Comfort Foods & A Mother’s Love

In honor of Mother’s Day and mamas everywhere, let’s celebrate the comfort foods of childhood that always make us feel loved. You know the ones — the simple favorites you make for yourself and your family, because they bring so much joy. Whether tucked into lunchboxes, served as an after school snack, enjoyed on a lazy Saturday, or made for pretend tea parties, they’re the little indulgences that quietly say, “I love you.” Bring back delicious memories of Mama with these recipes:

Tomato Sandwich

When tomato season rolls around, create something simple yet magical, like Mama used to do. Add Blue Plate mayo and sliced, ripe tomatoes to your favorite toasted bread for the tastiest treat.

Deviled Eggs

There are about as many ways to make deviled eggs as there are mamas. No matter how you make them, this classic is always appreciated. Whip up these creamy stuffed eggs, and watch them disappear.

BLTs

What could be more timeless than a BLT? Crispy bacon, ripe tomatoes, fresh lettuce, Blue Plate mayo, and hearty bread. It’s a sandwich stuffed with love and you can customize it any number of ways. Get the whole family in on it with a BLT bar.

Fried Green Tomatoes

Green tomatoes are firm, tart and slightly sweet. Mama makes them up fried, crispy and topped with homemade Garlic-Herb Mayo. Eat them on their own, or on top of a traditional BLT sandwich.

Mac and Cheese

Your friends and family all tell you your Mom’s macaroni and cheese is the best they’ve ever eaten. It’s that good. Her little secret: Blue Plate Mayonnaise.

Southern Style Tuna Salad

Classic tuna salad sandwiches are a forever lunchbox favorite. This particular recipe features sweet pickle relish, which adds a nice little crunch and an extra burst of flavor.

Southern Drop Biscuits

Making fluffy homemade biscuits is easier than you think and a great way to make a Saturday mornings feel special.

Perfect Grilled Cheese

For kids and adults alike, the perfect grilled cheese brings ooey gooey satisfaction. Mom’s tip: spread mayo on the outside of each slice of bread for a gorgeous golden brown hue that won’t burn (because mayo has a higher smoke point than butter).
