Chili Mayo/28 Recipes Down

Okay, so this is just a weird little addition to my latest obsession with trying to cook everything that Sam the Cooking Guy has published in two of his cookbooks. If you actually read my drivel here, then thanks for hangin' with me, but you know that sometimes I go off on a tangent. Like, sometimes, I need to make something from his show that's not in the books so I have to go find it online.

This is one of those times.

The other night, I was watching a never before seen rerun of "Sam the Cooking Guy" on our local cable access station. It was one where Sam was tailgating at a football stadium, presumably the Chargers stadium in San Diego. I looked for a clip online of it, and couldn't find it. I couldn't even find the recipe on his website. But I'm going to post it here anyway, because all I'm posting is just a small part of the finished recipe.

Sam made a soy marinated mushroom and Swiss cheeseburger, large enough to feed like 4-8 people. He mixed some mayo and some chili sauce (the bottle looked like Sriracha sauce, specifically, the kind with the rooster), and then spread that on the bun.

We were making BLT's today for lunch, and I decided to whip up some of that same sauce. Instead of Sriracha, I had some sweet chili sauce. That's all it was: equal parts of mayo and the sauce.

What did I learn from this recipe?
I've used this saying before, and it applies here today: "Taste so good, make you wanna slap yo'mama!" Holy hell...you know what I learned? I learned you can mix chili sauce with damn near anything and it'll taste like heaven!

It was so good that Shane wanted some for his sandwich, so I had to make up another container of it to leave in the frig for a little while for other stuff to try it with. :)
