Miracle Whip isn't mayonnaise--it is a cooked salad dressing. Homemade Miracle Whip Recipe - Food.com - 41781
My grandmother used to make a cooked salad dressing similar to the above.

I do take FRESH hard boiled eggs (still warm) and make egg salad with mayonnaise with a dash of curry, but not MW. And, once we get the 2nd flock, I'll be making my own EVOO mayo. Counting the sleeps until Sunday, except I work a weird schedule, so sleeps sometimes are 2-hour naps several times during a 24-hour period!

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's mayo.

I use it exactly as I would any mayo. To me, it's just another type of mayo. Millions of other people agree with me. It sells like crazy. Has more shelf space than any other brand in every store I shop in.

I beg to differ--MW has sugar and flour in it and is cooked--mayonnaise is eggs, lemon juice, and oil that is added slowly to the eggs, and not cooked. Mayo also does not contain flour, you can sprinkle some sugar in when adding flavoring, but the base recipe does not have sugar in it and the process to make it is different. MW is cheaper than mayo, hence, why there is probably more of it on the shelves. They don't taste the same. That's like saying whipped cream and cool whip are the same--they aren't.

More people buy it. That's why it has more shelf space. I think it tastes way better than any other store bought mayo. Why argue about what it's called? It's mayo to me and many, many other people.

You think differently. No problem.

Timothy, Timothy, Timothy. Much as I hate to do it, I must turn you in to the Hellman's Police.

Oh NO! Not the Hellman's Police!

I like Helmans too. I like many of them and eat them when Miracle Whip isn't available. They're all good second choices to me.

OMG, I think I hear jackboots marching in rhythm to my door.... Yikes, they have Helman's armbands!

Send me the contact info and I'll back you on that. Mayo and MW are NOT the same and using the word "mayo" to describe MW is blasphemy. What kind of time is Timothy facing? I mean, he did turn 59 today...(Happy B'day, Timothy!)

We're Miracle Whip, and we won't tone it down
The point is, it is still not mayonnaise and I doubt the folks in Belguim, France, Quebec, or other areas would ever consider putting MW on their fries. YUCK. I accidently bought a jar of MW four years ago (I'd make my own if I needed to use it). I brought it back to the store and dropped it in the Food Bank box.

It's like saying a natural blonde and an "artificial" blonde are both blondes.

I don't allow others to dictate what I call mayo.

The other mayos aren't necessary as long as I can scrape one last dollop of Miracle Whip Mayo from the jar!
