BACON FAT MAYONNAISE! Normal mayo just has plain old oil but Toasty mayo goes full tilt fat kid crazy. Just 3 tablespoons of bacon fat drizzled in and a pinch or two of smoked salt (new favorite, thanks Giada!) make the mayo smoky and full of bacony depth. Add a couple of cloves of roasted garlic, because I always have a few on hand in my freezer, and it is my paradise.
Guys, it is just about the simple things. Plump tomatoes, crunchy fresh greens, fresh bread from the French ex-pats in my neighborhood, and a killer mayo. Oh and bacon. Always bacon.
