How many times have you made your own mayonnaise and then thought to yourself… what in the world am I going to do with all this mayo? Is anyone with me on this one?
It doesn’t happen to me often, but on occasion I go to the great lengths of making my own mayo and literally every time I do this, I’m stumped with what to do with all the leftovers. I don’t happen to eat mayo that often which probably begs the question of why I make my own homemade stuff to begin with. It’s not like I eat sandwiches every day. And it’s not like I have a bunch of people eating sandwiches in one day. It’s just me. And my dog. And he doesn’t eat mayo. But sometimes you need a recipe that calls for mayo and it’s just easier to make it yourself if you don’t have any. Also if you make it yourself you can control the oil that goes into it so you can make a healthier mayo made with avocado oil or olive oil.
If you’re like me and you’ve ever wondered what to do with a whole bunch of mayonnaise, I have the answer for you. And it’s so simple. It literally takes about 20 minutes and a few ingredients. You can make drop biscuits. That’s right. The secret ingredient in this recipe is mayo. This biscuits are a bit fluffy and crumbly instead of dense and buttery in case you have a biscuit texture preference. I don’t discriminate. I love all biscuits.
You may, at this point, be wondering what the heck you can do with a batch of biscuits. I can think of tons of ways to eat biscuits but if you can’t I’ll give you a few ideas. First of all, you can just eat them warm out of the oven. Or you can make biscuits and gravy. You could also try making a biscuit breakfast sandwich with eggs and cheese and sausage or bacon or veggies. Or a biscuit dinner sandwich for that matter. How about some biscuit dressing? My point being, there are myriad ways you can plow through this batch of biscuits in case you need some sort of inspiration.
