This weekend was scheduled to be hot and humid w/ house guests. Not wanting to heat up the kitchen I made potato salad, ham salad and egg salad in advance. I also laid in a supply of cold cuts.

The House Guests had car troubles and had to cancel.

I'm not worried about the cold cuts. I know I can freeze the cold cuts.

Can I freeze the mayonnaise-based salads? Will they be edible when thawed? Will they be safe to eat when thawed?

Hmmm. Seems like they'd be safe as far as health, but I'm not sure the Mayo would hold together. It would probably separate (fats) and be lumpy gross as it thawed.

Freeze-thaw of the salads could result in a big mess.

Thanks, all.

I Googled and learned that while freezing mayonnaise is a Bad Idea, Miracle Whip can be frozen (according to Kraft Foods and Kraft Foods should know).

As for my lovely salads, Mr. Noddy's meals for the next few days are going to be a little repetious. Faithful Dog has offered to give up peanut butter for the duration and have her pills embedded in salad. Ham salad is preferred, but egg salad will be accepted.

The roast beef has been converted to steak sandwiches.

The best laid plans of women and wombats can be implemented in hostile circumstances by the best of women and wombats.

Squinney--

Why not?

She won't touch raw eggs or cooked egg white, but she's fond of egg salad, scrambled eggs and deviled eggs--and has been for 14 years.

I Googled and found:

The few times Gracie got to clean up after breakfast it resulted in having to air the house for a week.

That's all. Very Happy

Squinney--

Not to worry. Pit bulls are much better than sweet, innocent beagles at digesting sulphurous compounds.

Infernal beasts have some advantages.

I had a fourth grade nun (Sister Atilla) who we called "God's wombat". We just ;leaned of such an animal and began using the term in everyday plain language. Wombats had never been so popular than in Allentown of 1958.

@Noddy24,
The comment 'Please don't feed your dog eggs. If I were on the East coast I wouldn't mind was a joke the person was making. Eggs are high in sulfur. Thus, they would create nasty doggy farts and doggy farts are bad enough on their own without help from the eggs. LOL

@Noddy24,
Hi There, I saw that you'd looked up articles about the eggs not being bad for doggies. That comment that was made about being on the other coast was a joke. Doggie farts are really bad. But eggs contain alot of sulfur and would make those doggie farts even worse. That person wants to be on the other coast when that doggie starts releasing sulfurized wind! LOL

@KatrionaSolas,
One more thing on the subject of freezing egg salad? My husband has a cast iron stomach. I've got extra egg and green olive salad with real mayo. I'm freezing it in the hopes it'll turn out fine for him. If I have to trash it after it thaws then I would have had to trash it when it went bad anyhow. Right? What have I got to lose. However, since I have Systemic Lupus I have to take pills to digest protein. My body can't digest it entirely on it's own. I also have to eat foods that are lower in protein. So eggs are entirely out of the menu for me.
