When an article starts with a food that Jews hate and devolves into comparisons with semen, I really begin to wonder who is editing Slate these days.

Chicken, tuna, or egg salad overloaded with mayonnaise is disgusting, but mayo does have its place.  When accompanied by malt vinegar it's the perfect condiment for fries or fish and chips for instance.

While mayo doesn't belong on a pastrami sandwich, a nice alternative to (or addition to) the traditional mustard is Russian dressing.

BuzzFeed ran an article recently calling it "the devils condiment"

lol no...it was a series of pictures with short captions underneath them. BuzzFeed is for people who think sentences, let alone articles, are too long and boring.

Now granted, this "article" would make Andy Rooney scream "get to the farking point!", but it is still an "article".

I prefer four: two to lubricate the bun, and two reserve packets for use ad libitum on bites that demand an extra squirt of condiment.

I used to do this in front of a kid I worked with who HATED mayonnaise. I'd also moan and roll my eyes when taking a bite. I could see him struggle not to gag.  Good times.

I have nothing against mayo (or for that matter Miracle Whip, but that's a whole different thread), but it has NO place on fries.

Old Bay and malt vinegar is an acceptable variation.

I've liked mayo as long as I can remember. Never cared for mustard though, the taste seemingly overpowers the flavor of everything else in the sandwich.

Also love some mayo on burgers, especially burgers fresh off the grill, de-lish!

Mayonnaise is mandatory on BLTs and hamburgers, to protect the bun from getting soggied by the hot grease.

And I'm bothered by the idea of someone who keeps kosher biatching about what condiment is used on a bacon sandwich.

That's funny. I've always used mustard on both, and never had a problem with sogginess. Of course, I don't make my burgers or BLTs with wonderbread, either.

Under halacha (Jewish religious law), eggs are parve -- neither meat nor dairy. So, they can be eaten with anything. Here in Israel, it's common to put an egg on a burger rather than cheese.

I prefer Tabasco sauce on my BLTs rather than mayo.  There's something about the hotness of the Tabasco blending nicely with the bacon's saltiness.

I don't necessarily hate mayonnaise but I am allergic to it (egg allergy) so I am a real pain in the ass when I try to order burgers or sandwiches.  I was once thrown out of a tavern after a BBQ beef sandwich arrived unexpectedly with mayo and I asked it they could redo it without the condiment.

And, allergy to mayo or not, the only condiment that belongs on a proper pastrami sandwich is one of many varieties of mustard.

Exactly, everyone knows fries are best slathered in ranch dressing.

I keed ---- sorta.  Tartar sauce is fine.  Mayonnaise by itself is revolting.

Similarly, while guacamole is wonderful, avocado by itself is just bleh at best.

Yes, but not that crap in the bottle.

I don't know what they do the bottled crap, but it is just horrible-- bitter with bad aftertaste.

I'm half Jewish and I never heard that. I thought it was black people that stereotypically hated mayo. Anyway, ranch is the good version of mayo.

So, back when I was at school, a bunch of us in the engineering department got together regularly for lunch.  One day, one of the (larger) Mech-E guys had fries, which he dipped in a mixture of ketchup, mustard and mayo.  My brother noticed this, and asked what it was like.  The Mech-E said to try some.

My brother dipped a fry in it, ate it, made the most sour looking face I'd seen on him, and then said, in a Yoda voice, "How do you get so big eating food of this kind?"

Three people (myself included) fell off their chairs laughing.

/Still haven't tried mayo on fries myself.

Now that, I can agree on with you.


Heinz-57 sauce mixed with mustard and black pepper works for all kinds of things, hamburgers and fries especially.  Add a little malt vinegar for fries.  Tabasco instead of black pepper would probably work.  Ketchup can do instead of Heinz-57 sauce in a pinch.

And if you put any mayonnaise on my burger ....

I had some of this on a burger for dinner last night. It was great.

I agreed with you until I moved to Peru. They have wonderful avocado (palta) here. The cafeteria where I work makes a little breakfast sandwich of a fresh bun with avocado slices on it. No condiments, nothing else. It's like candy. Costs. 50 cents.
