Durkee's Famous sauce

A recipe for remoulade by Justin Wilson mentions this sauce.  Has anyone used it?  If so any recipes?

    I use it frequently. I especially love it on a turkey sandwich, and sometimes on a hamburger. But I don't use it in any recipes.
     
    Think of it as a really tasty mayonnaise.

    Gawd.  I have 2 bottles in 'fridge now.  That is some good stuff.
     
    Egg Salad MY Way:
     
    Boil eight to ten eggs.
    Fry a pound of bacon (save drippings, dummy).
    Let eggs cool; peel.
    Crumble bacon.
     
    In a bowl; press eggs through 1/4 inch wire mesh (I use spouse's cake thingie.  Don't ask me cause I have no idea what it is called. ;)
     
    Add bacon and enough Duke's mayo to make moist.  Stir & taste.  Add more mayo and several grinds of black pepper.  Taste again.
     
    Now add Duke's Famous Sauce; tablespoon at a time.  Stir carefully.  You don't want a mushy mess.  You will know when is right.  Marinate in fridge for at least two hours.
     
    Get out the Ritz crackers and dig in.  Sprinkle on some Cayenne if you dare.

    Yes, it's quite good.  It's a uniquely flavored mustard-mayo spread, and I often add it to tuna salad, potato salad, etc.  Hard to find, though.  Only 2 stores here sell it, one of them being Wal-Mart.  Some sources say it was used in the Lincoln White House!

    D'oh!  You may have already gathered that by reading the link!  Didn't see that until after my post.

    I use it when I make  deviled eggs, chicken salad, egg salad, tuna salad, love it on a ham sandwich, adds a different taste to a grilled cheese and tomato sandwich.  I used to make a chicken dish  that included DFS as an ingredient in the sauce.

    OK, so they call it "famous", yet in all my travels and experimentations I've never seen it outside of the picture above nor have I ever heard of it.  I just find that funny.

    Of course, now I'm going to have to try some if it's so darn good...

    I found Durkee's Famous Sauce at the Super Fresh here in Ocean City.  It is pretty good, and at the first taste I thought DEVILED EGGS. 
     
    I can't help but wonder if it tastes the same as it did when Mrs. Lincoln gave it to Old Abe.

    I absolutely worship this stuff ever since I found out about it.  It's as hard to find as it is versatile!  One freakin' store (Price Chopper) out of the eight or nine in my vicinity carries it.  Stop 'n' Shop used to but stopped some months ago.  I use it on so many things.
     
    Also, it's the only place I've seen the "Durkee" name ever since the old Durkee french fried onions became French's.

    It's hard to find, but delicious. 
     
    It was everywhere at my former C.C. in Arlington, VA - even at the 9th. hole snack shack! 
     
    It also makes a nice, tangy addition to creamy salad dressings.  At the Club, "Larry's Special Salad", the best entree salad I've ever had, features it.

    I assume you mean Durkee's, not Dukes??
    There's also a Duke's Mayo, Not to be confused with Durkee's Famous???

    My local Super Fresh had Durkee's, but I guess all the new flavored mayo Hellman's and Kraft came out with pushed it off the shelf.  No more

    I had Durkee's on my sandwich earlier today. It was just olive loaf, Swiss cheese and black pepper on white bread spread with Durkee's.

    Good recipe, I would add minced Scallions!

    I have now switched to a local brand made by a lady who runs a German restaurant in Houston, MN.
