You’re already talking about Thanksgiving sandwiches. How do we know? We’re also already talking about Thanksgiving sandwiches. Several times recently at FR Headquarters, we’ve devolved from orderly editorial team into a room of disjointed people, who all believe they’re right, yelling about sandwiches.
Enter: Brooklyn condiment haven Empire Mayo, purveyors of small-batch mayonnaise made with all-natural cage-free eggs, in outrageous flavors like the current offerings ghost pepper and black garlic. One-off varieties like Indian lime pickle, hen of the woods mushroom and nori sell out in a matter of weeks. The company’s latest endeavor: making your holiday sandwich the very best holiday sandwich it can be, period (I’m not having this debate again), with stuffing-flavored mayo.
“Stuffing has always been my favorite part of a Thanksgiving meal,” says cofounder and chef Sam Mason. “This mayo has all the elements of a classic recipe — crunchy toasted bread, savory Herbs de Provence spices from the Greenpoint Trading Co., and a hint of crisp bacon that just begs to be a part of your Black Friday creations.”
As the crafter of the best Thanksgiving sandwiches in history, this is a huge development. I was going to use Empire’s rosemary mayo, but this hits the spot in a very authoritative and omniscient way.
