Alton Brown's All-Time Favorite Brand Of Mayo
By Betsy Parks
Chef Alton Brown has often professed his love for Duke's Mayonnaise, and it's an important endorsement because he uses mayonnaise for much more than just tuna salad.
If you want to make scrambled eggs or a perfectly grilled steak like Brown does on his TV show "Good Eats," you've got to have a jar of Duke's handy.
This regional classic is Brown's favorite because it's made with apple cider vinegar. Its distinct, sour flavor cuts through the fattiness of the mayo to make a balanced spread.
Duke's, which is owned by Sauer Brands, originated in Greenville, South Carolina. It's largely unchanged from the original recipe created by Eugenia Duke during WWI.
