That Other Spread


For the Heck of It

Seeing as I wind up with a free egg white whenever I make my favorite mayonnaise, and seeing as the spouse prefers Miracle Whip anyway, I started experimenting with trying to approximate that tangy spread at home as well.

I followed my gut on the flavor profile and have landed on something that I think works.


Mayo on the right, Miracle Whip-inspired spread on the left

I took my basic mayo recipe, and made the following changes:

  • MWEgg white instead of yolk
  • Sugar (~1 tsp)
  • Way less Dijon (<1/4 tsp)
  • White vinegar instead of the lemon juice and cider vinegar

So that nets out to:

  • 1 egg white
  • 1/8 tsp mustard
  • 3/4 cup Canola (or other low fat, neutrally-flavored oil)
  • 2 1/2 tsp white vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
