Chef Notes:
Make-Ahead: You can make these up to 1 day ahead of time.
How to Store: Cover and keep refrigerated for up to 4 days. These will not freeze well.
You can also add flavor enhancers like Dijon mustard or hot sauce.
Be sure your yolks are all the way cooked through.
Try finely grating the yolk on a Microplane if you want it to be perfectly smooth.
You can get creative and add in any other additional things such as different cheeses, oils, or other mashed ingredients.
Sub the mayonnaise for yogurt if you are trying to watch calories.
