most common is spicy sriracha, an Asian chili sauce, but some people also use garlic chili sauce or a cayenne-based hot sauce to create a delicious spicy mayo recipe.

What Is the Difference Between Spicy Mayonnaise and Aioli?

Mayonnaise and aioli tend to have similar consistency and flavor. However, what makes the two different? The primary distinction between these is that mayonnaise is an emulsion of egg yolks and canola oil, while aioli is an emulsion made from garlic and olive oil.

What Is the Difference Between Spicy Mayo and Yum Yum Sauce?

Have you ever been to a hibachi grill or Chinese restaurant where yum yum sauce was offered? You could be wondering how this sauce differs from mayonnaise.

In reality, yum yum sauce is similar to mayonnaise because it contains it as one of the primary ingredients. In addition to mayonnaise, a yum yum sauce recipe typically includes tomato paste, garlic powder, paprika, sugar, and water.

Is Spicy Mayonnaise the Same as Sriracha Mayonnaise?

In some cases, the main ingredient of spicy mayonnaise is a few tablespoons of sriracha sauce. But every spicy mayonnaise may feature different ingredients that give it a unique spice and flavor, from chipotle sauce to taco seasoning.

10 Ways To Use Spicy Mayonnaise in Your Kitchen

Now that you know more about what spicy mayonnaise is and how TRUFF Spicy Mayonnaise stands apart, let's get into a few meal ideas. If you're stumped about how to add our spicy truffle mayonnaise to your meals, reading this list will give you a few hunger-inducing ideas.

1. Make Potato Salad With a Kick

Potato salad doesn't have to be reserved for Easter brunch or baby showers. You can make this side dish with an interesting twist that keeps your party guest coming back for more.

Spicy mayonnaise instead of regular mayo can bring this side dish from a modest party staple to a side your guests cannot stop talking about. You may want to make extra in case anyone wants seconds. You can always store the leftovers in an airtight container like a sealed mason jar or a small bowl with a lid.

2. Whip Up a Unique Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Let's talk about another party fan-favorite –– spinach and artichoke dip. This dish is typically known as an appetizer, but don't underestimate its appeal. Add spicy mayonnaise to the mixture of sour cream and parmesan cheese, and you'll have an appetizer that will be empty after just a few minutes of prep time.

3. Spread It on Your Favorite Burger

Many people know mayonnaise as a condiment that can help elevate backyard barbecue foods such as hot dogs and cheeseburgers. At your next backyard cookout, try putting out TRUFF Spicy Mayonnaise. Spicy mayonnaise on a perfectly-cooked burger makes for a mouth-watering combination at all times of the year.

4. Add It to a Club Sandwich

Mayonnaise is also well-known as an ingredient used to make club sandwiches more delicious. If you're not someone who likes spicy, adding TRUFF Mayonnaise to your club can enhance your sandwich.

However, if you're looking for a more exciting sandwich, spicy mayonnaise will absolutely do the trick. Never eat a sub-par sandwich again.

5. Reinvent Mashed Potatoes

Imagine the creamiest, most delicious mashed potatoes your mind can think up. They're most likely rich in flavor with a dense texture. It’s not just those carbs that make them so addictive, either; it’s the texture and the carbohydrates that make mashed potatoes a staple.

The next time you make mashed potatoes, you could reinvent the dish you know and love by adding exciting spicy mayonnaise into the mix. When you take one bite of spicy mashed potatoes, you'll be hooked.

6. Make Spicy Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are another famous party tray appetizer. Regular deviled eggs are already fantastic, but substituting spicy mayonnaise for regular mayonnaise in the center of the boiled eggs can make this dish sensational.

7. Use It as a Dipping Sauce

If you're a fan of sweet potatoes, french fries, or hash browns dipped in aiolis or other dipping sauces, why not try these with something new? Mixing a bit of spicy mayonnaise into your favorite aioli recipe can make for a delicious dipping experience.

8. Make a Spicy Tuna Sandwich

Mixing cooked tuna with mayonnaise on top of bread slices with lettuce and tomato makes an easy sandwich any day of the week. You can prepare this tuna salad sandwich with luxury truffle mayo and enjoy the results. But when you're hungry for something brand new, try substituting our TRUFF Spicy Mayonnaise for a sandwich that has a mild kick.

9. Bake a Tomato Tart

Making the same foods over and over? Try adding a new recipe to your rotation. If it's chilly outside, baking a tomato tart can help warm you up. Add spicy mayonnaise to the cream of your tart for even more heat.

10. Create a Veggie Dip

Mayonnaise can also function as a base for many vegetable dips. If you have these ingredients, you're set to make a veggie dip that is obsession-worthy:

  • Mayonnaise
  • Lemon juice
  • Sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • Seasonings (paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, dill, parsley, salt, and pepper)

These ingredients can make a perfectly lovely vegetable dip. But add spicy mayonnaise into the equation, and your dip will become transcendent.
