Watch Mario Batali Discuss Banana-and-Mayonnaise Sandwiches


Of course Mario Batali had an obligation to praise mayonnaise at Hellmann’s 100th-anniversary party, but he took it a little far. Batali told Potluck Video’s Ali Rosen that he uses mayonnaise as a substitute for fat in cupcakes, burgers, coffee cakes — and adds it to bananas. “I do a little Hellmann’s balsamic, a thin slice of bananas, and then a little bit of Sriracha hot sauce, and it’s one of the greatest sandwiches of all time,” he says. Watch it all, straight ahead.
