Home made mayo too runny, what should I use it for?

I know what went wrong, that's not the problem. I have 4 cups of runny mayo, making Caesar dressing tomorrow, going to use some to marinate chicken breasts, any other great uses?

  1. Hate to answer your question with a question, but what's up with mayo in a Caesar dressing? I've never heard of that. What else are you putting in it? Please.

      I can see repurposing a *runny* mayo in Caesar salad dressing, replacing the yolks and oil, maybe some of the lemon juice. Doesn't seem far-fetched to me. In fact it sounds like a clever solution.

        Never said far-fetched, just asking. And OP gave the recipe she uses and it makes perfect sense.

        They're pretty similar, other than proportions and some seasoning. It never occurred to me until now and I have made both.

          Here is the one I have used for years' Husband is very particular about his Caesar dressing and has had every one in restaurants near and far, this is his favorite. I don't care if it's not right, he won't back down.

        2. Try using it in place of butter on a grilled cheese or some such. It's surprisingly good. Apparently that idea also works with garlic bread, though I haven't tried it.

            1. There are lots of cake recipes that all for mayo - it's just eggs and oil, after all.

                I use mayo in banana bread- turns out really good!

              2. You could mix it up with some sour cream and blue cheese and grated garlic for a nice salad dressing.
