Taste Test: Baconnaise

Bacon has surpassed cupcakes as the food of the moment: In the past year, we've seen it appear in everything from chocolate to vodka to pork-flavored floss.

Its latest incarnation? Baconnaise, made by J&D's, the brand best known for its Bacon Salt. Since I love both mayo and bacon, as soon as I heard about it, I decided I needed to have it.

On its own, the spread had an incredibly creamy, smoky flavor. When used in place of mayonnaise in my lunchtime BLT, it enhanced the bacon that I couldn't get enough of. I even found myself dipping my potato chips in Baconnaise (a bit too salty, but still delicious), and wondering whether or not it would be kosher to just dip the entire corner of my sandwich into the jar. (For the record, Baconnaise itself is certified kosher.)

The best aspect of Baconnaise is the fact that even people who don't like mayonnaise might love it. Aside from its creamy texture, it really bears no resemblance to mayonnaise. And Baconnaise only includes milk and eggs, which means that for once, vegetarians can take part in bacon, if they so choose.

It's my new favorite thing. I mean, why eat regular mayonnaise ever again, when one can enjoy the savory roundedness of Baconnaise? For those of you who have tried it, did you like it as much as I did?

I have never heard of this but I sure hope I can find it in my local supermarket. Sounds yum! My kids would love this. I bet this is full of sodium though.

ilanac13, I just read the ingredient list and bacon is not on it, so it must be an artificial flavor. :P

I don't really like mayonnaise but I'd be interested to see what kind of flavor this adds to a sandwich. Good idea to use it on a blt.

fuzzles, bacon deviled eggs do sound delightful! You should be able to find Baconnaise at a local store. There's even a store locator here.

i've tried the bacon salt. the boy had to have it bc he loves all things bacon... i put it on eggs and hash browns. i am not a fan of bacon but it's actually not so bad. tastes like bacon to me. i'd say it was a good buy.

If it was bacon finely chopped up into mayo it might be good, but the ingredients list is 20+ items long and *none* of them is bacon! Faux bacon flavour? Ew.

One of my good friends says that she thinks of me every time that she sees the Beggin' Strips commercial, so this is probably right up my alley.

Holy Hell! I just felt a little *tingle* imagining this in egg salad or deviled eggs! Must. Try. :faint: YumSugar, do tell. Did you find this at the grocery in the mayo section or in a specialty area?

I would try this. It sounds like it would be awesome spread thinly in a grilled cheese sandwich.
